Civil Engineer

Hello, my name is Aoife and I work for a company that specialises in civil engineering. Does anyone know what civil engineers do? Civil engineering is all about improving and protecting the world around us. It sounds simple doesn’t it?!

At work I help develop and construct airports, bridges, roads, railways, tunnels and even roller coasters! But not only those - civil engineers also try and solve environmental problems like air pollution, waste treatment, coastal protection and ways to prevent flooding.

Do you have any ideas on how we could prevent flooding in Ireland? Maybe you could become a civil engineer, like me!
