From the earlier debate I also think engineering is harder than becoming a CA and for some engineering fields it isn't even close (I look at you electrical engineering and aerospace engineering).
Not everyone starts at that. Most start at 45k. To get 55k you need be lucky or willing to relocate. I'm not done by undergrad but my sis finished last year. She had a high GPA but had tough time finding a job despite being fluent billingual, had an internship and a lot of work experience. When she finally found a job, she found 2 in the same week, the one she actually wanted paid more at 45k. It took her about 4 months to find a job in montreal but she did got on vaca for a bit. She's in civil btw.
