Ceramics Engineers

Outlook

Little or no change in employment is expected for materials engineers through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). There will continue to be a need for materials engineers both in traditional industries, such as aerospace and automotive manufacturing, and in industries that develop cutting-edge medical or scientific products. The USDL says that "computer modeling and simulations, in place of extensive and costly laboratory testing, are increasingly being used to project the performance of new materials. Thus, those with a background in computer modeling should have better employment opportunities." In addition, opportunities will be best for new college graduates who have completed internships or co-op programs at well-known employers while in college.
