Job growth for engineers varies by specialty, but overall employment in engineering and architecture is expected to grow by as fast as the average through 2022. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that the most new engineering jobs will be added for civil engineers (+53,700 jobs through 2022), while employment of biomedical engineers will see much faster growth through 2022. Demand for engineers in consulting, engineering, and research and development services will contribute to growth. Employment growth will be balanced as new technology allows engineers in other countries to work remotely and for lower wages and salaries.
