First Posted: 04/11/11 02:07 PM ET   Updated: 06/11/11 06:12 AM ET

If you're looking for steady work at a nice rate right out of college, we hope you're an engineering major. According to the National Association of Colleges Employers' Spring 2011 Salary Survey, students studying engineering are the most desirable to employers -- a change from their winter survey, which reported accounting majors as being most in demand.

In more salary news, those graduating in 2011 can expect an average starting salary of $50,462 -- a 5.9 percent increase from the average offer to 2010 grads.

NACE's quarterly report looks at salary information in 70 disciplines and uses data provided by college career services throughout the nation.

Below, check out the top majors for jobs and their average starting salaries.
