Future In-Demand Engineering Fields



There are cases that a student wants to become an engineer because he or she likes to solve challenging problems or enjoys mathematics and sciences to the core. The only problem, however, is that he or she just doesn’t know which field fits well for his or her interests.

Perhaps a few deciding factors, other than one’s personal inclinations, are based on what will be the highest paying fields or the most in-demand engineering jobs in the future.

Technology has matured enough that it pretty much controls our lives in many areas. From manufacturing, consumer electronics, medicine, construction, to other industries, what governs these modernized systems is software.

It is expected that the software engineering sector will grow and evolve even more as innovation with software is endless.

As we explore more about the outer space and expand human activities outside the Earth like space tourism, there will be a higher need for aerospace engineers in the future.

Plus, the global demand for industrial drones, private aerospace like SpaceX, passenger planes (after the pandemic) and commercial helicopters between 2013 and 2031 are estimated to be 27,000 and 40,000, respectively.
