  • Chemical Engineering $65,675
  • Computer Science $61,467
  • Computer Engineering $60,844
  • Electrical/Electronic Engineering $60,509

If you’re looking for finance, accounting, business and marketing degrees, you’ll need to go a bit further down on the list. (See the complete survey results here.)
