Top-Paid Bachelor’s Degrees

Engineering disciplines dominate the list of top-paid bachelor’s degree:  eight of the 10 most highly paid degrees, according to a new report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).

Major Average Salary Offer
Petroleum Engineering $86,220
Chemical Engineering $65,142
Mining & Mineral Engineering (incl. geological) $64,552
Computer Science $61,205
Computer Engineering $60,879
Electrical/Electronics & Communications Engineering $59,074
Mechanical Engineering $58,392
Industrial/Manufacturing Engineering $57,734
Aerospace/Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering $57,231
Information Sciences & Systems $54,038
Source: Winter 2010 Salary Survey, National Association of Colleges and Employers. Data represent offers to bachelor’s degree candidates where 10 or more offers were reported.

The average starting salary reported for bachelor’s degree graduates as a whole is $48,351.

While a variety of factors play a role in determining salaries, new graduates with degrees in the technical fields tend to benefit from their relatively low supply. There is more competition for their skills, driving up their salary offers,” says Marilyn Mackes, NACE executive director.

Candidates with technical degrees have a serious advantage in the job market!

Even stronger:

The Research Report of PricewaterhouseCoopers: “The economic benefits of a degree” found that the value of an engineering diploma is huge, as

over their lifetime people with engineering qualifications earn more than all other graduates, apart from medicine and dentistry specialists!

So if your goal in life is (1) “earning a lot of money” and (2) “making a real difference in the world“, I have only one advice: START A CAREER IN MANUFACTURING.
