Chemical Engineer Job Outlook
Employment of chemical engineers is projected to grow 8 percent from 2016 to 2026, about as fast as the average for all occupations. This represents growth of about 2,500 chemical engineering positions from 2016 levels. Demand for chemical engineers’ services depends largely on demand for the products of various manufacturing industries. The ability of these engineers to stay on the forefront of new emerging technologies will sustain employment growth.
In addition, chemical engineering will continue to migrate into dynamic fields, such as nanotechnology, alternative energies, and biotechnology, and thereby help to sustain demand for engineering services in many manufacturing industries.
