    While we usually look at the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) for engineering salaries, the BLS has not released updated stats for more than two years. So, we turned to Salary.com.

    We did include BLS growth stats that show engineering job totals and projections through the middle of the decade. For the engineering profession as a whole, BLS projects 194,300 new jobs during the coming 10 years. The total number of current engineering jobs is 1,681,000.
