Engineering How stable of a field is Electrical Engineering?

  1. Jul 24, 2009 #1
    I've talked to some friends in the field and heard a slew of different things. I was wondering what you guys think about how much job security is offered, and I've heard that engineering is a high demand job - is this true even with the current economy?

    The engineering field depends on what the market wants and there will be layoffs when projects are complete. From what I understand, you will more then likely have to move to where the good jobs are. You could always settle for a government job even though they pay less but they provide stability and good benefits.
