Electrical and Electronics Engineers

Little or no change in employment is expected for electrical and electronics engineers through 2024, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Although demand for electronics should increase, competition from foreign countries and a decline in manufacturing in the U.S. will tend to limit job growth for electrical and electronics engineers in the United States. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that growth will "occur largely in engineering services firms, because more companies are expected to cut costs by contracting their engineering services rather than directly employing engineers. These engineers also will be in demand to develop sophisticated consumer electronics." There will also be good opportunities for engineers in computer systems design, renewable energy, and wireless telecommunications.
