This question already has an answer here:
I received a BS in Biology/Environment (Non-Engineering) and MS in Civil & Environmental Engineering. My experiences have been consecutively more specific and I'm completely competent with my specialization.
My question is then- where should my salary be for an entry-level Engineering 1 position? Should I be compensated (a) the same level as an undergrad in Civil & Env. Eng. or (b) more because my science undergrad degree is relevant and I have an advanced degree?
I received 2 job offers last week, both of which are just below the median value for an entry-level Env. Eng. 1 position. I cannot find statistics that account for my educational background (non-engineering undergrad and engineering masters) even though I know it happens.
