The STEM fields include a wide variety of fields and professions.  The education requirements are also quite broad from an Associate degree for positions such as Engineering Technician, Baccalaureate degrees for engineers to doctoral degrees for research scientists and some other professional careers.  Most STEM related fields require a minimum of a Bachelor degree to enter the field and many will require a graduate degree, licensure or further education to advance in the field.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that 93 out 100 STEM occupations earn more than the national average salary, although annual wages have a wide range.

Engineering and Science Technology graduates typical earn an annual salary of about $55,000 with an Associate Degree although most positions require Bachelor Degree to enter STEM fields.  STEM graduates are generally well paid with full time engineers with a Bachelor degree starting from about $75,000 to  as much as $145,000.  Positions in the natural sciences have similar compensation ranges although research positions usually require a doctoral degree and earn annual starting salaries of from $105,000 to $150,000.
