Here are the results of our exclusive, annual Design News Salary Survey. While salaries didn't fluctuate too much from last year, we discovered that engineers are doing a whole lot more to get to collect that paycheck.
An email survey was sent to 134,000 subscribers of Design News magazine. The study was fielded during the month of April. Results of the study were tabulated by Research Results, an independent research firm.
For a limited time, you can download the complete survey for free (a $295 value), click here to download the survey.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools.
