The US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has reported a slower than average job growth forecast between 2014 and 2024 – with a rate of two percent.
But, before you step away from your dream of obtaining a chemical engineering master’s degree in the United States, it’s worth considering what that really means. According to industry experts, the growth rate doesn’t take into account the number of chemical engineers that are primed for retirement – allowing plenty of space for those beginning their careers to gain a foothold in the job market.
Looking for another good reason to consider an American chemical engineering master’s degree? How about the salary?
According to the BLS, the 2016 median pay was $98,340 annually. Now, that does include all levels of education and a variety of industry. If you want to consider the salaries of only master’s graduates, Monster.com puts the median pay at $117,000 annually.
