Employment projections from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) indicate an overall 4.9% increase in geoscience jobs between 2019 and 2029, from 460,242 jobs in 2019 to 482,726 jobs in 2029. For comparison, the projected growth of the U.S. workforce over the same timeframe is expected to be 3.7%. While growth rates for individual geoscience occupations range between 0% and 8.4% for all but geoscience engineering managers (-1%), those occupations projected to gain the greatest number of jobs are environmental scientists (7,100 jobs), environmental science technicians (2,900 jobs), and environmental engineers (1,800 jobs).

The Mississippi Mineral Resources Institute (MMRI) and Department of Geology and Geological Engineering at Ole Miss are undertaking a geologic mapping and drilling project in Charleston, Mississippi – that’ll help identify economic resources and contribute to scientific research in the region.
Four Ole Miss students attended the national SWE conference in California last month – and three walked away with job offers. And, SWE events on campus give students the opportunity to hear from alumnae what it’s like to transition from college to the workplace. Read more…
Lance Yarbrough, assistant professor of geology and geological engineering at Ole Miss, spent much of his summer 600 feet below the Hudson River. He was working on a project to build a 2.5-mile-long bypass tunnel for the Delaware Aqueduct, which provides about half of New York City’s water. Read more…
