Microsoft is No. 5 most attractive employer for engineering students, research firm says

Microsoft ranks No. 5 in the list of employers most attractive to U.S. engineering students, according to a Forbes article on findings from research firm Universum.

The top-ranked ideal employer from the study of 9,770 undergraduate engineering majors? NASA. Rounding out the top 5 are Google, Boeing and Apple. Amazon ranked No. 28 and Facebook ranked No. 29.

Microsoft, by the way, ranked highly on Universum’s list of the world’s most attractive employers in 2012. It was No. 4 ideal employer for those seeking business careers and No. 3 for those seeking engineering careers. Google topped that list for both business and engineering job seekers.
