The Engineering Salary Table will help you find the engineering salaries for different jobs in engineering.
This table does not consider a case where you invent something and bring it to market. That could be off the chart and out in the millions of dollars per year. Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft Corporation, did quite well as a computer engineer!
Because you are unique and have personal interests, you should pick an engineering specialty that fits you best.
Just walk through a store like Walmart or Target or Lowes and think, someone designed all those products. You could be a top product designer or design the machines that make those products!
This table is a tool for you to use that will give a good estimate of what you can make as a beginning engineer (lowest 10% column), a mid-career engineer (middle column), and also an engineering manager (top 10%).
Enter the year you plan to graduate from college into the Graduation Year Field.
If you know the Salary Growth Rate percent, enter that into the Growth Rate % Field; otherwise leave it as 2.5%.
Then choose 'Update' to recalculate the fields. You can test different Graduation Years to find out what your earnings could be that year.
Salaries for jobs other than careers in engineering can be found at College Degree Salary Tables.
