Our reliance on fossil fuels is set to decrease dramatically in the next couple of decades. The State of California, for instance, recently announced plans to ban the sale of new gas-powered vehicles by the year 2035 ― just 15 years from now ― forcing us all to go electric. While this obviously means huge changes for the industry, it also means that there’s never been a better time to consider a career in the field of electrical engineering.
Professionals who design, build, and maintain complex circuits are called electrical engineers. And they’re going to play a pivotal role in our not so distant future. As of right now, professionals earn annual salaries that start in the $90K range and, with experience, go up from there. When you consider that the demand for these professionals is expected to skyrocket in the coming years, then it’s only reasonable to assume that those salaries will increase by just as much.
