Engineers tend to earn in excess of the national average salary and this is expected by some reputable organizations to continue in the future.(According Bureau of Labor Statistic USA and PayScale ) In fact, Engineering degrees make up 10 of the top 17 highest paid degrees globally.
With engineering being a part of nearly all aspects of today’s modern world, innovative thinkers who can solve problems will always be in demand, regardless of the specific discipline they studied in school. Moreover, it is not uncommon for an engineer to work in multiple disciplines over the course of their professional career.
In general, demand considerations should probably be secondary in your choice of field. Instead, give preference to what you are interested in and the kind of work you want to do.
If you perform well in any of the engineering fields, you will almost certainly find yourself in high demand regardless of the discipline you choose initially
Six Engineering Fields with High Growth – According Bureau of Labor Statistic USA and PayScale
Bio Medical Engineering
Biomedical engineers have an average salary of $89,960 per year. The field has a growth rate of 27%. That’s a lot faster than the average. These experts analyze data and design solutions in the field of biology and medicine with a goal of better patient care. Many biomedical engineers work in universities, research labs, hospitals, government agencies or manufacturing offices.
Environmental engineers use principles of soil science, engineering, chemistry and biology to create solutions for environmental issues. There are many niches within the environment engineering industry, such as waste disposal, water control, or air pollution.
Environmental engineerswork in a plethora of settings, often working with planners and other engineers, all of which contributes to the field growing at a rate of 15% per year. If you choose to become an environmental engineer, you can expect to earn an average of $80,890
The growth rate of the job market for civil engineers is a very respectable 20%. Civil engineers design and construct major infrastructure projects like roads, airports, bridges, tunnels and buildings. Civil engineers tend to split their time between construction sites and their offices. The bureau of labor statistics reports an average salary of $79,340 for civil engineers.
Energy Engineering/Sustainable Engineers
A lucrative average salary of $130,280 and “only” requiring a bachelor’s degree can make a lot of engineers look twice at a career as a petroleum engineer. This field is projecting a growth rate of 26%, so you should be able to continue to find worthwhile employment if you choose this path.
Electrical and Electronics Engineers
Electrical engineers develop electrical equipment such as power systems; aircraft control systems and building wiring.
Electronics engineer manage electronic devices such as media players, communications systems and TV sets. Electrical and Electronic Engineering fields has been seen a steady growth over a period of time at 15%
Computer Network Engineers/Network Architects
Computer network Engineers also known as Network Architects, plan and construct data communication networks such as local area networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN). Average salary of a network engineer can vary from US $ 62,000 to US $ 75,000 per year.
