What you can expect to experience while on the job
Employment of marine engineers and naval architects is projected to grow 12 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations. The need to design environmentally friendly ships and systems to transport energy products, such as liquefied natural gas, across the globe will help to spur employment growth for this occupation, although sometimes on ships sailing under foreign flags. Employment of marine engineers and naval architects also will be supported by the need to modify existing ships and their systems because of new emissions and pollution regulations on cargo shipping. Moreover, marine engineers who design and maintain offshore oil rigs are expected to remain in demand as companies seek and drill for oil and gas deposits in the ocean floor.Read More
