Geotechnical Geotechnical engineering deals with the facilities that make up our infrastructure in, on, or made with earth materials. Structural Structural engineers analyze and design structures to ensure that they safely perform their purpose. Transportation Transportation engineers develop facilities like highways, traffic signals, transit systems, airports and seaports.
