The Office of Assessment is pleased to announce the results of the Spring 2015 Career and Salary Survey.
The survey was administered online to 2,663 BS- and MS-level students scheduled to graduate in the Spring semester.
A total of 1,154 students completed the survey for a response rate of 44.4%. The BS-level response rate was 50.9%, while the MS-level response rate was 29.2%. The survey results are representative of the GT graduating population by gender, ethnicity, college, and citizenship.
