Machinery, everyone shouts and fights, everyone avoids it, and it has become a profession to persuade people to quit, is machinery really declining?

Is machinery really in decline? The salary of a mechanical engineer in the United States is $130,000, which is about the same as that of a university professor

In the United States, the median salary for a mechanical engineer with a bachelor's degree is $85,880, and after 10 years of work, the median salary is $108,700, with a special note that "engineering students have higher earning potential than graduates in most other fields."

According to the professional salary survey website in the United States, the median annual income of engineers majoring in mechanical engineering is as high as 130,300 US dollars (about 945,000 yuan) in the middle of their careers (after 10 years of work), ranking 85th out of 799 majors.

What is the concept of a mechanical engineer earning $130,000 a year? American university professors don't necessarily earn that much.

According to a report by the American Association of University Professors, in 2019-2020, the average salary of full-time faculty in public colleges and universities (except for teachers without professional titles in associate degree institutions) was $96,063, of which, the average salary of professors was $131,890, the average salary of associate professors was $93,579, the average salary of assistant professors was $81,252, the average salary of faculty members was $56,864, and the average salary of lecturers was 62. $626, and the average salary for teachers without a title is $65,074.

When it comes to American technology, we will think of Microsoft, Google, Facebook and other industry leaders in Silicon Valley, in fact, in addition to emerging industries such as computers and the Internet, the United States also has many traditional industries that also lead the world, such as SpaceX, which launched rockets. Musk claimed that SpaceX will launch rockets every two days, what shocked me was not its launch frequency, but its rocket manufacturing speed, a 70-meter-high Falcon 9 rocket weighing 549,054kg, the United States only needed two days to manufacture, behind the reflection is the strong manufacturing capacity of the United States, and behind the manufacturing capacity is the machinery, machinery has not declined, but has always been strong.

Mechanical engineers in the United States are on an equal footing with university professors, while our mechanical engineers are not even as good as a teacher.

Why are our machine tools, lithography machines and other high-end equipment always stuck in the neck? In the final analysis, it is still the underlying mechanical manufacturing ability. If the income level of mechanical engineers can also be on par with university professors, I believe that there will be a large number of outstanding talents entering the machinery industry, and our equipment manufacturing capacity and level will also be on a higher level.
