STEM graduates earn 4.5% more

According to a report from the Royal Academy of Engineering, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) graduates earn 4.47% more than those leaving university with a first in other subjects. Additionally, professionals working within science, technology and engineering occupations earn on average 19% more than the rest of the professional labour market.
Maintaining and increasing the number of students of STEM subjects was seen as a “pressing policy priority” by the report.
This is excellent news for the School of Engineering and Digital Arts which produces outstanding graduates who are ready for the world of work. Our graduates are equipped with strong academic, scientific and technological competences, aligned to the needs of industry on a local, national and global level and these competences provide graduates with the opportunity to pursue careers in many different areas.
