Industry

Graduates of SUNY-ESF go into the landscape architectural services industry, the civil engineering services industry, and the construction management industry, not to mention a variety of other lines of work. The most highly represented industry among alumni is the environmental consulting industry. On the other end of the spectrum is the mechanical contractor industry, which attracts less than five percent of SUNY-ESF alumni. Those with a degree from SUNY-ESF make an average of $54K.

Gender

After graduation, women go on to earn an average of $50K per year compared to men, who earn around $72K.

Jobs

Among SUNY-ESF graduates, the biggest earners are Storage Engineers, who haul in $87K on average. Next on the list are Process Engineers and Construction Project Managers, bringing in about $65K and $63K, respectively. Environmental Scientists get the short end of the stick when it comes to salary; grads report making an average of approximately $44K in this job.

Locations

More often than not, SUNY-ESF grads continue living in Syracuse, N.Y. (nearly one-fourth of former students to be exact) even though the average salary here takes last place on the pay scale ($49K). Alternatively, Binghamton, N.Y. is home to some of the highest salaries — median pay is about $63K — which is an (obvious) draw for many SUNY-ESF grads. Other cities of interest among SUNY-ESF alumni include nearby Rochester, N.Y. and Kingston, 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 Engineering fare the worst in terms of compensation with an average yearly salary of $46K.

Skills

Project Management is a popular skill among SUNY-ESF alumni, with about two in five grads reporting using it on the job. Knowledge of Project Management seems to be related to bigger paychecks; in fact, skilled alumni bring in salaries that are 39 percent more than their former classmates' salaries (approximately $75K). AutoCAD, Microsoft Office, and Microsoft Excel are desirable skills as well.

Benefits and Perks

A lucky minority (about two-fifths of alumni) are fortunate enough to be compensated for vacation while just one in three grads get sick time. Benefits are rather generous for graduates of this school; most survey participants are rewarded with health insurance and a fair number of grads report dental coverage, too. Most former students report contributing to a 401(k). Other benefits that SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry alumni receive are a company-subsidized cell phone, a casual working environment, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.

Related Schools

Alumni of Middle Tennessee State University pick up average paychecks of around $54K, which is closest to the amount made by SUNY-ESF grads among similar schools. Indiana University of Pennsylvania-Main Campus, Oakland University, and Central Michigan University are also similar to SUNY-ESF.
