Higher Education in STEM subjects

The House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee conducted an inquiry into higher education in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

The inquiry, was conducted by Sub-Committee I under the chairmanship of Lord Willis of Knaresborough, and investigated, amongst other things, whether the number of STEM students and graduates was sufficient to meet the needs of industry, the research base, and other sectors, and whether they are of a high enough quality.

A call for evidence inviting written submissions on this inquiry was published on 2 November. The deadline for submissions was 16 December.
