This study investigates the immediate post-graduation outcomes of undergraduate students from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a focus on those from the Course 2 (Mechanical Engineering) department. Outcomes for students graduating between the years of 2006 through 2018 were analyzed, including salaries, industries, and companies for students following their graduation. The majority of students chose to either attend graduate school or work in industry immediately after receiving their undergraduate degree. Of those who chose to work, most start in roles related to their major in Computer/Engineering/Technology or in Consulting/Finance industries. The For Course 2 students, a large number also went to companies working in the Aerospace/Automotive/Energy sector. The salaries for MIT undergraduates has increased steadily over the years. This study also identified gaps in current research and knowledge and presents questions to guide future studies on post-graduation outcomes of MIT students.
