学好数理化，走遍天下都不怕。
Study mathematics, physics, and chemistry well. Then no matter where you go, you will fear nothing! Ancient Chinese Proverb Source: http://www.liuxue86.com/a/1133118.html 美国留学打工 “学好数理化，走遍天下都不怕。”在美国一样适用 美国人口普查局的最新报告显示：同样是学士学位，按工作40年计算，工程专业的毕业生比教育学的毕业生多赚160万美元。真可谓是“男怕入错行，女怕嫁错郎。” 根据美国人口普查局最新发布的2011年社区调查报告，美国具有学士学位的大学毕业证全职工作的人每年中位薪资收入是64396美元，这些人既包括新毕业的大学生，也包括那也干的一辈子最高学位是学士的全职工作者。其中工程专业的薪资最高，平均每年高达91611美元，电脑与数学专业排第二位，年均80180美元，物理、化学、医学等自然科学专业薪水也不错，以80037美元排第三位。在另一个极端视觉和表演艺术专业薪水最低，平均一年只有50484美元，教育专业只有50902美元，心理学专业为55509美元，列倒数前三名，由此可以推算出来从事工程专业工作的人平均每年比从事表演艺术专业的人多挣4万美元，以一个人工作40年计算整个职业生涯收入平均相差160万美元，差距还是很惊人的。
