Which university degrees pay the most?

Stuff.co.nz today reported that "school-leavers aiming for a well-paid job after university should study engineering or health sciences, a new government report suggests.  Meanwhile, those less concerned about salary should consider tourism, performing arts, visual arts, and graphic and design arts. "

"The other lesson is that sticking at your studies can pay off - graduates with a doctorate can expect to pick up jobs with salaries almost 50 percent higher than those with bachelor degrees. " 
The new report will be of interest to educators as well as parents and taxpayers as funders.
