Do you personally feel your job is at threat from the widespread adoption of technology?
That is one of the key questions being asked in New Civil Engineer’s survey of professional engineers as a part of a major insight report into the industry’s readiness to adapt to emerging technologies.
Automation of both construction activities and design processes is being driven by government clients that want to see greater productivity in the sector. Last year contractor Mace predicted that 600,000 construction jobs could be replaced by technology in the next two decades.
Many infrastructure firms are developing their digital strategies to adopt these digital technologies for better project delivery. But what impact could that have on civil engineers and their roles?
New Civil Engineer wishes to explore this further. We have therefore teamed up with Bentley Systems, the global technology provider, to conduct extensive global research around engineers’ readiness and preparedness for “Going Digital”. This research will also explore which technology trends are set to have the greatest impact and where the biggest gaps between opportunity and readiness exist.
The findings will be reported in New Civil Engineer later this year. Click here to access the survey.
