Engineering Grads On Top (Again)

Engineering Grads On Top (Again)

According to the most recent National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), engineering graduates still earn the highest paychecks straight out of school. Engineering majors also came out on top last year.

In this year's survey, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical/communications engineers and computer engineers were four out of the top 5 in salaries. Computer science was the other high-earning major.

Industrial engineering, systems engineering and engineering technology also made the top ten.
