Career Outlook

Photo of TSTC student practicing her skills in the Plumbing & Pipefitting lab.Predictions in Texas indicate opportunities should be very good, with plumbers and pipe engineers constituting one of the largest and highest-paid construction occupations.

This is true, in fact, throughout the United States. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics notes plumbers, pipelayers, pipefitters, and steamfitters constitute one of the largest construction occupations, holding about 555,900 jobs in the year 2008.

And the field is expected to grow faster than average, as older workers retire and construction in the U.S. picks up steam.

Outlook Highlights:

  • Designated by O*NET as “Bright Outlook” and “Green” for both Plumbers (due to large number of job openings and Green Enhanced Skills) and Pipefitters and Steamfitters.   [if available, use O*Net’s Bright Outlook and Green logo]

  • Annual median wage:  $50,360

  • Mean hourly wage:  $24.21

  • Faster than average growth (2008-2018) with a projected 175,500 job openings
