The Civil Engineer Today

Today's title "civil engineer" dates back to 1937 and it was in the same year that the classification into the three categories

  • Architect
  • Engineering Consultant and
  • Civil Engineer

was introduced (2. Civil Engineer Ordinance dated March 2, 1937, BGBI. Nr. 61 /Austrian Federal Law Gazette).

Architects and engineering consultants used to be authorised to plan and supervise work in their related specific specialist area, whereas civil engineers were additionally entitled to execute it.

The Civil Engineer Law of 1993, which came into force on June 1, 1994 provided for the division into only two disciplines: architects and engineering consultants. Civil engineers were henceforth no longer entitled to perform work, yet, all rights that had been granted to civil engineers before the enactment of the new law remained valid to their previous extent.

The institutionalised vocation "civil engineer" features a long tradition that from its very beginning and up to now has been held up by excellently trained specialists who are bound to pre-defined regulations by their Code of Conduct and professional oath. Thus, leading-edge professional qualifications are guaranteed, which is also expressed by the fact that civil engineers assume personal liability for the quality of their performance.
