The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) estimates that there will be a normal to slow job growth rate for engineers in general. With Iowa's solid agricultural base, it is possible that agricultural engineering will experience a steady job growth due to the development of biofuel and the need for increased food production. Many states like Iowa are experiencing an growth in safety engineering jobs, especially in the medical healthcare industry.

According to a 2012 report by the BLS, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls area is in the top ten metropolitan areas in the U.S. with a high concentration of industrial engineers. When looking for jobs, applicants should consider government positions, such as the Engineering Department for the city of Waterloo.
