The Engineering Job Market: 2014 and Beyond

engineer careerThe U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has released its projections for the engineering profession spanning through 2018. To visualize the progression of this job market, GlobalSpec has produced the infographic you see here.

Overall, the market for biomedical engineers and civil engineers seems to be trending the best, but engineering as whole is expected to grow steadily through to 2018.

Some criticisms of the BLS numbers are that automotive engineering is not represented here and that despite cries of an engineering shortage, many engineers are not seeing this play out in their marketplaces.

Would love to hear your comments here. Do you think these numbers give an accurate picture of the engineering job market?
