From bridges and highways to airports and power plants, entire cities depend on the expertise of engineers. Their problem-solving skills are essential to planning, designing, and constructing the modern infrastructures on which society depends And while civil engineers and architects design the structures, it is the job of the construction engineer to transform those plans into realities. Having knowledge of business management and an understanding of the law are crucial when it comes to bringing projects to completion in an efficient and effective manner.
