Geotechnical Engineers

Employment for civil engineers is expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2022, 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. Civil and geotechnical engineers will also be needed to renovate or replace roads, bridges, or other structures.
