Industry

Professionally, the civil engineering services industry, the pulp and paper manufacturing industry, and the construction management industry are popular business areas among SUNY-ESF alumni. The majority of alumni accept jobs in the environmental consulting industry. The mechanical contractor industry is perhaps the least commonly worked industry among SUNY-ESF grads, with less than five percent of former students experienced in this area. Following graduation, SUNY-ESF students earn an average of $55K.

Gender

The number of male graduates who responded to the survey outweighs the number of women with a male-to-female ratio of more than 3 to 1. There is a sizable difference between men's post-college salaries and women's: the median for the former is $73K, but the median for the latter is only $51K.

Jobs

The most lucrative professionals among SUNY-ESF alumni are Storage Engineers; they earn a median annual salary of about $87K. Also approaching the top of the pay scale at approximately $65K and $63K, respectively, are Process Engineers and Construction Project Managers. Salaries are anything but generous for Environmental Scientists, whose earnings rank lowest on the pay scale at around $50K.

Locations

SUNY-ESF students enjoy their time in Syracuse, and just under one in three students actually choose to live and work there after graduating. Binghamton, N.Y. is another hot spot for SUNY-ESF grads, where salaries rank at the top of the pay scale (compensation averages out to $63K). On the far end of the pay scale, SUNY-ESF alumni often reside in Kingston, N.Y., which is home to the lowest pay at $51K. Neighboring New York, N.Y. is another common pick among SUNY-ESF grads, along with Rochester, N.Y.

Degree Major

A graduate with a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from SUNY-ESF can rake in a whopping average $117K per year, more than any other degree from this school. Graduates holding a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of around $51K.

Skills

Competency in Microsoft Office translates into above-average pay for former Mighty Oaks — they earn 64 percent more than their fellow graduates. Many SUNY-ESF grads have knowledge of Project Management, with around two in five alumni using this program on the clock. Competency in AutoCAD, Microsoft Excel, and Adobe Photoshop also warrants excellent remuneration.

Benefits and Perks

Just two-fifths of alumni enjoy paid vacation and merely one-third of alumni get paid sick time. A large number of survey participants report contributing to a 401(k). Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; most former students are rewarded with health insurance and a fair number of respondents report dental coverage, too. SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry graduates also take advantage of a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Median pay for East Carolina University grads is approximately $55K, making their salaries most similar to those of SUNY-ESF grads. Other schools similar to SUNY-ESF include Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus, Oakland University, and Central Michigan University.
