“Does Computer Science pay well?”, “Is Computer Science in demand in Singapore?”, “How do I get into Computer Science?” are frequently asked questions, as software engineer salaries increase by as much as 32% in 2021, despite the pandemic.

In this guide, we discuss and compare the salaries of fresh graduates from local universities for computer science (and related) courses from NUS, NTU, SMU, SIT and SUTD.

That is according to the latest 2021 Graduate Employment Survey (GES), jointly conducted by the National University of Singapore (NUS), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and Singapore Management University (SMU). Released on February 2022, GES questioned fresh graduates about their employment status and salary as of November 1, 2021.

Please keep in mind that the Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT), DigiPen, University of Glasgow and the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) are still conducting graduate pay surveys, and the numbers used are from 2020 GES.
