5. Digital Music Software Engineer
Median Salary: $102,000
Digital music software engineers create and maintain computer programs used for producing sound effects. They write code and develop the software that allows people to download and access music, play their favorite song on their Xbox, and compose music on their computer. Their work is used in films, TV, radio, computer games, and music.
Duquesne University, Marist College, and Western Technology College are some of the schools that have related majors so you can go on to work at companies such as Roxio, Sony, and Ubisoft.
As you can see, you don’t have to be on stage to have a music career. The folks behind the scenes, especially those in STEM careers, are just as instrumental (pun intended!) in bringing music to life.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
