It seems that chemical engineers graduating with a bachelor's degree this spring are leaving other majors in the dust.
According to NACE--National Association of Colleges and Employers--ChemEs top the list with a salary of $66,886. Engineering-related majors performed well in their survey, claiming 7 of the top 10 spots. NACE's quarterly survey, available for purchase on their site, also reveals a 5.9% jump in salaries for graduates, averaging out at $50,462. Last year's payscale.com survey--blogged about here--placed ChemEs at the top of the list as well. Look for more post related to salary (and benefits) in the near future in preparation for AIChE's 2011 salary survey.
