Engineering Job Overview and Description

Engineering is a quickly growing field to work in. According to the United States Department of Labor, engineering jobs will grow a projected 3 percent and add over 67,000 jobs by 2024. You can get into this field with an Associates degree, and the payoff is more than worth the extra school time. This article will give a general overview of the engineering job description, types of engineers, salaries, education requirements, and engineering job responsibilities.

What is An Engineer?

An engineer is a person who designs, builds, and maintains various structures.

They spend a lot of time researching, applying, and transferring the data they found to various projects and studies. Engineering job responsibilities vary from field to field.

Engineering Job Overview

Engineers spend a lot of time doing research and interpreting data. They usually go over emails and memos first thing in the morning and answer those as necessary. Engineers spend a lot of time coordinating projects and talking on the phone to other members of their staff. They go to a lot of meetings and make sure to keep everyone in their group on the same page. They make lists of things they have to get done, and things they didn't manage to get done so they can get a jump start on them the next day. The engineering job overview depends largely on whether you work with the public and your specific field, but the core elements are the same.

What are the Different Types of Engineers?

What Type of Education do You Need?

Every kind of engineer in the United States needs a bachelor's degree in engineering. Your bachelor's degree program will include a lot of math and science courses, along with general engineering practices. Any engineer who works in the public sector also needs to become licensed. To become licensed, an engineer must complete an accredited program and pass a series of exams. You will complete your undergraduate degree, then move on to a two-part state licensing exam. Once you pass the first part of the exam, you'll proceed to an internship or supervised training to build experience. The final step is taking the second part of the licensing exam to become a Professional Engineer (PE). Depending on what type of engineer you want to be, you will have specific courses and exams you have to take to become licensed. A master's degree is needed to advance in some engineering fields. Jobs in engineering can all differ in education, but the certification process in the same.

What is a Typical Engineering Salary?
