Mechanical Engineering Major unemployment rate

_ Mechanical Engineering All Majors
Unemployed %7 %7
Minimum Wage %1 %4
All Others %91 %88
More: Unemployment for all Majors *** not counting stay at home parents *** not counting those currently in grad school

Are things going well in Mechanical Engineering?

Going Well %94
Not Going Well %6
More: All Majors Satisfaction ??? This is a social "life satisfaction" question. Overall, would people who graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering say that their life is going well? It could be interpreted in terms of stress, salary, long hours, future prospects, etc. *** not counting those currently in grad school

Graduates who stayed in Mechanical Engineering

Still in Field %77
Got out %23
More: All Majors Still in field ??? A high "got out" percentage can be interpreted a couple of ways -- for instance, perhaps the major is a great stepping stone to becoming a totally different career -- like a doctor. Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
