Which Engineering Jobs Earn More Than $110,000?

Is your engineering job in this list?


When one is choosing a career, an important consideration is the salary. The higher the salary of the job, of course, the better.

Engineering leads in this aspect. In this industry, many people enjoy lucrative pays and commanding salaries.

And yet there is still a high demand across the world. That’s because there are indeed lots of engineers, but they lack technical skills and qualifications.

In 2015, The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), considered the world’s largest professional organization for engineers, released the results of a survey regarding salaries in the engineering industry. It involved more than 12,000 of its U.S. members to record their job compensation, which includes salary and bonuses. It was found that the median was $130,000.

Listed below are the 22 engineering jobs that pay $110,000 or more according to IEEE, with their corresponding pay and salary range:
