Each year, the Career and Professional Development Center at Carnegie Mellon collects information about post-graduation salaries and job destinations for students. Students graduating in 2014 with a Master of Science in Computer Science went to a number of prominent companies, including Amazon, Dropbox, and Google. They ended up highly concentrated in western states such as California, Nevada, and Hawaii. In light of School of Computer Science’s mistake in sending out approximately 800 false acceptances, below is a breakdown of graduates from the master’s program:
$125,000: The maximum starting salary received by a student that earned a master of science in computer science.
$80,000: The minimum salary received by a student that earned a master of science in computer science.
$101,833: The average salary received by students upon graduation from the master's program.
67%: The percentage of students who settled in the west after graduating from the program.
$100,000: The median salary received by students graduating with a bachelor of science from the School of Computer Science.
