Engineers make valued business leaders
Engineers can become outstanding business leaders. Their technical training makes them effective problem solvers. They have learned to take bits of information, define the problem, break it down into small parts and develop a solution. And engineering managers have the influence and the credibility to translate engineering challenges to non-technical executive leadership.
Engineering management is a growing field
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) listed an average annual salary of $136,540 for engineering management positions. Industries hiring engineering managers include:
- Scientific research
- Electronics manufacturing
- Navigation and measurement instruments manufacturing
- Electromedical and control instruments manufacturing
