The U.S. Department of Labor reports that Engineering Managers represent the 10th highest paying profession, or the 3rd highest if medical professions are excluded from the list (behind Psychiatrist and CEO).
By 2018, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that there will be approximately 195,000 engineering manager jobs in the U.S. alone.
