The National Association of Colleges and Employers has released its latest survey on the majors that yield the highest starting salaries, Eight of the top 10 are in engineering, with the non-engineering majors being computer science and information sciences. Topping the list is petroleum engineering at $86,220, followed by chemical engineering at $65,142. That places those new bachelor's degrees holders above the average salaries of many associate professors in the humanities.
