Have you ever wondered what your day would look like as an engineer? What would you be doing? What responsibilities would you have? Well, the answer is: it depends. And it depends on a lot of things.

In this episode, Luis and Nicolai dive deeper into their daily lives to show you how different it can be, even though they’re both civil engineers. Their main roles and the companies they work for are different, which makes a day in the life of one completely different from the other.

While Luis works more on the technical side of things, Nicolai is more on the management side of the profession. But one thing they both do is work on areas beyond their main roles within their companies. This includes business development, marketing, etc.

How? Contrary to what most people think, there’s a lot more that goes into an engineering job than simply crunching numbers 24/7. A day in your life as an engineer will certainly not be like that. And in this episode, you’ll learn how to make the most out of every work day.
