What does an engineer’s office look like? Maybe you’re studying engineering and wondering. Maybe you’re at high school and considering career options.
Take our 360 degree office view for a spin (literally):
I remember that as a university student in Townsville, our structural engineering class visited the engineering office where a recent graduate from James Cook University. worked He was working as a structural engineer and he arranged for us to visit one of his construction sites. It was amazing. That was one of my first encounters with suspended concrete slabs and I remember aspects of that visit vividly.
Consider Structural Engineering
So, if you’re working hard at high school or already studying engineering at university – consider a career in structural engineering. We maybe don’t have the world’s most *amazing* office, but every day we help people in our communities satisfy one of their most basic needs – the need for shelter.
As structural engineers, we do get to use cool analytical tools, we do work with really smart designers and planners and on a daily basis we apply our minds to solving conceptual problems long before they manifest themselves on a construction site. A fantastic mix of office work and site work.
