The longer an engineer works in the profession, the higher their salary. This is particularly true of engineering, as shown in the current salary test conducted by the online portal ingenieurkarriere.de. While one to two years of professional experience bring an annual gross salary of approximately €46,600; this increases by around €10,000 after six to eleven years.
After another five years, this salary increases to an average of €62,600 and, with professional experience of 16–20 years, subsequently rises to around €68,000. Responsibility within a job also often grows over time, which also has an impact on earnings. For example, an engineer with project management responsibilities can earn about €56,900 in this position after three to five years. Engineers who take on personnel responsibilities and become team or group leaders over the course of their career receive an average of €57,500 after the same period of time.
