Chemical engineers design and coordinate the construction and operation of manufacturing facilities and processes that convert raw materials into everyday products such as petrol, toothpaste, pharmaceuticals and plastics.
Chemists study the physical and chemical properties of materials to determine their composition. They use this information to develop new materials and products, to devise more efficient processes for making materials and to increase scientific knowledge. Chemists should not be confused with pharmacists (see separate entry for Pharmacist).
Chinese medicine practitioners treat disorders and illnesses through the application of traditional Chinese medicine practices such as Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and tui na (remedial massage).
Civil and structural engineering associates provide technical support to civil engineers and civil engineering technologists. They assist with the research, design, construction, operation and maintenance of projects such as roads, airports, railways, buildings, bridges, dams and drainage systems.
Civil celebrants design, plan and perform civil (non-religious) marriage ceremonies, funerals, commitment ceremonies, namings and other ceremonies, in consultation with individuals, couples and families.
Civil construction workers compact, level and spread materials to form roads and footpaths, perform minor repairs to damaged surfaces, maintain bridges, and repair signs and guideposts. They also undertake general roadside maintenance such as grass cutting, weed control and litter collection.
Civil engineering technicians conduct tests of construction materials and prepare sketches and tables for civil engineers and civil engineering technologists. They assist with the research, design, construction, operation and maintenance of projects such as roads, airports, railways, buildings, bridges, dams and drainage systems.
Civil engineering technologists assist civil engineers in the research, design, construction and maintenance of civil engineering projects. Typical projects include dwellings, large buildings, railways, roads, bridges, airports, ports and docks, dams and water supply systems.
