Harris Interactive conducted surveys to know the reasons why some students and parents choose STEM-related careers or courses.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the next several years, more than one million jobs will open up that require specialized technology skills. However, there won’t be enough numbers of qualified college graduates to fill them.

Harris Interactive conducted two surveys on behalf of Microsoft to understand the shortage of students that take science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)-related fields. One survey focused on parents with K-12 students while the other one surveyed college students pursuing STEM degrees.
