What is a STEM Degree in BitLife?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics. When talking about a STEM degree, this means any degree that falls under these four categories.

BitLife is no exception: when you pick a university degree, you can choose from all kinds of different options, including these. Depending on which you go for, you’ll usually find corporate and engineering jobs after graduation. One of my BitLife characters who studied engineering became a pilot! Alternatively, you can go to a Space Academy and become an astronaut.

How to Get a STEM Degree in BitLife

To get a STEM degree in BitLife, you’ll have to apply to university and pick a science, technology, engineering or mathematics major. Personally, I always go for an engineering degree, but options like mathematics and chemistry also work.

University Degree Options in BitLife
Engineering is one of several options you can choose!

Every university degree in BitLife takes four years to complete, with tuition costs ranging from free public education to tens of thousands of dollars. If your character lives in a country with expensive tuition fees, be sure to work a part-time job or find ways to make some money to pay for your student loan! You can also apply for a scholarship, but you’re not guaranteed to get one, even with high stats. Make sure to keep your smart stats high to boost your chances!
