Several factors such as advanced technology, quest for improved productivity, and competitiveness have contributed to the increased expansion rate of engineering sector. It is estimated that the employment in various engineering sectors will grow by as much as 11% in the next decade. If you are aspiring to be an engineer, then you must know all the engineering career opportunities that lay for you in the future. Here is a brief report:
In the upcoming years, the agricultural engineers will get to pursue new agricultural spheres mainly comprising water resource management, exploration of alternative energies, high-tech applications pertaining to agricultural products, etc. The engineers in agricultural industry will get further employment opportunities including designing new agricultural equipment and streamlining the cultivations techniques.
Computer Hardware Engineering
Employment opportunities for computer hardware engineers are estimated to rise up to 9 percent by 2020. Well, this increase in employment is yet slower than the expected growing employment rate in all other engineer occupations. The reason behind this slow rate is that very less number of engineers would be required for computer hardware related demands as now the innovation is mostly induced in software.
By the year 2020, employment opportunities for civil engineers are likely to escalate up to 19 percent. As the infrastructural amenities continue to age, there would be huge demand for the civil engineers for handling different construction and restoration projects such as rebuilding bridges, upgrading the levees and dams, repairing roads, etc. The civil engineers will also be required to design and restore the large waste treatment plants.
Aerospace engineers having expertise to employ collective engineering processes and tools as well as competent in simulation, modeling and robotics are expected to explore better career opportunities. Besides, those having complete know-how of the software – Computational Fluid Dynamics meant for testing designs in typical digital environment, would have good career opportunities too.
Apart from the above-mentioned fields, there would be numerous lucrative career opportunities in fields such as nuclear engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, mechanical engineering, environmental engineering, biomedical engineering, mining and geological engineering, computer software engineering, chemical engineering, materials engineering, petroleum engineering, industrial engineering, etc.
