Subject: its not where you go to school...
Its not where you go to school that matters, its what program you take. Everyone argues about which school is more prestigious as if it even matters. A sociology major from mcgille is going to make 25 thousand salary/year and so will a nippissing sociology major. An MD from UofT is going to make the same as an MD from NOSM(a lot of money). An engineer from waterloo will make 6 figures just like an engineer from lakehead.

The average engineer´s (with experience) salary is well below six figures according to recent salary surveys.

Engineers wait to be laid off.

The laid off part is sad but true in some industries.

NEWSFLASH!!! there is a surplus of engineeers in ontario. most make between 40-60k starting. right now engineers are in demand in third world countries. if you want a high paying engineering job go to the middle east or asia.

most engineering students think they will be out building bridges, railways etc here in the GTA. when the majority of newly graduated engineers working in toronto are doing data entry sitting in cubicles.

that 40-60K starting salary actually happens to be one of the highest of any field.

based on PEO salary surveys, the average ontario engineer makes about $80,000 (median). engineers in their 40´s should expect a 6-figure salary.

i don´t know how much engineers make in third world countries, but you´re sacrificing canada´s great standard of living if you work in those countries.

by the way, you don´t have to pretend you´re someone else by replying to yourself to make a point.

According to PEO, an engineer who graduated in 2000 (6 years experience) would be making a median salary of $57,450.

^^^btw the $80,000 median salary is after like 12-15 years on the job.

York grad honestly believe that after graduating from a fine arts program, they will be making $2,000,000/year. Wait till they realize its only $20,000/year. This school needs to teach these kids some reality thinking. when reading some of their post like "It doesn´t matter what school your graduate from" I am not sure if to laugh or feel sad for them.
