Geotechnical Engineer Jobs

Geotechnical Engineer Overview


Geotechnical Engineers are an offshoot of civil engineers, but their daily tasks involve much more fieldwork. Geotechnical Engineers spend the majority of their time sampling the soil and earth in a certain area to determine whether or not it is a suitable location for a given construction project. Afterward, they return to their offices in order to analyze their findings, usually reporting to their superiors or to employees in another division who are waiting on the information to begin building.

Geotechnical Engineer Educational Requirements


The standard level of education to become a Geotechnical Engineer is an associate degree. There is little to no on-the-job training for this field as the components of the position are largely dependent upon prior knowledge. Many Geotechnical Engineers hold degrees in civil engineering or attended a technical program in order to study building construction technology or a related field. A very small number have any more education than a bachelor's degree.

Geotechnical Engineer Job Market


There are 73,100 Geotechnical and Civil engineers employed across the United States with a projected growth of 1 percent by 2022. There are an estimated 15,600 job openings currently available nationwide. Because the job requires a lot of field work, it is not for everyone; however, as more construction projects are proposed and cities expand outward, the demand for competent engineers will increase. Other similar positions include Civil and Environmental Engineer jobs.

Geotechnical Engineer Salary


Geotechnical Engineers have a median income of $61,000 per year although the income range is quite large; depending on the company, experienced engineers can make up to $122,000. The average hourly wage ranges from $29 to $43. The region of employment is a large factor in the amount of pay that a Geotechnical Engineer might receive as is the company that he or she works for.
