What is the field of engineering that will be in demand the most for the next 10 years?
I know I want to go into engineering, but I am still somewhat unsure about what field of engineering. What would be the best field of engineering to go into that has a higher job growth rate? #engineering #career
That is a great question! I don't think you can go wrong in any field. However, take a look at how the world is changing. Disruptive technology such as artificial intelligence and data security will only continue to be very important. If you like electrical or computer engineering, I can see how this major will continue to be sought by employers. Energy efficiency may and should create the need for more mechanical engineers.

Good question Yoshi! Explore environmental engineering. Google it and see what comes up. Go to environmental engineer at Indeed website put environmental engineer in Position with no location and see what jobs and companies come up. Explore what they are up to. Go to your school library and see which colleges are tops in Environmental Engineering. Trust this helps! The best! :-)
Computer systems engineering and software development has had the most demand in recent years. And I think this trend will continue into the foreseeable future. Civil Engineering is another branch that always has strong demand due to the continuous need for new public infrastructure (or replacement/upgrade) or upgrades across this Country.

All engineering field are good.
You should choose the one you find most interesting, not the one with "higher job growth rate." , cause I guarantee that if you are doing something you don't like, you are not going to care about what the growth prospects are.
