A Geotechnical Engineer is an engineer who deals with the engineering behavior of Earth materials. Generally, they conduct and direct the survey of work to analyze the usual behavior of the rocks and soils when placed under by the proposed structures and designing the formations of above as well as the lower ground. The demand of geotechnical engineers are very high in Australia and are hired by different countries around the world.
