Education in the United States. New in science, technology… – IsraelValley

The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) which covers higher education in the United States has just delivered its latest batch of statistics on the class of 2021, the famous generation of Covid students, and the numbers are exciting.

While for years, the low number of students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, abbreviated STEM in English, was pointed out as a bottleneck to innovation in the United States, a new dynamic seems to be taking shape.

Computer sciences grew by 130% over the period 2011-2021, which is by far the strongest increase among all the specializations taught.

Four other hard sciences (electronics, engineering sciences, environmental sciences, mathematics and statistics) and four medical disciplines (nursing, physiotherapy, general health and biology) monopolize the top 10 of the highest increases, leaving a last place to criminology.
