VISUAL INFORMATION COMMUNICATION 2
Figure 1:
Illustrates the annual enrollment of engineering students both in China and the
US. Retrieved from http://theconversation.com/inside-the-worlds-largest-higher-

Figure 1 shows a comparison between the number of engineering students in
China and the US from 1985 to 2013. China has experienced the most significant
increase in enrollments as it was less than a million in 1985 and went to more
than 7 million in 2013. The numbers started rising the most in the early 2000s
due to the changes in the Chinese economy that allowed more individuals to
access higher education. The numbers in the US have, however, remained
stagnant, with only little changes over the years. Since 1985, they range at 3
million, and the same number was recorded in 2013. The economic issues in the
US have not affected higher education to a great extent, like in China.
Engineering as a course and career has one through changes over the
past few years with most individuals opting to specialize in the field.
This report emphasizes some of these transformations and variations
over certain periods through visual representations.

Figure 3: Illustrates the average monthly salary for university for workers
at starting level, both tech and non-tech. Retrieved from

Figure 2 represented above
indicate the number of students
graduating each year since 2002 with
the different categories of engineering
degrees and how it varies to 2012.
Degrees in electrical and mechanical
engineering are highest each year,
followed by civil, chemical, industrial,
aerospace, and materials engineering is
the lowest. There were fewer changes
in the material, aerospace, and
industrial from 2002 to 2012.
Significant variations were seen in
chemical, civil, mechanical, and
electrical engineering degrees.
Figure 3 indicates the amount
earned by tech and non-tech personnel
in the engineering sector immediately
after graduation. The non-tech jobs
paid less as compared to the tech
categories that had the highest monthly
salaries. The marketing manager
ranked lowest while software
applications engineer and web
developer had the most top pay after
six months of graduation. These
statistics can explain the lower
graduates in non-tech industries due to
the level of complexity in such a course
and hence earning them higher.
