Electronic Engineers Salary Report 2017

Electronic Design magazine has published its annual Salary & Career Report. You can download full report if you register there. This year according to their poll, average base salary for electrical engineers was $104,996- a bit less than it was in 2016, but higher than in 2015. What's interesting is that 70% of electronic design engineers are over 50-year old. This suggests that young people are not choosing engineering. In my personal observation, intellectually inclined young guys are choosing computer science over "boring" engineering. Among young engineers I see mostly guys from India and Far East.
