If you’re an electrical engineer interested in making your way to the top of the pay scale, California’s apparently the place to be. As it was in the year before, the Golden State topped the list for highest paying states in the country for electrical engineers, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (Occupational Employment and Wages Study from May 2014). Let’s take a look at the rankings in descending order.

The Engineer’s Resource extrapolated available data and adjusted for inflation and offers the following 2015 estimate for various disciplines throughout all US states in US Dollars:

         SPECIALTY                  ENTRY           5 – 10 Yrs.             10-20 Yrs.              20 + Yrs.
Electrical Engineers $64,000 $94,000 $126,000 $154,000
Mechanical Engineers $62,000 $90,000 $121,000 $148,000
Civil Engineers $55,000 $81,000 $108,000 $131,000
