STEM majors and related careers are in the spotlight right now.
Positions in STEM fields are both well-paid and in demand. But what are some of the top-paid majors?
In February, the New York Federal Reserve released data showing that the top 10 highest paid majors were in STEM fields, specifically science and engineering majors.
Computer engineering came in at #2, with a median early career wage of $74,000 and media mid-career wage of $114,000. Computer science came in at #5 with a median early career wage of $73,000 and a median mid-career wage of $105,000.
Computer Engineers use math and science to design computer hardware and software systems.
Computer Science brings together theory, design, development and application.
