Engineers have a wide range of areas they can specialize in. Generally interested in math, geometry and structural design, engineers can find a career in architectural firms, development properties, CAD services, automotives and more. Engineers solve problems both graphically and mathematically. Future employment for engineers is suspected to remain strong with a possible increase as the building market rebounds. Typically private companies do not employ their own engineers, rather they will contract with a firm that specializes in project design and management.
