Salary ranges for Stanford CS and EE majors

The 2012-2013 Salary Survey completed by the Computer Forum was recently released. Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Undergraduates, Masters and PhD students offered insight into the current state of the job market in the Bay Area, Midwest and East Coast. More than 350 students were surveyed and revealed the average number of job offers received, location relocation assistance, and sum of bonuses. Most of the jobs offered were in the Bay Area, and scope of work, location, environment, benefits and company culture all played important factors in the applicant decision to accept each role.
