Early-Career Earnings

One measure we use to determine the quality of a school is to look at the average salary of doctorate graduates during the early years of their career. This is because one of the main reasons people pursue their doctor's degree is to enable themselves to find better-paying positions.

Other Factors We Consider

The metrics below are just some of the other metrics that we use to determine our rankings.

  • Major Focus - How many resources a school devotes to metallurgical engineering students as compared to other majors.
  • Major Demand - The number of metallurgical engineering students who choose to seek a doctor's degree at the school.
  • Educational Resources - How many resources are allocated to students. These resources may include educational expenditures per student, number of students per instructor, and graduation rate among other things.
  • Student Debt - How easy is it for metallurgical engineering to pay back their student loans after receiving their doctor's degree.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized metallurgical engineering related body.
