Salaries of Engineers in Education: Special Report, 1980.
Sheridan, Patrick J.; Howley, Barbara Ann
Data on salaries of engineers in education in 1979-80 are presented. Salaries were reported as a function of years since graduation at the bachelor's degree level or as a function of age. Information is broken down according to six academic ranks, two contract periods, and three types of institutions: engineering schools with PhD programs, those without PhD programs, and technical schools with two-year or nonengineering curricula only. Salaries include base salary and any regular allowances that are equivalent to salary, but do not include payment for extra teaching outside of the normal academic contract, consultation fees, or other professional or personal income. Data were obtained from 291 institutions covering 11,907 engineering graduates. The survey questionnaire provided for the tabulation of salaries by academic rank and years of experience. Data for selected groups are presented in the form of plotted curves, below which are printed the data points on which they are based. The data tables also include mean salaries and the number of salaries within each column, and they list the number of salaries above $51,000 or below $14,000. Data are presented in four groupings: (1) tables of median and mean salaries for the different combinations of rank, type of institution, and months on contract; (2) salary curves for all educational institutions combined; (3) curves for engineering schools broken down by academic rank and most prevalent lengths of contract, with separate data for PhD-granting and other institutions; and (4) curves for technical schools broken down similarly. A list of participating schools, a sample questionnaire, and blank charts for personal use are appended. (SW)
