NACE recently published the survey results of starting salaries for new college graduates in 2013.
Guess who leads the Salary Range? It’s engineering Majors. I would have guessed Business.
Survey Methodology: Data contained in the NACE Salary Survey are produced through a compilation of data derived from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Census Bureau, and a master data set developed by Job Search Intelligence. Data for the January 2013 Salary Survey report were retrieved in November 2012, and were compiled using a proprietary methodology created by Job Search intelligence.

Chemical and Petroleum Engineers usually top the list of Salaries in Engineering Field.
- Lowest range is for Humanities and Social Science – $29,644

Even though this data is for New college grads with Bachelors degrees, based on my experience for Masters degree starting Salaries for Engineering and Computer Science is comparable.
I have shared my personal salary during Internship and first job right after completing Masters in Dollars and Dreams Course.
