Top 10 Highest Earning Bachelor’s Degrees

There is a lot students can do with bachelor’s degrees but some do not want to put in the time it takes to earn the degrees that have the highest payout. The degrees that do have the highest payout with four years of college are all in engineering which is a lot of work. A friend of mine is an engineer and he said he had no life for four years but it was well worth it in the end. The following will inform you of the top ten highest paying bachelor’s positions which all happen to be in engineering.

1. Petroleum Engineering Degree  has an average starting salary of $86,220
2. Chemical Engineering Degree has an average starting salary of $65,142
3. Mining and Mineral Engineering Degree has an average starting salary of $64,552
4. Computer Science Degree has an average starting salary of $61,205
5. Computer Engineering Degree has a starting salary of $60,879
6. Electrical/Electronics and Communications Engineering Degree has a starting salary of $59,074
7. Mechanical Engineering Degree has an average starting salary of $58,392
8. Industrial/Manufacturing Engineering Degree has a starting salary of $57,734
9. Aerospace/Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering Degree has a starting salary of $57,231
10. Information Sciences and Systems Degree has an average starting salary of $54,038

These degrees are all in engineering but they are highest paying careers for an undergraduate degree. The programs required to graduate with an engineering degree are very grueling and take a lot of time and effort to complete. There is a lot to understand and unlike many degrees, what is learned in these courses is necessary for the actual jobs. It is extremely important that you give these programs your all as it is not uncommon for students to actually fail out of these programs because the work is just too much.

They receive the highest pay because of what it takes to earn any one of these degrees. The starting pay for all ten careers is pretty nice for just starting out. The further you go in these careers the more you will be able to make so no matter how much work it takes you will receive a nice paycheck every two weeks. Remember to give it your all!
