STEM Dropout Rates and the Manufacturing Skills Gap

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 16:26:06 EDT

JEFFERSONVILLE, IN--(Marketwired - September 22, 2016) - Students enjoy creating things, both with their hands and in the digital space, and they are also good problem solvers. So, it is no surprise that it is easy to encourage a students' interest in STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math. However, this interest is not translating into careers, creating a serious problem as companies struggle to fill thousands of skilled positions. About one-half of students with the intention to earn a STEM bachelor's degree, and more than two-thirds of those intending to earn a STEM associate's degree, fail to earn these degrees within 6 or 4 years, respectively. This is particularly the case with female and minority students (Eagan et al., 2014; Van Noy and Zeidenberg, 2014).
