SAE survey: Mobility engineers getting younger

SAE International recently released the results of its 2016 Mobility Engineering Professionals Salary Survey that also includes an interactive online Salary Calculator. Among the survey's key findings: The average age of respondents decreased by 11 years compared with the previous survey. In 2014, the average age of engineers responding to the survey was 48, while in 2016, the average age is 37 years old.

The salary survey is free to SAE current members and available for purchase by non-members for $249. Learn more at
