Different Types of Engineering Degrees and Job Opportunities for Engineering Graduates

Occupational Outlook Handbook government, 2010-2011, lists 17 different types of engineering degrees and job opportunities for engineering graduates.

These engineers develop solutions to technical problems of the industry by applying the principles of science and mathematics. Aerospace engineers work and often specialize in aircraft, spacecraft and rockets or commercial or military missiles. They develop new technologies for the design of systems for monitoring and control structures or. They also work with production methods. Aerospace engineers will on average employment growth over the next 10 years.

Agricultural engineers design equipment and agricultural machinery. They also work with conservation of soil and water, agricultural production and the processing and marketing of agricultural products.

Engineers must have an average or slightly better job growth.

Biomedical engineers also need training in mechanical or electrical engineering, as well as the specialized biomedical training. They develop systems and products to solve health problems. their
Work ranges from implants to medical information systems. Employment growth biomedical engineers over the next 10 years will be 72 percent, much faster than average.

Chemical engineers solve problems related to the production and use of substances and chemicals. They design processes and equipment for the manufacture of chemicals. They work with industry
the use of chemicals and the safety of workers and the environment. Civil engineers are needed to design and supervise the construction of buildings, transport and water and sewer systems. Civil engineers must be much faster than average employment growth, 24 percent in 10 years.

The hardware design engineers and test one of the hardware components. hardware engineers can expect a slow employment growth, 2% over the next decade.

Design engineers, test and supervise the production of electrical equipment. This equipment includes lighting communication systems and wiring, electric motors and power generation.
They also design the electrical and automotive systems aircraft. The job growth for computer hardware engineers to be only 4% over the next 10 years, slower than average.

Electrical engineers design and supervise the manufacture of various types of electrical equipment. electrical engineers will have employment growth of only 2% over 10 years.

Electronic engineers specialize in technologies such as global positioning systems (GPS), communication systems, control systems and portable music players. Environmental engineers develop solutions to environmental problems. Health and safety engineers use chemical, mechanical and engineering to prevent damage to property and people. Health and safety engineers with the exclusion of mining safety will average employment growth.

Industrial engineers coordinate materials, machinery, energy and people to make a product or perhaps provide a service. Industrial engineers have faster than average job growth of 14% in 10 years.

Engineers and naval architects marine design, build and maintain ships and boats, and marine equipment. marine engineers and naval architects will be slower than the average growth of 6% of employment.

Materials engineers develop materials used in the manufacture of products. Materials engineers have on the average growth of around 9%.

Mechanical Engineers research and development of tools, machines and engines. They work with machines that produce energy and machines that use energy. And they design tools that other engineers need in their work. Mechanical engineers will have employment growth of 6% over the next 10 years, slower than average.

Geological engineering and mining engineers and safety in mines with everything related to mining. They think tanks, design and build mines, and transport ore. they are
responsible for safety and environmental issues. Mining and geological engineers, including mining safety engineers, will be faster than the average growth of 15% over 10 years.

Nuclear engineers working with nuclear energy to generate power and radioactive materials used in equipment to diagnose and treat medical conditions. The employment growth for nuclear engineers to be average, 11% over 10 years.

Petroleum engineers develop drilling and recovery of oil extraction methods and gas from deposits. They work with geologists to determine drilling methods. Petroleum engineers will have employment growth of 18% over the next 10 years, faster than average employment growth.

Given the different types of engineering degrees and job opportunities for engineering graduates, job opportunities are expected to be average over the next 10 years, with some specialties see more growth than others .
