Statistics indicate that the average college graduate has approximately $27,000 in student debt by the time they earn their diploma. While some career paths may initially leave little wiggle room in regards to savings and paying off that debt, according to engineers have the potential to earn large salaries from the get go. conducted a college salary survey of bachelor degree holders employed in the United States. Their study revealed that graduates with engineering majors had the highest earning potential of all recent graduates with engineering dominating the top ten job options (mathematics and consumer science jobs filled in the gaps) :

  • Petroleum Engineering: Starting Salary $98,000
  • Aerospace Engineering: Starting Salary $62,500
  • Chemical Engineering: Starting Salary: $67,500
  • Nuclear Engineering: Starting Salary: $66,800
  • Electrical Engineering (EE): $63,400
  • Computer Engineering (CE): $62,700

The long term earning potential for all the engineering careers included on the survey reaches the six-digit range.

Engineering may not be for everyone, however individuals that have exception attention to detail, are tech savvy, posses analytical abilities, the ability to communicate, the desire to learn and can work well with others may want to pursue a degree in engineering. While those skills are essential to the job, getting the proper education and earning an engineering degree is crucial to pursuing an engineering career.

Individuals who are considering pursuing a bachelor's degree in engineering should know that the process can take time; a traditional college degree typically takes four years of matriculation and effort.

Future engineers looking for inspiration now may want to buy a novelty diploma from specializes in producing high-quality novelties including fake certificates, transcripts, fake diplomas and fake degrees. Engineering students can buy a great looking reproduction diploma, frame and mount it on the wall. That fake diploma can provide a dose of motivation for earning the real McCoy.
