Engineering Jobs Salary Distribution in Singapore

Median and salary distribution monthly Singapore Engineering

Abount These Figures: Salary Range, Median and Percentiles

The Engineering salaries in Singapore range between 4,190 SGD per month (minimum salary) to 10,057 SGD per month (maximum salary).

The median salary is 7,275 SGD per month, which means that half (50%) of people working in Engineering are earning less than 7,275 SGD while the other half are earning more than 7,275 SGD. 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 people working in Engineering are earning less than 5,159 SGD while 75% of them are earning more than 5,159 SGD. Also from the diagram, 75% of people working in Engineering are earning less than 7,973 SGD while 25% are earning more than 7,973 SGD.

What is the difference between the median and the average salary? What should you be looking at?

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 plently of room for improvement. If your wage is in between the average and median, then things can be a bit confusing. We have written a guide to explain all the different senarios. How to compare your salary
