To become an civil engineer is not a great thing but to become an good civil engineer is the great thing.
for this there are no hard and fast rules but if you have the knowledge with good attitude then it would become so easy .
i have listed some requirements to become an successful civil engineer.
1. knowledge related to Tests Of Building Materials:
A good civil engineer should have proper knowledge of different tests of building materials for the proper inspection of the building materials.some tests are
Concrete Test: Slump test, compression 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. basic knowledge of geotechnical engineering :
before any construction it is very important to determine the condition of soil in the field on the basis of which make our design . before going for the design work
Various soil tests are conducted to determine the settlement and stability of soils.
3. Uses Of instruments for acquiring data from field :
generally we use measurement tools for the acquiring data from the field.
Usages of surveying instruments like the total station, theodolite etc is also a mandatory knowledge for every civil engineer.also instrument such as GPS,compass
4.updated knowledge of 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.writing Bar Bending Schedule:
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.understanding of Drawing And Design:
Drawing and design are the primary keys of an ongoing project. It provides all the required specifications of that project. Every site engineers should have the analyzing power of such drawings and designs.
7. Estimation and Bills:
Estimation and bills should be prepared 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 form-work, concreting, safety measures etc is also a key aspect.
10. Coordination With Labor:
As a civil engineer, you must know how to deal with labors in a site.
If you have all the above requirements we hope you will be a good and successful Civil Engineer. Best of luck.
