Career Path Forecast
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, materials engineers are expected to have employment growth of 9 percent between 2008 and 2018, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Growth should result from increased use of composite and other nontraditional materials developed through biotechnology and nanotechnology research.

Growth should be strong for materials engineers working on nanomaterials and biomaterials.

As manufacturing firms contract for their materials engineering needs, most employment growth is expected in professional, scientific, and technical services industries.
