Career Outlook

Photo of student working on the machines in the Mechanical Engineering lab.The governor of Texas has identified six industry clusters absolutely critical to the state's economy. These include advanced technologies and manufacturing, aerospace and defense, and petroleum refining and chemical products—all of which encompass mechanical engineering.

In fact, mechanical engineering is so important to the Texas economy that the state ranks No. 3 in the nation for having the highest level of employment in this field, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.  

It's also a well-paying and diverse career involving the design, development, process and creation of everything from engines and control systems for automobiles and aircraft, to the manufacture of everyday products such as fabricated metal. But it takes solid education and training to break into the field.

Outlook Highlights:

  •  MET graduates can look forward to outstanding career opportunities throughout Texas and the nation in industries ranging from world-class helicopters to offshore oil tools.
  • The Metropolitan area of Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown has one of the highest levels of employment in the nation.     
  • Opportunities will be best for individuals with an associate degree or other postsecondary training in engineering technology.

  •  Average annual wages:  $53,830 as of May 2012.. (Wages vary by location, employer, and experience.)
