Career & Advancement

North’s education in engineering leads to:

  • transfer to a 4-year school for a major in engineering. Schools in Washington state with engineering departments include UW, WSU, EWU, Seattle U, Seattle Pacific, Pacific Lutheran and St. Martin’s College.
  • many career options: For electrical engineering jobs, $56,944 is the average starting salary, according to a 2008 study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers. (Mid-career salaries are actually more meaningful than starting salaries because new professionals can expect a rapid salary rise in their first few years on the job. )

For a description of a range of engineering disciplines, see the UW degree program listings:
