A 2010 report by the National Science Board (NSB) says that foreign students on temporary visas earned 50 percent or more of all doctoral degrees awarded in engineering, physics, mathematics, and the computer sciences. The United States is just not creating enough engineers to meet the demands of the profession, and many of these jobs are going to others.
We can do better. Stern Communications is helping industry leaders in their efforts to improve outreach to the next generation of engineers, and explain that it’s where many of the jobs will be over the next few decades.
Current and past work includes:
