Graduate destinations and recruitment, Chapter 10. Women in engineering statistics. Considering forecasted demand against level 3+ engineering-related apprenticeship achievements and the current/potential supply of engineering skills arising from higher education, we estimate there to be a shortfall of between 37,000 and 59,000 in meeting the annual demand for core engineering roles requiring level 3+ skills. Year after year, engineering jobs are paid the highest average starting salary.According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) engineers have a median annual wage of $91,010 and the engineering field projects to have employment growth of nearly 140,000 new jobs over the next decade. However, this is down from 23.3% in 2017. The top drivers of the skills gap reported by employers include strong competition for skilled candidates, a shortage of applicants with appropriate qualifications and a lack of awareness among young people of the educational routes into engineering occupations. Our analysis projects an annual demand for 124,000 engineers and technicians with core engineering skills across the economy, alongside an additional requirement for 79,000 “related” roles requiring a mixed application of engineering knowledge and skill alongside other skill sets. It provides a summary of the composition of the UK workforce in terms of skills levels, and the drivers and implications of skills gaps. There is, however, significant uncertainty around both supply and demand figures in the face of great change – in particular, Brexit.
