5 Careers of the Future You Should Know About

The 21st Century welcomed us with a ton of new developments and innovations. As we face the new and rapidly changing world we live in, it’s time for us to adapt and get a head start in careers in technology, sustainable energy, and digital media. With all the new things being made and discovered, now is the best time to look for the best careers you can start building!

So, here’s a list of promising 21st Century careers you should watch out for in the (near) future:

1. Biological Engineering

We’re pretty sure you’ve heard of Engineering by now and, true, it isn’t a new field after all. However, current technology coupled with the growing needs of humans called for newer branches of Engineering like Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Though, another branch of Engineering is of particular interest, especially with the current needs of our healthcare industry: Biological Engineering. 

Biological Engineering takes the field to another level by incorporating Life Sciences on top of other disciplines like Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics. This new branch of Engineering enables humans to alter and enhance different aspects of Biology for a specific purpose, such as the creation of designer “bugs” that can help break down plastic faster, or use different microbes to help fight viruses that can infect people.

And no, you don’t have to go elsewhere to study Biological Engineering! Mapúa University is the first and only university in the Philippines to offer the program since 2008! Click here to learn more about Mapúa University’s Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering!

2. Multimedia Arts

From the website you’re reading this article on to the social media platform you’re using almost every day, there are materials that only creatives and artists can produce. With the advent of new media (think: social media platforms and streaming services), as well as the onset of the pandemic where we are all stuck inside our homes and connected only through the internet, the need for multimedia artists continuously grows.

Multimedia Arts is a career that focuses on the creative production of materials that span across multiple mediums. Gone are the days when materials were exclusively either audio or visual. Current devices like smartphones enable the combination of audio and video, making it very easy to share and watch live streams, vlogs, music on streaming platforms — and the list goes on. 

Don’t fret, though! Finding your footing in the field of media is a lot easier at Mapúa University! Their School of Media Studies offers the Bachelor of Arts in Multimedia Arts, Bachelor of Arts in Digital Film, Bachelor of Arts in Digital Journalism, Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Media, and Bachelor of Arts in Advertising Design programs!

3. Energy Engineering

Become a prime mover in battling climate change by entering a career in Energy Engineering! Help save the planet by finding efficient and sustainable ways to develop energy, improve energy efficiency, and create renewable energy systems.

As the world faces various environmental issues, energy engineers are needed now more than ever. If this is the right career for you, Mapua University offers the Bachelor of Science in Energy Engineering, develop solutions and become a visionary leader in the sustainable energy industry.

4. Data Science 

Data Science is an interesting field where numbers and algorithms provide us a better understanding of scenarios that have happened in the past or are yet to happen. From crunching numbers to estimate the human population of a given year in the past to creating models to where and how bad the next surge in COVID-19 cases will be, Data Science can give us a clear picture of whatever we need and, thus, plan and act as necessary.

Want to enter the world of data and see where we’re headed to? Mapúa University is the top institution that offers the Bachelor of Science in Data Science program

With the creation of new technologies such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), cloud gaming, and more, game development is one of the industries that is continuously growing along with new emerging trends in the field. It is expected to become one of the most in-demand careers in the future.
