Geotechnical engineering is a subcategory of civil engineering that analyzes the mechanics of soils and rocks in the building and excavation for a site.  Every construction design infrastructure that is supported by foundations, above or below ground such as bridges, dams, plants, slopes, structures, tunnels, etc. uses geotechnical engineering.
