Who is Design Engineer?

Design Engineer

Civil Designers use computer aided design (CAD) programs to draft, scale, and fine tune drawings and maps for roads, bridges, and other construction projects. They assist project managers and engineers in determining material, labor and other costs.

Civil Designers may work on a variety of specialized projects, such as water supply system, or a traffic management system. Civil design jobs can require a combination of office and occasional field work, depending on the projects. Many designers work for architectural and engineering firms, competition for jobs in this specialty can be fierce.

To Become A Design Engineer:

You mus have a minimum of associate's degree program in drafting technology or computer aided design for architectural and engineering. Programs such as CAD, GIS and construction planning are studied at introductory level.

While a degree can provide a valuable foundation for the aspiring new civil design engineers, some employers require work experience in order to be considered for employment. Many internships, regardless of the field, can lead to a job upon completion, and they're great opportunity to network and establish a contact base to call upon when looking for employment or a higher ranked position. 

In many countries the design architects or engineers need to be certified in order to do a project or work in company and they are called CD's (Certified Drafters) or CDD's (Certified Design Drafters).
They need to pass a test based on basic principles and knowledge of the subject.

Gain advanced design experience. Some jobs ads call for candidates who have experience with specific design and application such as Auto CAD or Bently System MircoStation. While some may also consider knowing only 2D and 3D in GIS design program.

Timber Buildings !?

Timber Buildings !?  Why do we need a timber building? Yes, timber buildings. As on earth human population is on an exponential rise, many and many people are trying to get home in a city where they have easy excess for the workplace for their own living. In the near future, as the population gets more concentrated in cities more and more structures I mean Tall Structures need to be built. Loading Bearing and Comparison So now architects and builders have opted for old Technic of using timber as a building material eliminating concrete and steel. Yes, it is very hard to find this amount of trees but not impossible. It can be grown and regrown as needed. Many projects have been in progress of this idea and it reduces about 75% of carbon emission as compared to concrete and steel structure. Using timber coming directly from the forest doesn't have the appropriate strength required for a high rise building. So designers came up with the new idea of CLT
