The U.S. Power and Energy Engineering Workforce Collaborative estimates that there are about 800 to 1,000 undergraduate students graduating each year with an interest in electric power engineering jobs. In addition, the U.S. enrollment for masters and doctoral degree students in power engineering are around 550. About sixty percent of graduate students are international. Electric utilities alone will require an estimated 7,000 new hires in power engineering over the next five years. After factoring in the workforce needs of other industries, the power engineering employment could easily be doubled to 14,000 over the same time frame.
