Amad’s Answer

There are dozens of different classifications of "Engineer". It depends on what specific field you would like to go into and what type of specification you want to master. Once you reach the higher career levels, your pay is going to depend on your negotiation skills. In addition, compensation isn't limited to gross pay. It is stock options, PTO, benefits, etc. On top of all this, region matters. 200k in Kentucky and 200k in California are two completely different things. So the answer to your question is pretty much "it depends". You'll need to be more specific.

Jackson’s Answer

Henry: If you enjoy tinkering with computer and software, I would recommend you consider in the field of Cybersecurity.
Cybersecurity is one of the hottest technology field at this time. It's common for college grads to receive $100K annual salary offers right out of college.
According to cyerseeek.com, there are over 500K job openings in the U.S. today looking for cybersecurity professionals. Best part is that you don't even need a college degree to start in the field of cybersecurity. However, just like any professionals, the most knowledge you have with the discipline, the more valuable you are.

Jackson recommends the following next steps:
