Yes, you're right, Debera, so hopefully the information is accurate so the best and the brightest can make the best decisions about their future.

Ekizebeth, I totally agree with you that this information will be very helpfull for students chossing which university to enter . It will also help them calculate the returns they expect to get back on the amount invested in University .

Are they really telling the truth?????

Amazing high salaries are claimed. But what else would the school possibly say if they want to attract engineering students. 

But it seems to me that there is a bit of inflation going on. Of course, in other parts of the country not so depressed as the greater detroit area incomes may be a bit higher. But just like all of those salary surveys, if the resulkts are truthful than I am depressed. 

I would suggest only accepting claimes backed up with a copy of a 1099 form.

I never heard of Harvey Mudd, except as the creator of android women on an old Star Trek episode: that was an incentive for a teenage boy to become an engineer!

Ha!  I used to have one of those shirts.  A woman came up to me in the grocery store after seeing my shirt and began carrying on about what a wonderful school MIT was.  I didn't have the heart to tell her she'd missed the whole point of the shirt!

WTGW?  THWG!

Not in all cases.  For my school (Georgia Tech) the picture is ... well, I'm not sure where that picture was taken.  Probably somewhere in the northern part of the campus where a bunch of new buildings have been put up, long, long after I graduated.  If they'd wanted to use an iconic (and more appropriate picture) they would have used a photo of the Tech tower.  The picture they did use looks like some generic high-tech office park.

If you follow a sliding scale of everything 4x, you're right.  But much to our collective chagrin, salaries have never paralleled inflation. Altho' according to these top 15 universities, they pretty-much do! Pity the non-engineers at lesser schools to get the big salaries ,,,,,

On another note, I had expected the So.CA housing marketing to be staggering for my son (to your point, of ~$700k) but the housing crash of '08 has hit the area, and he is looking at 3 bedroom ranches in the $150's.  I was very (happily) surprised, for his opportunity !

Where is Purdue?

I'm suprised that Purdue University is not included in the list....perhaps the Boilermakers, despite being perennially listed in the top 10 ranked engineering schools, are producing more philanthropic engineers willing to improve society for less? Or, perhaps Purdue needs to include also some salary negotiation guidance to new grads! More likely, I think, is that Purdue graduates are too busy with their engineering work to respond to such frivolous surveys!   ;)

Yes Uncreative and also combination of the percentage of employment and salary will give a better understanding.

Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.

Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
