According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Outlook Handbook, overall engineering employment is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations over the 2004-14 period. Engineers have traditionally been concentrated in slow-growing manufacturing industries, in which they will continue to be needed to design, build, test, and improve manufactured products.
However, increasing employment of engineers in faster growing service industries should generate most of the employment growth. Overall job opportunities in engineering are expected to be favorable because the number of engineering graduates should be in rough balance with the number of job openings over this period.
Organizations that employ, or have employed, JCC graduates include: Eastman Kodak Company, Hope’s Architectural Products, Inc., General Motors, Bush Industries, Cummins Engine Company, Ring Division of Producto, Pratt & Whitney, ACU-RITE, Inc., Valeo Corporation, General Electric, Weber-Knapp Corporation, MRC/SKF, IBM, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Danaher Industries, Betts Industries, and Zippo.
