Electrical Engineering Job Outlook

The average salary for an Electrical Engineer is ~$93,000.

Many consider Electrical Engineering to be one of the more interesting fields of engineering, with jobs that involve designing components for automobiles, communication systems, electronic equipment and power grids. However, there has been little to no increase in demand for these engineers. The good news for students interested in this field is that the number of jobs for Electrical Engineering is expected to grow at 1% between 2017-2024.

There would be more job opportunities for Electrical Engineers in engineering service companies as bigger manufacturing companies are opting to reduce their costs by contracting to those electrical engineering service companies rather than directly hiring them. Such growth will be driven by rapid pace of technological innovation and development in consumer electronics, solar, semi conductors, communication technologies, robotics and electrical cars.
