Engineering management and research salaries are on the rise, according to a new report.
The report by consulting firm Mercer, which surveyed engineering managers and research managers, found that the average salary for a domestic engineer rose 6.9% in 2016 to $96,700.
That is up from $96.70 in 2015, but down from $104,900 in 2010.
Domestic engineers also were less likely to work in areas such as product design, engineering management and development, and operations and maintenance, Mercer said.
The domestic engineer salary average rose from $84,400 in 2010 to $86,400 last year.
The biggest jump in the salary was for engineering managers.
The average salary rose from about $92,200 to $93,000.
Engineers who work in engineering management, research, and engineering management will earn an average of $107,000 next year.
The top 10% of the population earn about $106,800, the report found.
The lowest 10% earned $95,200.
“Engineering managers and researchers will continue to see their pay increase, Mercer found, citing a recent survey of engineering managers by McKinsey & Company.
Engineers with advanced degrees have also seen their pay rise, the firm found.”
The report shows that the number of domestic engineers working in the United States is rising, and the number is expected to continue to increase as more employers are looking for engineers.””
The trend of increasing salaries and the rise in technology-related jobs may help keep the domestic engineering workforce well-educated.”

“These new jobs are also bringing new opportunities for the domestic engineer to learn and gain valuable experience,” Mercer wrote.
“With the increasing number of engineers entering the field of software engineering, we are seeing that they are more motivated and interested in technology.
This trend is important for all engineers, as the technology industry will benefit from a large number of highly educated engineers,” KuzNY said.
