How to Prepare for a Career in Engineering and Architecture

According to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), most engineers and architects pursue career training through online engineering and architecture degree programs at the undergraduate level and then go on to earn advanced degrees to specialize in their field. Engineering and architecture schools offer courses in drafting principles and CAD software, mathematics, physics, computer sciences, and design. Many bachelor's degree programs in architecture take up to five years to complete. You can complete an online master's degree in engineering in as little as two years.

Engineering and Architecture Wages

Engineering and architecture careers are traditionally well-paid professions. The BLS reports the median annual wages in 2008 were $74,020 for environmental engineers, $97,400 for computer hardware engineers, and $70,320 for architects.

Engineering and Architecture Career Outlook

The BLS predicts that overall engineering employment will rise by 11 percent between 2008 and 2018. The engineering fields with the highest predicted rates of growth are in biomedicine, civil engineering, industrial engineering, and environmental engineering (a predicted 31 percent rise in jobs). Jobs for architects are predicted to rise by 16 percent during the same decade.
