Manufacturing Production Technicians

Outlook

The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for engineering technicians, except drafters, will grow about as fast as the average for all careers through 2026. Industrial engineering technicians will have little or no change in employment in the coming years. The limited employment growth is attributed to many manufacturing industries streamlining their operations to increase efficiency while reducing costs. The manufacturing industries that are expected to have decreases in employment include computer and electronic product manufacturing, chemical manufacturing, and primary metal manufacturing.
