The Academy of Sciences Malaysia estimates that one million people are required by 2020 to be in the science and technology fields. This includes 500,000 in support and services comprising technicians, talent in the vocational field, science officers, nurses as well as information and communications technology (ICT) personnel; 470,000 implementers like engineers, doctors and architects as well as well as scientists, technologists and applied scientists; in addition to 30,000 in research.

Traditional white-collar jobs (medical, legal and financial) as well as digital or IT-related jobs, including content creators, data scientists and IT professionals will continue to stay in demand for the next decade.

    • With major infrastructure developments underway, Malaysia’s engineering excellence and talent prospects are heading towards exciting times. With 200,000 engineers needed by 2020 to pursue developed nation status, this will mean tripling nearly 70,000 registered engineers of the talent pool. Sectors to watch out for include petroleum products, electric and electrical manufacturing and metal products, which drew the bulk of approved manufacturing investments in 2016. The transport equipments sector is set to shine with RM4.8 billion injected to promote growth. Aerospace is also looking up with Malaysia’s first tier- 1 Rolls-Royce aerospace component manufacturing plant in Serendah now operating in earnest, spearheading the national aerospace development blueprint. With favourable government support for the aerospace sector plus various high-speed rail projects such as the East Coast Rail Line and the High-Speed Rail from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore kicking into gear, both transport equipment and aerospace may present new opportunities to engineering players going forward.
    • Currently, according to BEM there are 11010 Professional Engineers and 81771 Graduate Engineers in Malaysia. Malaysia needs around 275,000 and 300,000 engineers in 5 and 10 years respectively.
    • In a 2006 Report by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, Mechanical engineering is viewed as the field of engineering most highly demanded in the future with a projected increase of 24% from 5 to 10 years (from an estimated number of engineers of 58000 to 72000).
    • About 8% of the respondents indicated a demand for other engineering fields, such as biomedical, computer engineering, instrumentation and technology, marine technology, mechatronicsoftware engineering and process engineering. According to the report, the demand is highest for: Mechanical Engineers, next is ElectricalCivil, Electronic and finally Chemical.
