Engineering Grads On Top (Again)

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.
