==Depends on the type and experience== Starting salaries are pretty impressive. For the major disciplines, Electrical/Electronic, Mechanical, Chemical, and Computer, entry-level salaries range from the high 40s to the high 50s. Civil engineers command less, for some reason: figure the low 40 to 50 thousand. Experienced engineers, especially design engineers, command twice that, but the big money is earned by those who go into engineering management (or who own their own firms). In my experience (large corporations) the answer as of early 2001 was in the neighborhood of $45,000 for a degreed electrical engineer (BSEE) early in his/her career going up to twice that or a bit more for a senior engineer with some truly remakable accomplishments. These are for engineers working as part of a small group or more likely as the senior person with some leadership responsiblity for a small group (half a dozen people). Engineers are not limited to doing engineering, however. Moving into some form of management (engineering department head, sales manager, plant manager, director, or higher)lead to significantly higher earnings than one can expect when working strictly as an "engineer". Please search the web for a more current answer. Chemical engineers made the most in a recent (2006) article I saw, and software engineers were right there at the top too. • Experienced engineers 2001 Average Salary: • Federal Government ,170 • Search and navigation equipment ,020 • Aircraft and parts ,230 • Guided missiles, space vehicles, and parts ,830 • Average starting salary in 2001: • bachelor's degree candidates in aerospace engineering received starting offers averaging ,918 a year • master's degree candidates were offered ,955 • Ph.D. candidates were offered ,167
Electrical Engineer right out of college (8 years ago) was about $25/hr ($55K/year). EE with 8 years experience about $95K or $40-$50/hr. EE with 16 years experience around $160K. (Houston, TX)
