Career Opportunities A person holding this qualification is prepared for a career as an engineering technician in the construction industry. Three basic activities are dealt with, namely planning and design, construction, and maintenance. The work to be performed will vary, depending on the area in which the individual is working, but in all respects, he/she will be required to assist professional engineers. Other work will involve surveying, design, cost accounting, draughting, traffic studies and material testing. Career opportunities exist in government departments such as Water Affairs, as well as organisations such as PRASA, Eskom, mining companies, construction firms, civil consulting engineers, and research institutions. A person holding this qualification can also start his/her own business.
