Inside this Civil Engineering Assessment

When it comes to defining civil engineering roles in industries, it is a role that necessitates professionals to be excellent at what they do. A civil engineer's duty includes operating at various construction projects such as roads, buildings, bridges, tunnels, airports, etc.  Hence, candidates desirous of becoming an integral part of this domain need to prove their mettle in Mercer| Mettl's civil engineering test.

Mercer | Mettl's civil engineering aptitude test is a pre-employment assessment to assess a candidate's domain knowledge in civil engineering. It measures technical knowledge (basic concepts in civil engineering) a candidate would be expected to possess, such as conceptual clarity on highway pavements, transportation infrastructure, building materials, construction, etc.

Designed by subject matter experts, this civil engineering aptitude test thoroughly reviews candidates' technical abilities. The skills of the candidate are evaluated on three levels - easy, medium and difficult. This civil engineering assessment contains 30 questions to be completed in 30 minutes. Mercer| Mettl's  civil engineering test includes a set of specific role-based application questions to assess the technical competencies on the following aspects:

Engineering Drawing and Surveying:

  • Understanding various methods used in surveying and selecting the proper method according to purpose
  • Ability to use different instruments and tools like compass, levels, theodolite, GPS and their relevant functions
  • Ability to estimate the area of given plots, land maps and 3D cross-sections

Mechanics & Structural:

  • Understanding forces, reactions and principles of equilibrium
  • Understanding and applying principles of the moment, the moment of inertia and axes of bodies
  • Ability to calculate shear, axial, bending and torsional stresses and displacements of the elements

Concrete Technology & Geotechnical Engineering:

  • Understanding different materials like cement, aggregates, types of concrete, types of soils, and their respective uses
  • Ability to compute the strength and properties of hardened concrete; soil and its applications; and methods of testing
  • Ability to design a suitable design mix and foundation for different types of construction with the use of the right quantities and volume
  • Construction Management & Transportation Engineering:
  • Understanding all types of projects, stakeholders and factors in construction; surveys and transport planning
  • Understanding budgets, finances, construction planning, labor and estimation in highway design and road traffic planning
  • Using network diagrams, critical path and PERT techniques in transportation projects and engineering of Railway components

Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulics and Water Resources Engineering:

  • Understanding the mechanics of fluids, flow in pipes, pressures and estimate the losses in pipes which are applied in the design of pipes
  • Understanding the principles of hydraulic machinery and their application
  • Understanding the significance of water resources systems and their management with the help of water-retaining and distributing systems

Key profiles the test is used for:

  • Graduates/Undergraduate Civil Engineering trainees
