As an inspector in nyc I can tell you that there is a big demand for qualified engineers.And the pay is very good. Here in nyc it is getting hard to find people who want to enter this trade and get their license. The trade is heading more toward cogeneration plants and automated buildings. This is where the need for operators is heading. Coal plants here in the city are now like steam engines and thing of the past. Combined cycle power plants are in and operators are in demand. But extensive training and experience is coming up short as the younger generation dont want to get their hands dirty and dont want to put the time in to study and pass the license exam.
Hope this answers your question.
: Hi there. Greetings from Vancouver B.C. prospective stationary engineering and power & process student trying to research if this would be a good career move choice or not. Some have told me that it's a dying industry, while others have said that there was a demand for this due to an aging workforce. What do you think? Is anybody having fun out there yet? (Up here in Canada it's referred to as Power Engineering when they work with steam.) Thanks for your help. Will & family.
