What is STEM?
- Workforce projections for 2018 show that 9 of the 10 fastest-growing occupations that require at least a Bachelor’s Degree will require significant scientific or mathematical training. STEM jobs are expected to grow by 17 percent from 2008 to 2018, while non-STEM jobs are expected to grow by 9.8 percent. The supply of new workers in these fields is struggling to keep up with demand, and women remain severely under-represented. (from the American Association of University Women)
- If you’ve trained for a career in engineering, you stand to be well-compensated right out of the gate. The median starting salary for applicants with a bachelor’s in this field is $53,400. It is the top-paying field on our list. (from Forbes: Top-Paying Entry-Level Jobs For College Grads)
