• Question: In your field as an engineer do you work independently or on groups? Does it depend on the size of the object you are fixing? If you do work in groups, do you like it?

      Its a bit of both. So i would develop the electrical design on my own, but i need to work with the mechanical engineer, structural engineer and architect to ensure we are all coordinated.

      I really depends on the task I do. We do a lot of independent work in regards to going away from the team and doing are part but a lot is teamwork. If we didn’t work together the structure wouldn’t get built. We have to work together to get things set out, built on time and to the budget. Why communication is very important in Civil Engineering.
