Geotechnical

Geotechnical Engineers solve construction problems pertaining to natural materials like soils and rocks found in nature. They find economical solutions to construction problems, design environmentally sound facilities for waste disposal and determine ground improvement techniques that can be used to construct on increasingly scarce land in urban areas.

Examples of some of the geotechnical engineering projects include:

Geotechnical Engineers work in a variety of situations and for various industries designing and constructing structures.
