Job prospects for engineers over the next 10 years are moderately positive. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics , which recently released updated stats, most engineering disciplines will experience growth over the coming decade.
Professions such as biomedical engineering will see stellar growth of 23% over the next 10 years, while nuclear engineering will actually see a 4% decline in jobs over the coming decade.
The engineering profession is expected to follow the range of average job growth -- about 5% -- through 2024. Engineers, however, are expected to earn more, beginning right after graduation.
