Instrumentation Technicians

The employment outlook for instrumentation technicians varies by specialty. For example, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for mechanical engineering technicians will increase by 5 percent through 2022, while¬†job opportunities for industrial engineering technicians will decline by 3 percent. Medical equipment repairers, however, have a much better job outlook. The DOL reports that employment for workers in this specialty will grow by 30 percent through 2022. Opportunities will be best for graduates of postsecondary technical training programs. As technology becomes more sophisticated, employers will continue to look for technicians who are skilled in new technology and require a minimum of additional job training.
