Default C+S salary range

Y1-Y4: Researcher Student= 2-4k overseas
Y5: $5k
Y6: $6k [snr engineer]
Y7: $6.5k
Y8: $7.5k
Y9: $9.5k +share option [promotion] - Associate Director
Y10: $10k+share option
Y11: $10.5k+share option
Y12: $12k+share option [promotion]
Y13: $13.5k+share option
Y14: $16.5k+share option [promotion]

A C+S engineering can be a rewarding career financially but I really have a lot of career luck and angels. Share option / company ownership is a key part of the remuneration for me. It is true about long hours, challenging tasks, high risk, stressful (when things don't work).

Unfortunately, engineering in SG is getting really bad rep with some SME paying poorly and exploiting foreign engineering talents. It is pretty depressing to read some of you are struggling with $3-5k for years with bad bosses and experience. Thought i will share my journey to add a positive data point.

The industry is changing though. There is a significant move towards digital technology and design automation - especially in the MNC and SG orgs. I have a lot of joy and pride being able to point to various buildings and tell my children that I am the designer.

Your story is heartwarming and all but we need to be realistic, C&S fresh grads are still getting around the same pay you got 14 years ago but property prices and cost of living have gone up several folds. C&S students with some common sense should start to pivot before graduating and join brighter industries, those who still have their heads in the sand will regret once they wake up to reality.

Not every job will lock you up in jail if things go wrong. s://.straitstimes.com/singapore/courts-crime/pie-viaduct-collapse-engineer-who-prepared-building-work-plans-given-86-weeks

Fella worked so hard for a phD ended up watching his career goes up in flame

Once all firms started having digital innovation it will just drive the cost down for every tenderers, which means designers will continue getting peanut salary
