Missouri S&T graduates make the big bucks right out of college — more than almost any other graduates in the Midwest.


PayScale Inc., a Seattle-based research firm, released its 2011-12 College Salary Report in July. The report ranks Missouri S&T second among Midwestern public and private universities in terms of starting median salary for graduates. The median starting salary for S&T alumni is $58,600. The figure is second only to that of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

The report also ranked Missouri S&T second in the nation for starting salaries among public universities and 15th in the nation among all universities, public and private.

PayScale bases its annual report on surveys with employees who possess only bachelor’s degrees. It includes 999 campuses, most of which have more than 5,000 undergraduate students.
