What steps should you take when selecting a Civil engineer?
Nothing will ever trump experience and education, the better educated and more time they have spent in the industry, the better your choice of expertise. It also counts if youre looking for a general all rounder or someone who specialiszes in their trade.
Do you have any tips for young people wanting to become engineers?
Firstly you need to have your mathematics and physical science sorted, I have to be honest that the lower your marks in these fields can mean a very long spell at university struggling to complete your course. Have a bit of passion for the built environment, if you love being creative in designing and building stuff, youre well on your way.
What does an entry level civil engineer earn?
salaries range from employer to employer. Most graduates who choose to join municipalities or any government department are likely to earn the lowest since the private sector remunerates their entry level employees better than public service first time entrants.
Private Sector: Approx R350 000 per Annum gross
Public Service: Approx R185 000 per Annum gross
What skills are involved in the civil engineer degree?
