Alphabetical Engineering and Technology Career Outlook Research


Assignment
In this project, you will gather some comparison data relating to twenty six careers in
engineering and technology and gain appreciation of various occupations.
Using a web browser, go to the US Department of Labor's web site (www.bls.gov).
From the home page, go to Publications -> Occupational Outlook Handbook and
choose the Architecture and Engineering group.
For each of the following occupational groups, explore the detail pages and record the
degree requirements (Associate's degree, Bachelor's degree, etc.), median annual pay
(2014-2016), and job outlook 2014-20 (Growth). Review the "What They Do" tab then
rank your interest level in that area on a scale of 0-10 in the Rating column (e.g. a rating
of 1 would be the lowest, and a rating of 10 would be the highest). In the last column,
briefly list the types of skills or classes you think will aid a person pursuing each field of
study.
