According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), defense and aerospace engineering employment is expected to grow at a rate of 6 percent through 2026. Growth in the sector is driven by several factors. First, aircraft are being redesigned to be more fuel efficient and generate less noise pollution. The second factor is a renewed interest in increasing military spending. Finally, private and international space exploration efforts are causing new companies to enter the space. It’s a great time to be an engineer.
Plenty of Jobs, Plenty of Competition
Though growth looks promising for engineers in defense and aerospace, competition for jobs is still fierce, and engineers need every competitive advantage, no matter how impressive their resumes may be. It is also becoming increasingly difficult to uncover new opportunities, especially in the private sector. Many jobs are not posted publicly, and it’s often who you know that matters when getting your foot in the door.
