Industry

Clinical care, the health care industry, and the education industry are just a few of the areas in which ISU grads find work. Among ISU grads, the construction industry is a commonly chosen career field. Those with a degree from ISU make an average of approximately $54K.

Locations

The most popular destination for former ISU students is Bloomington, Ind. With a median salary of around $60K, Indianapolis, Ind. represents the highest-paid city popular among ISU grads. Living in Terre Haute after college is common among Indiana State University grads, whose love for the area is more important than the below-average median pay ($45K).

Degree Major

A graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) from ISU can rake in a whopping average $65K per year, more than any other degree from this school. A Bachelor of Science in Bachelor of Science (BS / BSc) commands less pay, and these degree-holders face median pay of $49K.

Skills

Former Sycamores with Operations Management abilities can expect to make 135 percent more than their former classmates (about $127K). ISU grads are usually competent in Project Management, and roughly one in eight alumni continue practicing this skill in their career. Other top skills include Operations Management, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft SQL Server.

Benefits and Perks

Paid vacation days are a given for nearly half of the graduates, but only two-fifths of alumni are rewarded with paid sick leave. A strong majority of graduates report contributing to a 401(k). A fair number of respondents enjoy benefits like health insurance, while more than half of respondents receive dental plans, too. Indiana State University alumni are rewarded with additional benefits, such as a casual working environment, life insurance, a company-subsidized cell phone, and 403(b).

Related Schools

Alumni of East Carolina University pick up average paychecks of $54K, which is closest to the amount made by ISU grads among similar schools. Illinois State University, Tennessee State University, and Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus are also similar to ISU.
