Salaries of Engineering Technicians, 1969.
Alden, John D.
Contained are the procedures, results, and conclusions of a survey of the salaries of engineering technicians in the United States in 1969. A three-part questionnaire form was used on which respondents indicated the number of individuals in appropriate boxes of the salary versus experience matrix. The questionnaires were sent to the Engineering Manpower Commission's regular list of survey participants, consisting of employers in all major areas of industry, government, and higher education. The report is based on returns submitted by 700 employers covering 70,045 engineering technicians. The basic format for the salary presentations is the maturity curve in which salary appears as a function of years of experience. Some of the major findings of the survey include (1) the fact that engineering technicians as a group have received salary increases averaging between 17 and 22 percent during the period 1966-69, (2) the increases ranged from $1,600 to $1,700 annually for technicians with ten or more years of experience whereas the increases at lower levels of experience were typically around $1,200 or $1,300, (3) the median annual salary for graduate technicians started at $7,200, while that for non-graduate technicians was $5,800, and (4) the difference in salary between graduate and non-graduate technicians becomes less and less with increasing experience. Salary presentations on a regional and industry group basis are also reported. (LC)
