Occupational Overview: Mechanical Sciences
Grease or no grease, opportunities abound for graduates pursuing careers in the mechanics field. “Mechanics” are often thought to be general automotive mechanics who repair vehicles and perform maintenance. But they can also be experienced technicians who provide maintenance and repair to any type of machinery to keep it in working order. Hundreds of career schools and colleges offer training programs that fit the wide spectrum of mechanical jobs: HVAC technicians, plumbers, welders, crane operators, auto body specialists, and many more.

Given that many schools offer programs in these areas, Career College Central brings you the latest headlines impacting these fields so you can keep up on the most critical information affecting your students and graduates.

The future looks bright for anyone good with their hands and who understands machines. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for mechanics is expected to grow about as fast as the average among all occupations over the 2012-2022 decade. These jobs are expected to rise by 9 percent in that period, creating an estimated 60,400 new jobs.

Thousands of jobs await these skilled workers who will need the training to make their careers a reality. Be sure to continue to watch Career College Central for more news, research and commentary on Mechanics.
