Science. Technology. Engineering. Math. (STEM)

What kind of person typically thrives in a STEM career? Someone with a strong work ethic who enjoys intellectual challenges; questions the norm; is interested in math and science; likes solving tough problems; and doesn’t let risk of failure hold them back. STEM programs aren’t easy, but for those suited to these career paths, the rewards can be significant.

STEM Careers: Above-Average Earnings

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 93 out of 100 STEM occupations have salaries above the national occupational wage average and STEM’s average wage was $87,570, nearly double that of non-STEM occupational wages ($45,700).  Plus, BC graduates are among the highest earners in Florida!
