Top 10 Fastest Growing Engineering and Tech Jobs of the Future

Ever wondered which engineering or tech jobs are in-demand this year? Thanks to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and US News, we have an idea of the hottest gigs emerging in 2018.

Last year, we laid out the 10 most in-demand jobs and skills in engineering in 2017. With 2017’s four percent employment increase in the semiconductor field, we head into 2018 with a projected growth of seven percent overall employment increase. According to the BLS, employment is projected to increase by 11.5 million over the 2016 to 2026 decade.

Keeping up with our latest research and findings, we gathered information from reports and handbooks to give you an idea of the best in-demand engineering & tech jobs. To determine this list, experts selected jobs with the largest projected numbers of openings from 2016 to 2026 as determined by the BLS. High median salary, low employment rates, significant growth scores, and higher job prospects ratings are also considered.

Q1 2018: Semiconductor Industry News to Know

The final quarter of 2017 left us with record-breaking performance across the industry. Awestruck by exceptional results in the semiconductor industry, many awaited the promise of steady growth in 2018.  

As the new year rolls out, the sequel is just as remarkable. Surging growth continues with the advent of breakthrough technologies and commitment to innovation. With chief leaders and major tech players in the mix, we expect to see an involved approach to nurture the U.S. as a power player in the chipmaking industry. While some semiconductor leaders question means of sustainable growth, 2018 rockets ahead with continued growth and innovation.

Read on to explore the latest semiconductor news and technology trends in the first quarter of 2018.

International Women’s Day 2018: Celebrating 7 Inspiring Women in STEM

On March 8th, communities worldwide will celebrate International Women’s Day. Every year, the day of recognition celebrates the extraordinary achievements of women and brings organizations together to continue the movement for change and empowerment. The theme of 2018 is #PressForProgress, a call to advocacy, activism, and support for gender parity.

Throughout history, women have been making their mark in STEM-related fields. Iconic female pioneers such as Marie Curie, Jane Goodall, Grace Hopper, and Mae C. Jemison paved paths for future female scientists and changed the world in the name of science. Fast forward to the 21st century: even more girls and women are breaking the ceiling in the fields of math and science, and we can support their crusade for equal and diverse representation.
