Abstract: The purpose of this study is to determine the influence of different levels of engineering education on graduates’
monthly earnings. Semi-log regression was used to analyse the effects of four different levels of engineering education (namely:
vocational industrial, industrial junior college, four-year university and graduate school of engineering education) on graduates’
monthly earning compared with general high school graduates in Taiwan. Data analysed was taken from a labour utilisation survey in
Taiwan conducted in May 1999, by the Directorate-General of Budget, Accounting and Statistics (DGBAS). The data was restricted
to 7,534 respondents who were currently employed, aged 24 to 55 and not in the armed forces. These graduates had participated in
general high school, vocational industrial high school, industrial junior college, four-year university, or graduate school of
engineering education, and had completed all of the required data in the earning model. The main finding was that, compared to general
high school education, vocational industrial high school education had no significant effect on graduates’ monthly earnings. This was
not surprising as a higher monthly income is associated with a higher level of engineering related education
