Due to developments in technology, the energy sector is expected to grow in the future, especially with regard to jobs that require engineering skills and other talents. According to some experts, advancements in the areas of nanoscience, nanotechnology and more will result in new opportunities.
In an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Emil Pena, the executive director of the Global Energy Safety Institute, said that different ways of extracting of fuel meant that there would be many ways for people to apply their specialities.
"There are also many new and exciting specialty areas arising in chemicals, material science, and nanoscience and nanotechnology, all of which is meaningful to exploration, production, water purification, fracturing for shale oil and gas, and liquids. These new specialty areas are very relevant to companies today," Peña told the news source.
The renewable energy sector is experiencing growth as well. A recent study from the Atlantic Wind Connection revealed that a proposed wind energy project along the coast would create as many as 70,000 jobs, The Associated Press reported.
