Recent Salary and Career Outcomes Data
As students graduate from the College of Engineering, we collect data regarding their post-graduation career outcomes. We use this information to assist current and future students in understanding their career options, and to help the college maintain its ABET accreditation. Our data is also provided to the Career Development Center so that they can maintain a University-wide database of career outcomes for our alumni.
Data collection on career outcomes takes place approximately 2 months before graduation until 6 months after graduation. There are multiple avenues for collecting the data, including the Career Development Center’s First Destination Survey (FDS), the College of Engineering survey, departmental surveys and exit interviews, texting and emailing students, and gathering information from LinkedIn.
The percentage of the graduating class for whom an outcome destination is known. Mathematically, this is expressed as:
(# employed + # continuing education + # still seeking employment and continuing education + # not seeking)/total graduates
Career Outcomes Rate
The number of graduates who have secured a positive post-graduation outcome. Mathematically, this is expressed as:
(# employed + # continuing education + # not seeking)/(# employed + # continuing education + # still seeking employment and continuing education + # not seeking)
