I do believe that after 5 years with at least 1 promotion, they should hit high 4K to low 5K salary per month, well excluding all bonus!!!!

I do have friend's brother working in ST engineering group, despite also a degree holder, after working in ST for 10 years, only getting around 4.1K/mth!!!
I confirm with ST engg salary. DO NOT join ST engg and waste yr time if u r fresh grad. It's a place for relax and retirement, not for good and hard and ambitious engineer. Ask around current or former emplyees and they will confirm this.

B'ground Info
1.5 yrs with a Civil & Structural engineering design firm
close to 4 yrs with a Government-owned construction firm
latest monthly salary: 4.5k + AWS

Degree in Civil Engineering, minor in management from Canada. Just finished my (part-time) MBA and waiting for the results for my last 2 modules before attending my convo in Australia.

Well, i'm not gonna pursue for Professional Engineer (P.Eng). Instead, thinking of switching to the banking/finance sector... need advice...

This <<Minor in Business>> may of great help together with 1st class honours degree to secure an interview, if you want to apply financial/bank job.
wow! thanks a lot for the advice, i will look into this further
