The typical holder of a Ph.D in engineering was paid $70,000 in 1995--more than the median salary for doctorates in major science categories. So finds a report by the National Research Council. The study profiles demographic and employment trends of doctorate-level engineers and scientists in the U.S. The median salary for all science and engineering Ph.Ds was $60,200. The top non-engineering categories were chemistry and physics/astronomy, both at $68,000. Doctorate holders working in the private for-profit sector had the highest median annual salary at $75,000. The figure for those working in educational institutions was $52,000. Engineers did well, too, in patent applications, a measure of productivity. A fourth of the engineering Ph.Ds had applied for patents; 72% got them. The application mark was surpassed only by the 31% submitted by chemistry Ph.Ds.

One way to keep a Formula One racing team moving at breakneck speed in the pit and at the test facility is to bring CAD drawings of the racing vehicleís parts down to the test facility and even out to the track.
Most of us would just as soon step on a cockroach rather than study it, but thatís just what researchers at UC Berkeley did in the pursuit of building small, nimble robots suitable for disaster-recovery and search-and-rescue missions.
