Career opportunities:
• Drafters

Overall employment of drafters is projected to grow 7 percent from 2016 to 2026. Employment growth will vary by specialty.
Growth in the engineering services and construction industries is expected to account for most new jobs for drafters. However, computer-aided design (CAD) and building information modeling (BIM) technologies allow engineers and architects to perform many tasks that used to be done by drafters, which is expected to temper demand for all drafters.
