Starting salaries for Mines graduates tops among nation's public institutions
GOLDEN, Colo., July 28, 2011 – Colorado School of Mines is once again the top-ranked public university in the nation for starting salaries of graduates with bachelor’s degrees according to PayScale’s 2011-2012 College Salary Report. Mines graduates posted a median starting salary of $63,400 and a mid-career salary of $106,000.
Mines also ranked sixth among the report’s compilation of all colleges and universities (including private institutions) for starting salary, and 20th for midcareer salary.
“The average salary of new graduates from Mines is a real indication of the technical and professional value they bring to many corporations. Companies, nationally and worldwide, consider Mines students and graduates to be at the top of their field, explaining why Mines is on the top 10 university recruiting list for many companies,” said Jean Manning-Clark, Colorado School of Mines Career Center director, employee relations.
“Campus recruiting activities are so strong this year. The increase in the number of employers already seeking to recruit Mines graduates this fall is amazing -- the Mines Fall 2011 Career Fair sold out quickly and quite a few companies are on the wait list. The Career Center staff is preparing for thousands of on-campus interviews within the first few months of the semester,” Manning-Clark said.
