Automation Technicians with Engineering Design skills do not generally earn higher incomes from more experience in the field. The average worker who claims fewer than five years of experience earns around $51K. In contrast, however, individuals who report five to 10 years in this occupation see a much larger median of $58K. After working for 10 to 20 years, Automation Technicians with Engineering Design skills make a median salary of $64K. Automation Technicians with Engineering Design skills who have stuck around for more than two decades see earnings that are only slightly higher than those of folks who have worked for 10 to 20 years; the more senior group makes around $70K on average.
