Are Leonard, Sheldon, Howard, and Rajesh poor?

They seem to be since they rent a room together, live with his mom, etc. Shouldn't engineers, scientists, physicists be rich?? what's going on here??

They work at the university. Usually those aren't jobs that are payed too good.I guess they aren't broke, but they aren't rich either.Buying Comicbooks, computers and all those geeky gimicks isn't cheap either.
I don't think that money is a big issue for those guys. they don't want to become rich, they want to discover anything important and make a name for themselves. As long as they can afford their geeky lifestyle, they don't care about money a lot, i think.

When Penny had some money issues, Sheldon lent her money (without caring when she'd give it back), saying that he only needs a certain amount to live (including his geeky lifestyle), and the rest is just saved for as of yet undecided purposes.
So, basically, they have a bit more money than they need for how they're currently living.
