I hear a lot about petroleum engineering, software engineering, and actuarial science paying really well but are there any other well-paying fields many STEM graduates go into out of curiosity?

>petroleum engineering
if you're in the right country

>software engineering
:rofl: don't make me laugh

>actuarial science
well paid, not that much fun though

If you're searching for jobs starting off with which ones are the highest paid, you're not doing it right. No point finding a well paid job that you're no good at and don't ****ing enjoy.

I was just wondering out of curiosity not because I wanted to choose that job. I'm currently not even aiming for a STEM degree because it doesn't interest me, I just wanted to see what the "go to" high paying STEM jobs were since everyone seems to be saying that a STEM degree is the way to go if you want to have a stable, high-earning career.

Also, Software Engineers get paid 6 figures right after they're hired if you land a job at a big company like Google, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, etc.

It's also difficult for law students to get a job in a law firm or business students to get a job at an investment bank but it's still possible.
