Exciting careers in emerging tech predicted to be in demand!

 

World of tech

• EXCITING CAREERS IN EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES PREDICTED TO BE IN DEMAND IN 20 – 30 YEARS 

• JOBS WILL HELP ENSURE UK DEFENCE & AEROSPACE INDUSTRY CONTINUES TO LEAD THE WAY IN TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENTS 

• TOP SCIENTISTS ENCOURAGING CENTENNIALS TO CONSIDER A STEM CAREER

 

SOUTH EAST

• Over three-quarters (80%) of those in the South East aged 16-24 want more information on which skills will be in demand at the peak of their careers in the 2030s and 2040s.

• 48% of those young people in the South East worry that they aren’t getting the right training / qualifications to future proof their career.

• And 74% want to future-proof their career by becoming more familiar with emerging technologies that will likely become common in the workplace, such as AI, big data and robotics. 

 

What was once confined to the pages of science fiction is set to soon become reality. But this can only be the case if the youngest among us decide to assume the mantle and lead us into a futuristic world that was once something that could only be imagined. 

 

New research by BAE Systems reveals three-quarters of generation Z (centennials) want more information on tomorrow’s jobs and the skills they will need, and more than half are worried about the right training to future proof their career. In response, technologists at BAE Systems have shared the roles which they predict will become prominent in the coming decades and the type of training that will help to produce the next generation of scientists, technologists and engineers.

.

Examples of jobs include: 

• Systems Farmer – scientists capable of ‘growing’ mechanical parts from chemical processes

• Human e-Sources Manager – measuring employees wellbeing and cognitive state using tools such as wearable technologies

• AI Translator – tuning artificial intelligence aids to be the perfect working partner to human operators

 

Looking to the future, BAE Systems’ experts reveal the exciting careers in emerging technologies which will be in demand in the 2030s and 40s specifically in the field of AI, wearables and synthetic biology. They predict that these roles will take centre stage in the delivery of the cutting-edge technology of the future; helping to ensure the defence and aerospace industry continues to lead the way in technology advancements and is able to respond to emerging threats.

 

The job roles were shaped by technologists after research indicates that almost three in four (74%) young people (aged 16 to 24) want more direction on the right route to take to future proof their career and 70% said they wanted more information on which skills will be in demand at the peak of their working life. 

 

Research also shows:

• 68% of centennials want to future-proof their career by becoming more familiar with emerging technologies that will likely become common in the workplace, such as AI, big data and robotics

• 74% say they want more information on which skills will be in demand at the peak of their careers in the 2030s and 40s 

• 63% believe job roles will be more exciting than they were for their parents’ generation

• Nearly half of young people (47%) say they expect to work in industries which don’t yet exist 

• More than half of 16 to 24-year olds (51%) are excited about the future workplace due to opportunities such as working with robots

 

Joining us in the studio is Professor Nick Colosimo, Chief Technologist at BAE Systems who can tell us more about what the future holds for jobs in the defence, security and aerospace industries.
