Summary
Since the late 1950s, the engineering job market in the United States has been fraught with fears of a shortage of engineering skill and talent. This text brings clarity to issues of supply and demand in this important market. Following a general overview of engineering-labour market trends, it examines the educational pathways of undergraduate engineers and their entry into the labour market, the impact of engineers working in firms on productivity and innovation, and different dimensions of the changing engineering labour market, from licensing to changes in demand and guest worker programmes.
