Try to take Logic Designs and or Microprocessors or Electric Circuits Analysis at any university; McMaster or Western or Ryerson or UT or Windsor or Waterloo or anywhere else and you will see how hard engineering is.

*****Artsies are lazy bums!

this point does not need argument, everyone knows the engineering curriculum is difficult, why are you making this statement?

The OP is retarded. Some people DONT want to be engineers. Some people want to be lawyers, doctors, psychologists, scientists, professors, etc. Believe it or not, some people don´t give a fuck about microprocessors or electric circuits! Hopefully you took engineering because you enjoy engineering and not because you people will think you´re cool for taking techy courses.

To each his own.

Figures are in US dollars:

Applied Psychology - Industrial/Organizational

This section presents the salaries of those respondents whose positions may be called applied psychology (e.g., personnel selection, assessment, systems or equipment design, organizational consultation, analysis or training) and whose current major field is industrial/organizational psychology. Salaries for the 176 doctoral-level respondents are described in Figure 10 and Table 10.

Of the doctoral-level respondents in this category, the largest proportions were employed in consulting firms (38%) followed by business and industry settings (33%). Six percent were self-employed, 5% were employed in a government agency, and 4% worked as independent consultants.

The overall median 11-12-month salary for doctoral-level industrial/organizational psychologists in 2003 was $105,000, based on 169 valid responses. The standard deviation ($76,630) is large for this group, indicating substantial variation around the mean of $130,059. Salaries of doctoral-level industrial/organizational psychologists are also examined by degree, age, gender, and salary change across years in the salary report by the Society for Industrial/Organizational Psychologists (SIOP) entitled, 2003 Income and Employment Survey Results For The Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (Medsker, Katkowski, and Furr, 2005).

To the OP. Some people enjoy fine arts, business, computer science, teaching, law etc. The world would be very boring if everybody was an engineer.

wow im impressed.. a psychologist can make 100K with a PHD when he´s 50 years old.

Guess what i can do the same with only an UNDERGRAD in engineering and have 4-5 years of extra earning power between 50K-65K while you are still paying for school.

And you´ll be earning 60k for the rest of your miserable life wearing your cute little hard hat. I, on the other hand, will be in my pimped-out office charging $100/hr to listen to some rich lady bitch about her problems!

wow you are so out in left field its not even funny. Most engineers top 100K easily by the end of their careers.

AND...

Just becase you have an undergrad in psychology or even a PHD in psychology doesnt make you a psychiatrist.

chasing money is a sure-fire way to waste your life... far better to pursue something you´re actually interested in doing.

Who said anything about being a psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist is a medical doctor. Meaning you go to medical school and do 7 years of residency training as a psychiatrist.

A psychologist is a person with a PhD in Psychology. Recently, psychologists in certain parts of the U.S. have been granted the authority to prescribe medication to patients, which means that you will see a huge increase in psychologist salaries given they are doing almost the same job as a psychiatrist.

What´s interesting is that getting into a PhD program in psychology is in most cases more difficult than getting accepted to medical school.

I would much rather wear a suit to work than a hard hat with grease stains.

"Sitting on a couch listening to peoples problems for $100/hr" ?????

I was only pointing out how you tried to misrepresent the job of a psychologist and warp it into psychiatry. I know what a psychiatrist is dipshit.

Even if you get your PHD you will NOT be doing the same job as a psychiatrist. It is NOT harder to get into a psyc PHD program. You will NOT perscibe medicine in the this country or any other country. And you will be lucky to make 1/2 the salary of a psychiatrist even if you have a PHD.

Engineers dont need to wear a suit to feel important.

^ Dude, you are completely ignorant. Instead of just saying random shit, why don´t you just wait until you actually know what you´re talking about?

1. How was I misrepresenting a psychologist as a psychiatrist? You apparently still don´t know what the difference is.

2. Yes, in many cases it is harder to get into a PhD program for psychology than into medical school. Generally, only about 10% of applicants into psych. PhD programs are accepted.

3. You really need to open your mind up a little bit. There are psychologists making not more than 150k but even more than 200k. It really depends on a lot of things.

Read this:

Since you probably don´t even know what the APA is, it is the largest and most prestigious psychological association in the world. Canada has one too, but they don´t publish salary reports like the APA.

And read this for some info about psychologists prescribing medication to patients:
