Which specialty has the best future?

In a recent poll in this blog about the most promising specialization fields in civil engineering, the majority of the readers and visitors has chosen water and environment as best area. Structures and transportation issues seem to have a quite shiny future. On the other hand, most have considered that urban planning, construction management and the traditional generalist engineer are clearly the least attractive paths.

Indeed, the sample was not huge and it is based on personal experiences and beliefs but it shows an interesting prediction to keep in mind. All the best for the New Year.
