      Yes, chemical engineering is a well paid job. The average graduate salary is £28,415, apparently rising to £60,000… Although I’m not there yet!!

      Yes. On an average, biomedical engineers can expect decent salary. Graduate salary can range from £25,000 to £28,000 and peak salaries can go to £60,000/£70,000. Usually, if you work as a research engineer at the University you will earn little less than what you would in an Industry.

      Engineers generally earn VERY good salaries. As for me, I am still a student, so I don’t get paid all that much yet, but I can’t complain! The life of a college student is one that fits me very well, and I enjoy it. 🙂

      Pay is usually very good for engineers, especially for those who continue with their professional development after graduating from university.

      How far you want to go is all down to personal choice and many engineers earn very high salaries!

      I’m payed quite well for my job, yes – I’m not able to afford speed-boats and a mansion, but I’m able to have quite a nice life at home with enough money to spend on food and treats and holidays. Lots of money is nice, but lots of time to relax with my wife is better.
