The Office of Assessment is pleased to announce that the Career and Salary Survey now includes data for BS and MS graduates from Spring 2016. The survey was administered online to 2,865 BS- and MS-level students who were scheduled to graduate in Spring 2016. PhD data for AY 2016 is scheduled to be added later this summer.
A total of 1,450 students completed the survey, for a response rate of 50.6%. The BS response rate was 60.2%, while the MS response rate was 31.1%. The survey results are representative of the GT graduating population for each degree level by sex, college, ethnicity, and citizenship.
Highlights from the Spring 2016 Career and Salary Survey:
- The percentage of job-seeking Georgia Tech BS recipients who reported having a job at graduation was 78.7%, up from a low of 67.2% in 2012.
- Placement among job-seeking Master’s degree recipients has remained relatively stable for the past three years, with placement at 72.5% in 2016.
- Median reported salaries for Georgia Tech graduates have steadily increased to $68,000 for BS recipients in Spring 2016 from $62,000 in Spring 2012.
- For MS recipients, median salaries have remained stable, though they are up slightly at $90,000 for Spring 2016 Graduates.
- Of the Georgia Tech BS graduates, 22.9% plan to pursue further education.
- Over 86% of GT students who responded to the Career and Salary survey remained certain they would select Georgia Tech again to attend college. Approximately 85% of GT student respondents would recommend their program to future students who wanted to major in their field.
