Although the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) has forecasted job growth for materials engineering at a mere two percent between 2016 and 2026, this is one of the most exciting careers within the field of engineering. And, employers and positions are so varied that finding the perfect fit won’t be too challenging.
According to EngineerSalary.com, the starting salary for a materials engineering with a bachelor’s degree in the US is $55,640. Those starting with a master’s can expect to start at $61,170 – depending on work experience prior to graduate study.
But, the median salary within the field (according to the BLS) is $93,310, with those in the 90th percentile earning a salary of $148,840. And, the mean annual salary is roughly $97,050.
Ready to start looking at universities? California, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan are the states with the highest numbers of materials engineers. If you want to be one of them, you’ll want to focus your programme search in the western and midwestern states – though, as you’ll see from the recruiters below, they’re happy to receive applications from master’s students at any of the top universities.
