It's a Good Time for Engineers

Are you looking at a career in engineering? Engineering jobs are among the most in demand jobs in the nation right now.

Engineering is a field desperately seeking qualified workers. As boomer-age professionals retire, engineering industries are facing serious shortages, according to Abbie Goodman, executive director for The Engineering Center, which provides management services to professional engineering-related associations. Often taking a quieter back seat, engineering has moved front and center as one of the best careers, with dependable jobs and excellent pay.

``Firms are advertising for jobs and having trouble finding qualified candidates," Goodman said. ``We will need qualified professionals to do the work designing our water systems, school buildings, office buildings, and manufacturing facilities."

Among the most in demand are civil engineers, particularly those who have expertise in cleaning up manufacturing sites and repairing environmental damage.

It is a good time to be considering a career in engineering, as the growth in this filed is great. You can get started on an exciting career path by earning a degree in engineering.
