STEM in India
India has been known for its mathematical and science innovations since its emergence from ancient culture. Ancient and medieval Indian mathematical works and contributions had a strong influence on the educational developments in India, and today, Indian universities are dedicated to the development of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) programs.
In the last 20 years, STEM programs have evolved very quickly, and have had great influence on business, industry and the public. Companies around the world have started to demand an increase in STEM-related services, including in the fields of:
- information technology (IT)
- analytical services
- research delivery in the field of science
These services (and the skilled individuals who have studied in STEM programs) will be necessary for future innovation and growth in business. Graduates of STEM programs are well prepared to address the evolving needs and expectations of business because of their ability to reflect developmental changes to the current state of knowledge in computing, science and analytics.
In India, students in STEM programs are exposed to curriculum content that covers the necessary concepts and principles of science, technology, engineering and mathematics through the lens of the latest advancements in technology. Because of the preparation and strong technological foundation that STEM students in India receive, graduates from these programs have been able to secure opportunities, both for further study at world renowned educational institutions and for highly competitive careers in multinational companies around the world.
