VIDEO: Staffordshire University study reveals better job prospects for science graduates
SCIENCE, technology, engineering and maths students can expect higher salaries and better job prospects when they graduate.
That is according to a new study commissioned by Staffordshire University.
The research, carried out by the Centre for Business and Economic Research, claims science and technology will generate one in four of the new jobs in the UK in the next five years – equivalent to 140,000 new 'STEM-related' jobs.
The report was released the day before the university was due to open its new £30 million Science Centre.
