The 6 types of civil engineers in a construction project based on their roles and specialization are:

01 - Designer Engineer

A design engineer is responsible to plan and design the blueprint of the house in a 2D or 3d format. He also creates a smooth roadmap of the construction project in a well-organized manner.

02 - Construction Management Engineer(CME)

CME is particularly an engineer who fills in the role of the project manager and performs various functions pertaining to management such as coordinating, planning, daily monitoring, inventory management, risk analysis, vendor relationships, contract management, cumulative value estimation, and budgeting.
