Information technology, health informatics, energy technology, and advanced manufacturing offer plenty of opportunities for employment and career growth. You can become an engineering manager, avionics technician, environmental engineer, and even aerospace engineer. If you are looking for a well-paid job, however, petroleum engineers are in high demand. Recent grads are paid $88,700 on average. Marine and nuclear engineers are among the top paying jobs. Marine engineers maintain and build tankers, submarines, and ships while nuclear engineers are responsible for the safe functioning of nuclear power stations. Nuclear engineers are paid $62,900 annually. Women are underrepresented, however. The good news is that they hold top positions in the National Science Foundation, NASA, and elsewhere.
