Forbes includes computer engineering on its 2017 list of masters degrees with the highest earning potential. In fact, computer engineering takes fourth place on this list with an early career salary at $86,400 and mid-career pay coming in at $129,000.
The high earning potential is certainly mirrored by high median salaries provided by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). However, they break the field of computer engineering into smaller divisions. The 2015 median salaries for the careers in these segments are promising:
And, although the forecasted job growth (between 2014 and 2024) for hardware engineers – at three percent – is lower than the average, the growth rates for systems software developers and application software developers are 13 percent and 19 percent respectively.
With impressive job growth and salaries, combined with the understanding that advanced degrees are becoming ever more crucial in the field of engineering, it’s worth taking a look at the programmes that can help you achieve career success.
While you’re at it, be sure to check out the long list of companies (which is still only a fraction of the total) recruiting engineering masters grads across American campuses. With so many industries and positions available, you might just be inspired to get those grad school applications in even sooner.
