Career Path Forecast
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, mechanical engineers are expected to have employment growth of 6 percent between 2008 and 2018, slower than the average for all occupations.

Mechanical engineers are involved in the production of a wide range of products, and continued efforts to improve those products will create continued demand for their services. In addition, some new job opportunities will be created through the effects of emerging technologies in biotechnology, materials science, and nanotechnology.

Additional opportunities outside of mechanical engineering will exist because the skills acquired through earning a degree in mechanical engineering often can be applied in other engineering specialties.
