Tunnelling Section Engineers plan and program works for a range of tunnelling section projects.
They engineer the construction of sprayed concrete chambers and form tunnels with the use of specialist tunnel boring machines, connecting communities and locations whilst minimalizing the impact on the surface environment.
They manage the technical aspects associated with tunnelling and prepare short term programmes for a section of works, ensuring the appropriate materials and resources are available.
Employment in this role may necessitate lengthy periods of time in a confined environment, working underground.
Entry requirements typically mean tunnelling section engineers hold a degree-level qualification in Engineering or a similar numerate discipline. An HND or HNC in a relevant industry qualification offers an alternative to university study.
Industry experience as a site or section engineer and a knowledge of systems and equipment are important. Similarly, a working knowledge of the Roads and Street Works Act is essential.
