Soft Skills

CSCE is developing soft skills training programs. The training will concentrate on “soft” factors not currently part of the engineering academic curriculum such as communication, writing and presentation skills and leadership competencies. Our goal is to offer civil engineers tools that would complement their technical training and make a difference to their performance, development and growth.

The following courses can be offered depending upon demand or as in-house presentations:

Leadership Skills
Management and Reporting on Engineering Studies
Writing That Gets Results

If you have suggestions for courses you would like to attend, please write to me at


If you have state-of-the-art knowledge on civil engineering, regulatory, and/or management topics and interpersonal and presentation skills, we’d like to talk with you about leading Continuing Education seminars which may be accredited by EIC for CSCE.

We’re looking for seminars and/or workshops in all civil engineering disciplines and for professionals with solid training experience to present them. We offer the prestige of a nationally recognized program, monetary compensation, travel reimbursement, interaction with colleagues, and an opportunity to improve the practice of civil engineering.
