9 9 Chapter 4 A Statistical Profile of the Engineering Profession

10 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Statistical Overview How many people study engineering? What are the most common majors? What kind of job market is there for engineers? How much do engineers earn? How many women and minorities study engineering?

11 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU College Enrollment Trends of Engineering Students 1950s-1960s: 60,000-80,000 engineering students 1970s marked the lowest number of students, at 43,000 Engineering peaked in 1980s, with around 118,000 students

12 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU College Majors of Recent Engineering Students Of approximately 350,000 full-time undergrad engineering students, just less than 1/3 (124,000) were majoring in computer and electrical engineering Just over 32,000 were “undecided” !!!

13 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Degrees in Engineering Steady decline in Engineering degrees awarded between 1986 and Since then, there have been many fluctuations, but as of data of 2000, there were 63,300 engineering degrees awarded For a long time, electrical awarded the highest number of degrees, but that was eventually replaced by mechanical engineering Hooray!

14 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Job Placement Trends was the hottest year for engineering majors to find jobs As the number of engineering students declines, employers must “fight” harder to get whatever students they can get their hands on to fill vacant positions. This has led to a very promising job placement ratio

15 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Salaries of Engineers On the whole, engineers make more money than any other graduate with another degree Electrical, computer, and computer science recently have led the way, with average salaries from a Bachelor degree starting at around $52,000 A Ph.D. in computer science will earn a starting average of around $84,000

16 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Diversity in the Profession For a long time, white males dominated engineering Recently, women, foreign nationals, and various minority students have entered colleges and universities with an engineering diploma in mind

17 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Distribution of Engineers by Field of Study Electrical engineering employs the highest number of engineers, nearly 25%, numbering close to 375,000 Mechanical employs almost 250,000 Civil is the next highest “populated”, with 200,000 workers

18 “Engineering your future by Oakes et al”, Dr. Simin Nasseri, MET Department, SPSU Words of Advice from Employers Looking for graduates who possess:  Excellent communication skills  Teamwork  Leadership  Computer/Technical proficiency  Hard working attitude
