Such data would be valuable for prospective students.  I don't know how you'd get such data.  Schools definitely won't give you accurate information.  And this data just can't be right.  How is it possible that a student graduating from the #1 school makes $22,000 more than one graduating from the #10 school?  It doesn't make sense.

What I thought was informative was that there isn't any one good source for the information. By the way, a similar story was incredably popular on our sister site Design News, a site aimed at mostly mechanical engineers. Maybe this is a tougher crowd. I don't doubt that, but I also wonder would this information, if it could be gathered somewhat accurately, be of any value to students choosing a program. I doubt engineering students pick the job solely for the salary. Engineering is a hard profession unless you like it to begin with.

Reminds me of "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" or "10 Best Places to Live" of Money magazine. Waste of time.

This data is not terribly enlightening.  Does it include grad students?  Students who can't find  engineering jobs?  I'm a bit dubious of the $89k figure.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
