Engineering Careers

<< Back to Engineering Home

After graduation, career opportunities are available in research, development, design, construction, and the operation of large and small technical industries, government, or self-employed as a consultant.

No matter what kind of work the engineer may wish to do, there will be opportunities for employment not only in purely technical fields but also in other functions, such as general business, budgeting, rate analysis, purchasing, marketing, and industrial management. Engineers are projected to be in short supply for the next decade; consequently, job opportunities for engineering graduates appear to be bright for the near future.
