Summary

Wanted: engineering and science, maths and computer science graduates and post-graduates to fill jobs linked to an increasing demand for clean vehicles.

Key facts:

  • Although the number of motor vehicle manufacturing jobs is forecast to grow at a moderate rate to 2025, demand for clean vehicles is contributing to the creation of 213,000 new high-skilled job openings in research and development (R&D), design and senior roles in the manufacturing process.
  • Clean vehicles will also require existing workers to learn new skills in the assembly of electric motors, computing, electronic control devices and sensing equipment.
  • The majority of R&D and design jobs are expected to be in Western Europe, notably Germany. Central and Eastern European countries will experience a growth in engineering jobs. A steady supply of engineering and science, maths and computer science graduates and postgraduates will be required to fill these roles.
