Businesses everywhere are always looking to optimize their production, which is where industrial engineers come in. They must know how to identify problems, implement solutions, and combines data analysis with knowledge of practices on the ground. Industrial engineers usually need mathematical qualifications, followed by a bachelor's degree. The average industrial engineer salary falls around $62,475 per year.
In a world of technology, software engineers are coveted. They write and test code as well as implement new software code that applications, digital platforms, and computers need to run. It's for this reason that exceptional programming skills are necessary, as is the ability to solve any software problem. The number of required software engineers is growing year on year, which is why it's one of the most critical positions that a budding engineer could evolve into. Software engineers need a bachelor's degree in software engineering, computer science or mathematics with a master's in engineering. The average salary is $100,080.
It's easy to see that electrical engineers are experts in all electrical things. They can work within many different industries and roles all over the world. From knowing how to design the electrical system of a power station to development of commercial products, an electrical engineer is one of the most employable engineers around. You need to have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, with an ABET accreditation to be fully licensed. Graduate degrees are also an option for aspiring electrical engineers. The average salary sits at $96,270 for an electrical engineer, with more than enough wiggle room for improvement.
While a chemical engineer has the potential to work in academia, many choose to branch out for commercial business purposes. They can transform materials and chemicals into products that we use today, such as plastic-based synthetic products. A chemical engineer needs to have knowledge of mathematics and science as well as a knowledge of economics. There needs to be a solid knowledge of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biology as well as a bachelor's degree to be a chemical engineer. Some positions require a master's degree to be obtained, too. The average salary is in the region of $98,340.
