This table is compiled with the results of the annual Graduate Employment Survey(GES) AY17-18 which is administered to graduates about 6months after taking their final examinations in SUTD. 285 graduates and 76 follow-up graduates from SUTD were surveyed in Feb 2018 and the overall response rate obtained was 85.3% and 84.2% respectively. Salaries shown are on per-month basis.

1. The employment rates refer to the number of graduates employed as a proportion of graduates in the labour force (i.e. those who were working or not working but actively looking and available for work) as at February 2018 (i.e. approximately six months after completing their final examinations).
2. Overall employment includes all types of full-time, part-time, temporary and freelance employment.
3. Full-time permanent employment refers to employment of at least 35 hours a week and where the employment is not temporary. It includes those on contracts of one year or more.
4. Basic monthly salary pertains only to full-time permanently employed graduates. It comprises basic pay before deductions of the employee’s CPF contributions and personal income tax. Employer’s CPF contributions, bonuses, stock options, overtime payments, commissions, fixed allowances, other regular cash payments, lump sum payments, and payments-in-kind are excluded.
5. Gross monthly salary pertains only to full-time permanently employed graduates. It comprises the basic salary, overtime payments, commissions, fixed allowances and other regular cash payments, before deductions of the employee’s CPF contributions and personal income tax.

Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is median salary?
The median monthly salary is the salary of the ‘central’ (i.e. 50th Percentile) graduate in a set of full-time permanently employed graduates when they are arranged in a sequential order by salary. The median is a useful reference when the salary data is not evenly distributed (e.g. when the group contains graduates with exceptionally low or high salaries, especially when the number of respondents is relatively small).
2. What do the 25th and 75th percentile gross monthly salaries indicate?
If there are 100 students from that course who responded, then the 25th percentile (i.e. the lower quartile) gross monthly salary indicates that 75 graduates earn more than that salary, and the 75th percentile (i.e. the upper quartile) indicates that 25 graduates earn more than the gross monthly salary indicated.
