Quality Control Engineers and Technicians


The employment outlook for quality control engineers and technicians depends, to some degree, on general economic conditions. Through 2024, the U.S. Department of Labor projects a 4 percent decline in employment for the field of industrial production management, which includes quality control engineers and technicians. Factors contributing to this decline are better technology, which has increased productivity, and a greater reliance on manufacturing workers to constantly monitor the quality of their own work. However, the roles of the quality control engineer and technicians are vital to production and cannot be eliminated. Thus, there will still be new jobs to replace people retiring from or otherwise leaving this field.
