The Department of Labor's
Occupational Outlook Handbook
states,"Employment of mechanical engineering technicians is
projected to grow 2 percent from 2014 to 2024, slower than the average for all occupations. Nevertheless,
there should be opportunities for those who can master new software and technology, as well as traditional
manual skills." (Visited 2016).
