The Future is Bright
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the number of electrical and electronics engineers will grow by 7% through 2026, particularly in engineering services firms, as more companies seek the skill set of engineers in this industry for electronic devices and systems related projects. These engineers are projected to remain in demand for designing and developing sophisticated consumer electronics.2
This job growth is represented in the overall employment outlook for Colorado. The state recently ranked first in the nation for its economy and second in the country for job growth.3 Furthermore, Denver, in particular, has been identified as one of 50 cities with the most computer-related jobs.4
