Due to the expansion of jobs in the technical fields and the increasing numbers of engineers who are retiring, the number of job openings in technology and engineering is increasing. There is a critical shortage of engineers and engineering technologists entering the field at a time when technology is reinventing itself every few years. Civil Engineering: In 2006, Civil Engineers held over 256,000 jobs. The growing population will increase demand for the design, construction, and repair of transportation systems, large building complexes, bridges, and other public structures. Electrical Engineering: In 2006, Electrical Engineers held over 153,000 jobs. Employment growth will stem from demand for advanced communications equipment and consumer and defense-related electronics products. Growth is expected to be fastest in the services industries, especially consulting firms. Mechanical Engineering: In 2006, Mechanical Engineers held over 227,000 jobs. Growth is tied to increased demand for improved machinery and machine tools and more complex industrial processes. Employment is expected to grow fastest in business and engineering services firms. All of the above occupations are non-traditional for women. In 2006, 5.8% of mechanical engineers were women, 7.7% of electrical engineers were women, and 11.9% of civil engineers were women.
