Well that depends, Michael. Which Field are you specifically referring to?
Every field has a lot of money provided you are passionate about it about and show utmost dedication and hard work towards it.
Yes, Engg field has lot of money but you need to slog hard to earn your bread.Also not much state has I.T hubs so might have to relocate yourself and be prepared for an independent a swell as responsible living for yourself.
Generally speaking, the answer is yes there are a lot of jobs in this field. The reason is because engineers can do a multitude of task. As an example, Technical companies many times hire engineers for sales and marketing positions.
Having worked in this field since I graduated with my engineering degree, I would say that yes, there are lots of jobs in this field. There are a few caveats to keep in mind. You may have learned by now that there are many different types of engineering disciplines. There are some that are more traditional towards building like civil or mechanical...and there are others where the basis of the work is still building...but is more about using computer coding to build...and there are other engineering disciplines that consider parts of the medical field like bio or chemical engineering...
In terms of being able to get a job fast, there are numerous factors that can contribute to or slow down that goal. But overall, there are many good job prospects for professional candidates with technology-based expertise.
Not only are there many jobs in this field but studying in this field has the potential of building skill sets that can be used in non traditional engineering roles. If you are strong in following directions, building designs, contributing to team efforts, and many others, those types of skill sets can serve you well even if not in a traditional engineering role.
Hope you find this response useful and best of luck to you.
