Stationary Engineers

Employment for stationary engineers is expected to grow more slowly than the average for all occupations through 2022, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, as a result of declining job demand in manufacturing. Although industrial and commercial development will continue, and thus more equipment will be installed and need to be operated by stationary engineers, much of the new equipment will be automated and computerized. The greater efficiency of such controls and instrumentation will tend to reduce the demand for stationary engineers. On the other hand, the DOL reports that "faster employment growth is expected [for stationary engineers] in educational services and in healthcare facilities as more buildings are built to accommodate a growing population in need of these services."
