Engineering Education in Kentucky

Despite Kentucky's strong agricultural base, it offers many fine engineering programs in its colleges and universities. Many students get their associate degrees at smaller two-year colleges, such as Brown Mackie College in Louisville, before finishing their schooling at a college or university, including Murray State University and Northern Kentucky University.

The University of Kentucky offers several engineering degrees, including Agricultural Engineering, Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry Engineering and more.

Outlook for Engineering Jobs in Kentucky

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) forecasts that from 2010 to 2020 in general the job growth rate for engineers will be average or slightly below normal. Although the 2012 BLS report on occupations in Kentucky did not list many engineering jobs, it does find that the West Kentucky nonmetropolitan area has the highest employment of chemical engineers for all rural areas in the United States.

That area ranks third in rural areas for employment of civil engineers. The Lexington-Fayette metropolitan area places in the top ten metropolitan areas for mean average wages for electrical engineers. With these strong employment numbers, Kentucky is one of the states that may offer higher than normal employment rates for various fields of engineering. Other strong areas of engineering in Kentucky are the mining and geological fields and the health and safety fields.
