Stationary Engineers


Employment for stationary engineers is expected to show little or no change through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), as a result of declining job demand in manufacturing. Industrial and commercial development will continue, and thus more equipment will be installed and need to be operated by stationary engineers, but much of the new equipment will be automated and computerized. The greater efficiency of such controls and instrumentation will tend to reduce the demand for stationary engineers. On the other hand, the DOL reports that strong job growth is expected for stationary engineers who work in educational services and in healthcare facilities, due to more buildings being constructed to accommodate a growing population in need of these services.
