"For a Few Dollars More"

By and large, engineers are a non-criminal group. They are not moved so much by money. Personal necessity is weighed with personal interest - then dollars become a deciding factor.

We hear things like the ones who fail end up teaching (others how to fail), etc.

We have poor definitions for failure and success so we use money.

Maybe the "best" law schools turn out the most public defenders.

Interesting facts, though.

The two schools are tied for 5th at 130k.  It appears they are comparing by the higher number without regard to the lower number, which probably could have been used to break the tie.

Interesting report, thanks, Chris.  There are two number five schools and no number six.

It is particularly interesting that salaries don't vary much from school to school.  The data seem to say, "It doesn't matter too much where you go to school."

To dig deeper, it would be helpful to adjust the reported salaries for geographic location, and break them down by major.

Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
This is the story of a robotic ball clever enough to inspire the team behind the new Star Wars film.
