Geotechnical Engineers

Employment for civil engineers is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Population growth coupled with the country's aging infrastructure will spark the need for more civil engineers. Projects they will be needed for include designing and constructing or expanding transportation, water supply, and pollution-control systems, as well as buildings and building complexes and helping to develop renewable energy projects (including wind farms and solar arrays). Civil and geotechnical engineers will also be needed to renovate or replace roads, bridges, or other structures.
