A person working as a Biomedical Engineering Director in Saudi Arabia typically earns around 19,800 SAR per month. Salaries range from 9,880 SAR (lowest) to 30,600 SAR (highest).
This is the average monthly salary including housing, transport, and other benefits. Biomedical Engineering Director salaries vary drastically based on experience, skills, gender, or location. Below you will find a detailed breakdown based on many different criteria.
Biomedical Engineering Director salaries in Saudi Arabia range from 9,880 SAR per month (minimum salary) to 30,600 SAR per month (maximum salary).
The median salary is 19,800 SAR per month, which means that half (50%) of people working as Biomedical Engineering Director(s) are earning less than 19,800 SAR while the other half are earning more than 19,800 SAR. The median represents the middle salary value. Generally speaking, you would want to be on the right side of the graph with the group earning more than the median salary.
Closely related to the median are two values: the 25th and the 75th percentiles. Reading from the salary distribution diagram, 25% of Biomedical Engineering Director(s) are earning less than 13,300 SAR while 75% of them are earning more than 13,300 SAR. Also from the diagram, 75% of Biomedical Engineering Director(s) are earning less than 25,200 SAR while 25% are earning more than 25,200 SAR.
Both are indicators. If your salary is higher than both of the average and the median then you are doing very well. If your salary is lower than both, then many people are earning more than you and there is plenty of room for improvement. If your wage is between the average and the median, then things can be a bit complicated. We wrote a guide to explain all about the different scenarios. How to compare your salary

We all know that higher education equals a bigger salary, but how much more money can a degree add to your income? We broke down Biomedical Engineering Director salaries by education level in order to make a comparison.
When the education level is Bachelor's Degree, the average salary of a Biomedical Engineering Director is 15,300 SAR per month.
While someone with a Master's Degree gets a salary of 21,100 SAR per month, 38% more than someone having a Bachelor's Degree degree.
A PhD gets its holder an average salary of 27,700 SAR per month, 31% more than someone with a Master's Degree.
A Master's degree program or any post-graduate program in Saudi Arabia costs anywhere from 84,200 Saudi Riyal(s) to 253,000 Saudi Riyal(s) and lasts approximately two years. That is quite an investment.
You can't really expect any salary increases during the study period, assuming you already have a job. In most cases, a salary review is conducted once education is completed and the degree has been attained.
Many people pursue higher education as a tactic to switch into a higher paying job. The numbers seem to support the thoery. The average increase in compensation while changing jobs is approximately 10% more than the customary salary increment.
If you can afford the costs of higher education, the return on investment is definitely worth it. You should be able to recover the costs in roughly a year or so.
Though gender should not have an effect on pay, in reality, it does. So who gets paid more: men or women? Male Biomedical Engineering Director employees in Saudi Arabia earn 8% more than their female counterparts.
Where can you get paid more, working for a private company or for the government? Public sector Biomedical Engineering Director employees in Saudi Arabia earn 7% more than their private sector counterparts.

The hourly wage is the salary paid in one worked hour. Usually jobs are classified into two categories: salaried jobs and hourly jobs. Salaried jobs pay a fix amount regardless of the hours worked. Hourly jobs pay per worked hour. To convert salary into hourly wage the above formula is used (assuming 5 working days in a week and 8 working hours per day which is the standard for most jobs). The hourly wage calculation may differ slightly depending on the worked hours per week and the annual vacation allowance. The figures mentioned above are good approximations and are considered to be the standard. One major difference between salaried employees and hourly paid employees is overtime eligibility. Salaried employees are usually exempt from overtime as opposed to hourly paid staff.
