What type of audio engineering in what market? There's a huge variation.

See above. Best bet is be prepared to "fight". Or possibly 'fail'. Sorry to be a downer but it's a tough market, and technological advances are going to make it far harder.

Thanks!!
Learning the craftsmanship of the arts is a fantastic way to spend one's time... until it's time to pay off student debt, then it's less fantastic.

My guess is that education, particularly for younger children, will be more in demand for a longer period of time than audio engineering. Again though, it depends on the market.
