Agricultural Engineer Job Outlook
Employment of agricultural engineers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. This growth represents an increase of about 200 positions from 2016 levels. The need to increase the efficiency of agricultural production systems and to reduce environmental damage should maintain demand for these workers.
New, more efficient designs for traditional agricultural engineering projects such as irrigation, storage, and worker safety systems will also maintain demand for these workers. Growing populations and stronger global competition will continue to pressure farmers to find more efficient means of production, and toward this end, they will need agricultural engineers.
