As machine tool specialists we are obviously interested in all areas of engineering so we thought we would take a look as what the future holds for engineering. Here are some facts that we think makes the future look bright.
Taken from different online sources here's a summary of the projection for the future:
Employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, job prospects may be best for those who stay informed regarding the most recent advances in technology.
The fields of alternative energies, remanufacturing, and nanotechnology are expected to be the most influential career opportunities for future engineers.
Prospects for mechanical engineers overall are expected to be good and best for those with training in the latest software. Such tools allow engineers and designers to take a project from the conceptual phase directly to a finished product, eliminating the need for prototypes. Engineers who have experience or training in three-dimensional printing also will have better job prospects.
