Based on data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics: Employment of engineers is projected to grow 8% from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. This growth is expected to be driven by the need for engineers to design, develop, and maintain new technologies and infrastructure. And about 1.8 million people were employed as engineers in the United States in May 2021. The largest employers of engineers were engineering services firms, manufacturing companies, and the federal government.
• Most engineers work full time. In 2021, about 94% of engineers worked full time, compared to 74% of all workers.
• In 2021, about 26% of engineers worked in research and development, compared to 4% of all workers.
• Skills gap: The engineering landscape is constantly changing, and employers need to find candidates with the skills and knowledge to keep up with the latest trends. This can be a challenge, as many candidates may not have the necessary experience or qualifications.
• Competition: The engineering industry is highly competitive, and this extends to recruiting and hiring. Top talent is often in high demand, and companies need to offer competitive salaries and benefits in order to attract and retain the best employees.
• Diversity: The engineering industry has historically been dominated by white men. Employers are increasingly looking to diversify their workforce, but this can be a challenge, as there is a shortage of qualified women and minority engineers.
