What is the outlook for aircraft engineering jobs?

The demand for aircraft engineering jobs is expected to continue to grow. US Department of Labor reports of 2009 indicate that aerospace and aircraft engineering jobs are projected to grow at a rate of between 2 and 12 percent for all careers in that industry between the years 2008 and 2018. This growth is due in part to a global business presence that necessitates the development of aircraft that are more energy efficient, cheaper to build and faster. Aircraft engineers will continue to be at the forefront of new technology, and therefore, jobs will be plentiful going into the next decade.
