Professional Outlook

Employment of forensic science technicians is projected to grow 16 percent from 2020 to 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations.

About 2,500 openings for forensic science technicians are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.

The 2021 median annual pay for a forensic science technician was $61,930.
