How Does Your Salary Compare with Other Engineers?

Feb. 21, 2024
Use our new comparison tool to see how region, education level and years of engineering experience may impact your salary potential.

Every year, Power & Motion conducts a survey of its audience to learn about the current state of the engineering field for those working with fluid power and electric motion control systems. Through this survey we learn about salary prospects, pain points for those working in the field as well as what aspects engineers like most about their jobs. 

Our 2023 survey showed that many within the industry believe engineering remains an important and viable career, especially with how much technology is evolving today. However, there is an engineering shortage which needs to be overcome. 

With our annual Salary & Career survey, we hope to not only get a pulse on the state of the engineering industry but also provide useful insights for our audience members who are working in it to help them understand their own careers and the potential it can offer. 

After years of collecting data from our engineering audience through this survey, we have created an interactive salary comparison dashboard that will hopefully provide even further insights to aid with career goals. 

The Salary Comparison Tool for Engineers allows users to compare their salary with others around the U.S. and see what regions or states may offer the best opportunities. It also allows comparisons of salary based on job title, length of time in the industry and level of education.  

You can find the tool at powermotiontech.com/salary-career-tool

With the salary comparison tool, engineers can see how they stack up to their peers and what, if any, further changes they may want to make to help improve their salary potential. 

We will continue to improve the capabilities of and information available from the comparison tool — if there are things you like or don't like, let us know as the Power & Motion team wants to ensure this tool works for you. 

And if you'd like to participate in future Salary & Career surveys or provide your input on the state of the engineering field, reach out at any time via email [email protected]
