Engineering and Engineers Engineers design and/or improve product and processes can make things better for people. Engineers many find job opportunities in one or more of the following areas : research data gathering and analysis design development management testing, and sales.
Career Outlook for Engineers About 37 percent of engineering jobs were found in manufacturing industries. Another 28 percent were in the professional, scientific, and technical services sector, primarily in architectural, engineering, and related services. Many engineers also worked in the construction, telecommunications, and wholesale trade industries. Data from 2006 Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor
Career Outlook for Engineers Engineering offers a rewarding and lucrative career - one in which you can use your mind to find creative solutions to the challenges facing our society. An engineering degree also opens doors to other careers. Many engineering graduates have moved into other professions such as medicine, law, and business where their engineering background has been a valuable asset.
Career Outlook for Engineers More than 1.5 million engineers work in the U.S. today, making engineering the nation's second largest profession.

What type of academic background do I need to get into engineering school? Because engineers spend much of their time solving problems, a strong engineering candidate should enrich his/her problem solving know-how by taking as many math courses as your school offers, including calculus and trigonometry if available. laboratory science courses Also take laboratory science courses such as chemistry and physics. Most engineering institutions expect you to have good grades in: - algebra (1.5 - 2 units) geometry - geometry (1 - 1.5 units) trigonometry - trigonometry (.5 unit) science - science (1 - 3 units) English - English (3 - 4 units) social studies - social studies (1 - 2 units) graphics draftingdesign Because engineers convey ideas graphically and may need to visualize products or processes in three dimensions, courses in graphics, drafting, or design are helpful as well.
