Louisiana hosts some of the most festive celebrations in the nation, especially during Mardi Gras. From the sweet notes of the Dixieland jazz in the streets of New Orleans to the deep resonant sounds of the bullfrogs in the bayous, the state offers a variety of cultures and industries.

Louisiana is one of the nation's top petroleum and natural gas producers, but also a major source of seafood, contributing approximately one-fourth of the nation's seafood. Sugar cane, rice and sweet potatoes top the state's agricultural products, making it one of the top agricultural states for these specialty crops.

According to a recent report from the Louisiana Workforce Commission, manufactoring jobs, including protrulem and coal engineers and textlie engineers, are projected to grow by 11 percent throughout Louisiana and provide employees with competitive wages.

Here are some of the larger employers in Louisiana that hire engineering professionals: Ouachita Parish Mosquito Abate, Louisiana State Univ Health, Feist-Weiller Cancer Ctr, Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, Willis-Knighton Medical Ctr, LSU Health Sciences Ctr, Hilton-New Orleans Riverside, Tulane University, WK Pierremont Health Ctr, US Post Office, University of New Orleans, Acadian Ambulance Svc, Horseshoe Casino Bossier City, Allied Health Care Inc, American Nursing Svc Inc, Lockheed Martin Manned Space, Harrah’s New Orleans Casino, L’Auberge Du Lac Casino, and GM Shreveport Assembly Plant.

Engineering Education in Louisiana

The state's extensive public college and university system offers many opportunities for engineering students. The Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College offers engineering degrees in several fields, including agriculture, nuclear and petroleum. Some students prefer private colleges, such as Loyola University New Orleans. Students interested in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering degrees can get this specialty degree at the University Of New Orleans.

Outlook for Engineering Jobs in Louisiana

Louisiana industries need a variety of engineers. Although the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts slow to normal job growth rates for engineers in general, some states may see a growth in their need for specialty engineers. Louisiana's strong energy industry benefits engineers who have Petroleum Engineering degrees, as well as degrees that cover Structural Engineering and Safety Engineering.

According to a 2012 BLS report, Louisiana is one of the top five states for employment of petroleum engineers per thousand workers, especially the Lafayette area. The New Iberia nonmetropolitan area also has high employment for petroleum engineers. The state also places first for employment of chemical engineers.
