Electrical and Electronics Engineers

Employment for electrical and electronics engineers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all careers through 2022, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Although demand for electronics should increase, competition from foreign countries will tend to limit job growth for electrical and electronics engineers in the United States. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that "growth for electrical and electronics engineers will largely occur in engineering services firms, as more companies are expected to cut costs by contracting engineering services rather than directly employing engineers." There will also be good opportunities for engineers in computer systems design and wireless telecommunications.
