Spring 2015 Career and Salary Survey

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.

Among the highlights from the Spring 2015 survey:

  • The percentage of job-seeking Georgia Tech BS recipients who reported employment at graduation was 73.7%, up from 63.4% in Spring 2011.
  • Placement among job-seeking Master’s degree recipients has remained stable for the past three years; 70.2% in Spring 2015.
  • Median reported salaries for Georgia Tech graduates have increased to $65,000 for BS recipients in Spring 2015 compared to $60,350 in Spring 2011.
  • Median salary for MS recipients was $80,000 compared to $75,000 in Spring 2011.
  • Of the Georgia Tech BS graduates, 19% plan to pursue further education, down from 25% pursuing further education in Spring 2011.
  • Over 85% of responding students would “probably” or “definitely” select Georgia Tech again, and 83% would recommend their programs to future students who want to major in their fields.
