SCOPE OF GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING
- There is a range of opportunities in the Civil Engineering profession for geotechnical specialists.Those who combine geotechnical knowledge with managerial skills needed in the construction industry is much in demand.
- With shrinking land space available for development, large and complex modern structures may have to be built on the weak ground. Geotechnical engineers plan and execute soil and ground investigations and laboratory testing, understand the results, and propose designs and construction to overcome the difficulties.
Job opportunities available for Geotechnical Engineer are as follows:
Senior System Executive
