Earning Gap

Median Annual Earnings and Earnings Gap in Select Engineering and Computing Occupations

In all engineering and computer occupations, the median earnings of females are less than those of males. The size of the gap varies by discipline, with female biomedical engineers having the smallest earnings gap (98% of male median earnings) while women in other fields are receiving only 86% to 93% of the median earnings of their male colleagues.
