Employment Outlook for Engineering Managers

I am often asked questions about the salary and employment prospects for graduates from an Engineering Management program such as the one at Oklahoma State University. That is a very difficult question to answer in general. For example, oil prices are low, and companies involved exploration and production of oil and natural gas are contracting. On the other hand, the aerospace industry here in Oklahoma is experiencing a shortage of engineers.
To better answer that question IN GENERAL, I will point you to U. S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. Their Occupational Outlook shows a median pay of $132,800 per year in 2015. They also predict very strong competition for these jobs in the coming years… All the more reason to better equip yourself with an advanced degree.
