Amer­ica’s best Bach­e­lor de­grees by salary

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

At­tend­ing and grad­u­at­ing from univer­sity can never guar­an­tee you a well-paid job down the road. How­ever, some bach­e­lor de­grees are more likely than oth­ers to make you a high earner.

Take Petroleum En­gi­neer­ing for ex­am­ple. De­spite the rise of re­new­able energy, a petroleum engi­neer in the United States can still ex­pect a salary in the re­gion of $101,000 in the first five years of his or her ca­reer, ac­cord­ing to PayScale. The typ­i­cal pay level in the mid-point of a petroleum engi­neer’s ca­reer is $168,000.

Grad­u­ates in Nu­clear En­gi­neer­ing can also ex­pect lu­cra­tive salaries. Pay dur­ing the early ca­reer phase av­er­ages $68,000, with mid-ca­reer me­dian pay climb­ing to $121,000.

In­ter­est­ingly, there is only one sub­ject on the list of Amer­ica’s best bach­e­lor de­grees by salary that is not en­gi­neer­ing. The top three is rounded off by grad­u­ates in Ac­tu­ar­ial Math­e­mat­ics. They can ex­pect a pay check of about $119,000 by the mid-point of their ca­reers. (Source: Statista)
