Civil and Structural Engineering underpins the planning, design and construction of private and public buildings and facilities, bridges and roads, water infrastructure and more. The industry has two major branches: design (also known as engineering consulting) and construction. The Associate Degree in Civil and Structural Engineering (Site Management) was developed by TAFE SA to respond to the workforce development needs of the civil and structural construction industry in South Australia. The civil and structural construction industry is one of South Australia’s major employers. It is the only para-professional qualification in South Australia that prepares you for a site engineer role. You may work as a site engineer or project manager. Your work may involve project programming, quality control, managing construction teams, liaising with sub-contractors and suppliers and communications with project stakeholders.
Note: Completion of a TAFE SA course does not guarantee an employment outcome. Formal requirements other than educational qualifications (eg licensing, professional registration), may apply to some occupations.
