Where Are the Best Engineering Jobs in the U.S.?

Where Are the Best Engineering Jobs in the U.S.? - RF CafeEngineringJobs.com recently released a report titled "Where the Engineering Jobs Are: July 2015." The data is nearly a year old, but at least in this sluggish economy the situation does not change very rapidly, so it is likely still a good reflection of today's status. Rather than rank states by absolute number of engineering jobs, this system uses per capita engineering job number. Doing so attempts to normalize the result so that states with very large populations do not artificially dominate over states with small populations. Still, if you are looking for an engineering job, your best chance of finding one is in a state with the absolute largest number (list can be re-sorted). The top 10 states per the survey are listed below (also Pennsylvania, where I live, and the last-ranking Mississippi). Otherwise, electrical engineering jobs are the most plentiful in 27 of the 50 states. civil engineering tops the list in mining and drilling states like North Dakota, Wyoming and Alaska. Maine is tops for annual growth at 15.8%, then Michigan at 9.8%. Alaska has the dubious honor of most engineering job losses at -27.3% Interestingly, three of the top 10 states have negative engineering job growth rates.
