Engineering jobs pay well. To find out just how lucrative they really are, we turned to PayScale, the creator of the world’s largest compensation database.
To find the 20 highest-paying jobs for engineering majors, PayScale first identified the most common jobs for those with a bachelor’s degree (and nothing more) who work full-time in the US.
