ANZSCO 233212 Geotechnical Engineer.

ANZSCO 233212 Geotechnical Engineer.

Geotechnical engineers have expertise in the analysis of how rocks and soil react under pressure, especially in the context of constructing buildings. This involves the evaluation of soil and rock behavior, both above and below the ground, with a particular focus on foundation design.

Unit Group 2332: Geotechnical Engineer Professionals.

Civil engineers are responsible for the planning, design, and supervision of a wide range of geotechnical engineering projects. These include projects such as dams, bridges, pipelines, water and gas supply systems, sewage systems, and airports. They often take on the management of large construction endeavors and evaluate the performance and durability of different materials.

In contrast, structural engineers focus on understanding how soil and rock respond to the loads imposed by planned structures and design the foundations accordingly. They also play a role in project budgeting and the development of transportation networks.

Occupations in this Group.

  • 233211 StructuralEngineer
  • 233212 Geotechnical Engineer
  • 233213 Quantity Surveyor
  • 233214 Structural Engineer
  • 233215 Transport Engineer


  • Establishing building procedures, materials, and quality standards as well as creating and interpreting specifications, drawings, plans, and construction methods
  • the development of comprehensive plans for the coordination of site activities, the management of site personnel, and the provision of construction supplies, machinery, and equipment
  • taking soil and rock samples from different depths across locations, analyzing those samples to determine their strength, compressibility, and other properties that affect how they respond when a structure is applied, and determining the safe loading for the soil
  • In order to help with budgetary control, detailed cost plans and estimates are made by reviewing architectural and engineering drawings and specifications.
  • Calculating, assessing, and negotiating design variants while keeping track of design changes and their effects on costs
