Top 10 Engineering Schools With The Highest Salary Potential


No. 1 Harvey Mudd College (HMC)

And, taking the No.1 spot on PayScale's list is Harvey Mudd College (HMC) in Claremont, Calif. HMC undergrads earned average starting salaries of $66,800 and midcareer salaries of $135,000. Unlike the previously mentioned engineering programs, HMC's engineering program only offers a "general" engineering major, instead encouraging a multidisciplinary approach it claims provides a broad scope of coursework that prepares its burgeoning engineering undergrads to be adaptable in the ever-changing technological world. Tuition starts out around $44,159. Although HMC does not have a dedicated continuing education program, interested students, through its affiliation with the Claremont Colleges consortium, can access a variety of professional and continuing education courses throughout the Claremont College system.
