The information in this renort covers the B.S. Degree 
graduates of the College of Engineering at the University of 
Illinois, Urbana, Illinois, five years after graduation. 

We are sorry for the delay in petting the completed 
report to the graduates who furnished us with the information 
which made it possible to complete the report. There were 
many delays and circumstances conspired to make an earlier 
publication date impossible. We thank each and every one 
of the graduates for their participation and their natience. 

It is hoped that the information will be interesting to 
both the 19^7 graduates and the companies that employ them. 
Suggestions for improvement will be gratefully accepted.

SALARY COMPARISON FIGURES OF THOSE GRADUATES WHO HAVE COMPLETED AN ADVANCED DEGREE SINCE 1967 AND THOSE WHO HAVE NOT" 

The following salary comparison figures require some explanation. It must be remebered that the one hundred thirty-six 1967 
graduates who have completed an advanced degree have taken time out to complete the necessary academic work during the five 
years since their graduation in 1967. As a result, their years of employment will vary in proportion to the time required to 
complete this work. The salary figure on those graduates listed under "No Advanced Degree" represents a financial progress 
for the full five years while the salaries listed in the M.S. and Ph.D. columns may only represent financial progress of from 
one to four years less than the full five years.
