Alden, John D.; And Others
This special report is based on the Engineering Manpower Commission's ninth survey of a series designed to give basic salary information on engineering graduates in the United States. Salary figures were reported by employers via two questionnaires, one designed for engineering graduates in supervisory positions, and the other for those in non-supervisory positions. In all, 1,109 industrial establishments, governmental agencies, and educational institutions responded, covering 230,064 engineering graduates. Salaries are analyzed on the basis of years of experience since the baccalaureate degree. Graphic and tabular presentations show upper and lower decile, quartile and median salaries by years of experience. Twenty-three industrial groupings, three governmental levels, and educational institutions are reported separately. Composite graphs for all manufacturing and all non-manufacturing industry are provided. The report also contains (1) graphs to illustrate the effect on salaries of degree level, geographic region, and company size, and (2) facsimiles of the questionnaires. (LC)
