About

Engineering Technology in Civil Engineering from Cape Peninsula University of Technology will develop the application of knowledge, independent thinking and communication skills, as well as proficiency in the identification and solution of complex civil engineering problems.  

Overview

At Engineering Technology in Civil Engineering from Cape Peninsula University of Technology graduates will comply with the academic requirements for registration as Professional Technologists.

Careers

Graduates are employed by civil engineering contractors, consulting engineers, and government departments at local, provincial, or national level. Broadly speaking civil engineering is divided into two basic activities: planning and design on the one hand, and construction and maintenance on the other. 

The work will vary considerably according to the field of employment, but in both fields the technician will provide in-depth support, sometimes of a highly specialised nature, to the engineering team. Construction and maintenance projects include bridges, dams, railways, roads, harbours, sewers, pipelines, and other structures. In the planning and design field, the graduate will be engaged in survey, design, costing, estimating, drafting, traffic studies, materials investigation, and testing.
