Civil Engineering Technician

Professional Civil Engineers, Technologists and Technicians design, construct and maintain the infrastructure that we depend on every day, like our roads, railways and bridges; energy and water supply; waste networks and flood defenses.

Keeping this infrastructure running effectively is a family tradition for Thokoza Mthembu, who is following in his father’s footsteps as he enters the field as an applicant Technician at BMK Engineering Consultants in KZN.


Civil engineers, technologists and technicians have to come up with solutions to complex problems and implement them; they literally shape the world we live in, join. Watch video
