What makes software engineering a low stress job and so high paying?
I see consistent reports from US News and World Report that Software Engineering is a low stress, high paying job. If this is the case, then what degree can I get to become a software engineer?

Low stress because you are on your own time. High paying because not too many people have the degree or knowledge needed. Check out www.dol.gov and look under Occupational Outlook Handbook. It will give you all the info you need, and the info is good until 2014. Good luck and peace.
