Original Title: MINT an öffentlichen Universitäten, Fachhochschulen sowie am Arbeitsmarkt. Eine Bestandsaufnahme

There is an ongoing discussion regarding a shortage of graduates in the so-called STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). This baseline study aims to provide an information base against which to assess the supply of graduates in STEM-related subjects and their labor market status. It includes an extensive literature review, data analysis using various data sources (National HEI Statistics, National Labor Market Statistics, Student Social Survey) as well as expert interviews.

An extended description of the project objectives and main results is available in German only.
