Materials Engineers

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that job growth for materials engineers will be slower than the average for all careers through 2024. Materials engineers should continue to find jobs, however, due to their key role in designing and testing materials used in manufacturing. Aerospace manufacturing and industries that focus on new medical or scientific products will need materials engineers to design new uses for materials. Research and development companies will also need materials engineers to develop materials technology for consumer products, industrial processes, and medicine. The field of materials engineering is small, and the number of students pursuing study in this discipline is low. This should create opportunities for aspiring materials engineers, especially in areas such as biomedical engineering.
