Structural Engineer

Jason Miles, Beca

Earning: $45-50,000
In a nutshell: Designing structures for civil infrastructure.
Why? “I like maths and physics, and now I can use them to do my work.”

Pathway Rosehill College, Year 13: Physics, Calculus, Biology, English, Economics
University of Canterbury: Bachelor of Engineering majoring in Structural Engineering

Jason Miles had no idea what an engineer was until his last year at school.  His mother suggested looking into engineering as a possible career, and he found that it was a good match for his personality.  “If you like solving problems, then this may be the career for you,” he says.

As a graduate structural engineer, Jason is working in the civil/structures section of Beca.  He’s involved in designing infrastructure like bridges, tunnels, retaining walls and culverts. These projects can be quite large in scope, and because they affect the surrounding area and the people who live there, he has to take things like expenses, environmental impact and aesthetics into account. 

“I have been working on the Victoria Park tunnel project, in particular the minor structures leading into and out of the tunnel itself,” he says.  “One of these is a noise barrier near St. Mary’s Bay.  It is five metres high and transparent, which means people will be able to see the park rather than a big concrete wall as they are driving out of the tunnel.”

“This has been a big job for me, as I was running this basically on my own.  It has been quite challenging for us to design and build, and a lot of problem solving is involved.  It will feel so good to see it finished.”

Jason enjoys being able to use his background in maths and physics to solve problems, and he gets to see visible progress from his work at the end of the day.  He’s always learning new ways to get things done.

“Being down at the Victoria Park Tunnel site is amazing,” he says.  “Every day is different and everything is changing about my work all of the time.  It is so exciting to go out on site and see things being developed.”
