It is quite important to quote equivalent salary means for Chinese, Indian and Russian engineers.

Can you advise what Dollar - Euro conversion rate you used to determine the Average European salaries? 1 Euro is now worth 1.4 dollars.

Although I work for an "engineering" company (in Canada), and most of our product is in the area of embedded comms, I have an even split between engineering and computer science grads in my group. I've found that there is no real difference between the two groups in terms of ability or creativity. Both types are also very capable in terms of understanding the H/W and the intricacies of driver level code. In terms of salary, both types are treated equally. The firmware architects in my group are comp sci types and there is an even split between engineers and comp sci types in the team lead and developer positions. I also have technologists who can run rings around an average engineer (or comp sci) type. Perhaps we need to expand the definition to include others who are more than capable of doing the work traditionally described as engineering. In our company we class all of the above as "engineers" although not all have graduated from an engineering program.

It will be interesting and informative to also add the salaries that Engineers get in Asia, especially India.

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
