TOP TEN REQUIREMENTS IN CIVIL ENGINEER

THESE ARE THE TOP 10 CIVIL ENGINEERING REQUIREMENTS TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL CIVIL ENGINEER:

1. TESTS OF BUILDING MATERIALS:

A good civil engineer should have proper knowledge of different tests of building materials. Some important tests are listed below.
Concrete test : slump test, compressive test, split tensile test, soundness etc.
Soil Test: Core cutter test, compaction test, sand replacement test, triaxial test, consolidation test etc.

Bitumen Test: Ductility test, softening point test, gravity test, penetration test etc.

2. determine the SOIL type:

Various soil tests are conducted to determine the settlement and stability of soils before starting a construction. So as a civil engineer, you should have enough knowledge of these tests which are performed at the site.

3. SURVEYING INSTRUMENTS usage:

Usages of surveying instruments like the total station, theodolite etc is also a mandatory knowledge for every civil engineer. These instruments are used for marking and measurements.

4. indian STANDARD CODES USED IN CONSTRUCTION:

Every country has their standard safety specifications (eg: Is Code) for construction related works. All new construction should be done by following all the rules and procedures mentioned in the standard codes. Otherwise, chances of failure of a structure will be always high.

5. BAR BENDING SCHEDULE (bbs work):

Bar bending schedule is an essential chart for civil engineers. It provides the reinforcement calculation of RC beam such as cutting length, type of bending, the length of bending etc.

6. autocad:

Autocad is the basic software of civil engineering which should every engineer know. It is used to make a drawing for structure.

7. quantity estimation

Quantity of material should be calculated by a civil engineer in a construction project.

8. QUALITY CONTROL: 

Quality control ensures the profit of a project by reducing the extra costs. So you must have a basic knowledge of quality control.

9. ON FIELD MANAGEMENT:

Knowledge of shuttering fixing, concrete casting, safety measures etc is also a key aspect.

10. COORDINATION skill:

As a civil engineer, you must know how to deal with labours at site.
If you have all the above requirements we hope you will be a good and successful Civil Engineer. Best of luck.
