There is a lot of confusion about Civil Engineers and Architects. Although architects and engineers perform many parallel functions that contribute to the design and implementation of buildings and structures, there are also key distinctions between the two disciplines. Understanding the traits that complement each role can help each professional execute building projects.

Thinking Style
Architects and engineers often approach projects from very different perspectives. Much like the Advertising Course under Bachelor of Arts and Advertising under Fine Arts.

While architects rely on creativity and the ability to think theoretically, engineers use a mathematical mindset. From designer to construction, there is a relationship between thinking styles and work duties for architects and engineers.

Specializations

These are other fields in which an architect or an engineer can study or specialize. Architects can focus on commercial, residential or industrial structures. They can even design whole cities. Engineers working on construction can choose horizontal (roads and bridges) or vertical (House and Buildings) construction.

Engineers have specific specialization from their bachelors. They can specialize in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical and Sanitary fields. Under Structural, the Civil Engineer have a choice to become a Geodetic or Survey Engineer, measuring land and topography or Structural, supervising calculations  for stability of buildings.

 

Engineers and Architects can work together.
If you are working on a residential, commercial or institutional building, you may be looking for an illustrator that can help you in space planning and the building aesthetics. We let you do the contracting we do the design.

Try Concept Design for Engineers and Contractors.
