Prospects of Engineering and Technology Graduates. 1974-1975.
Engineers Joint Council, New York, NY. Engineering Manpower Commission.
Newly graduating engineers and technicians of the class of 1974 enjoyed the best job prospects since 1970, according to data compiled by the Engineering Manpower Commission from a survey of the nation's engineering and technical schools. The pattern of persons seeking employment and those seeking further study seem to have been changing gradually in the last three or four years. At both the bachelor's and master's level in engineering, and the two-year associate level in technology, fewer graduates were continuing their education. As usual, the Ph.D. in engineering and the bachelor in technology degree represent terminal points for practically all graduates, with only a few percent pursuing further full-time study. Among master's and doctor's degree graduates the percentage with other plans remained at fairly high levels comparable to 1973. The strong demand was reflected in higher salaries offered to new graduates. Women graduates averaged slightly higher salary offers than men. No specialties appear to have had significant placement problems in 1974, although architectural engineering, computer science, and engineering sciences were somewhat weaker than other areas.
