The prestigious online training school, Structuralia, publishes the results of the new version of the 2022 STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Annual Report, which seeks to provide a more realistic perspective for professionals in the field in Latin America and the Caribbean.

The data obtained from this survey reveal how important specialised higher education is for the development of working professionals and for future professionals in the sector. It is a key factor for professional positions, better jobs, better salaries, getting out of a situation of unemployment, among others.

Important data obtained supports these assertions, such as the fact that 52.73% believe that studying a Master's degree can help them to opt for new professional positions in other companies and change jobs; and 66.67% of those surveyed believe that studying a Master's degree now could get them out of unemployment within a period of between 3 and 6 months.

The outlook in Caribbean countries such as: Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Guyana, Dominica, Suriname, Bahamas, Saint Lucia, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenaun; reflects a high interest in specialised training in Masters programmes and a high concern that traditional educational formats are not the most appropriate to address the demands of the labour market and technological changes in their country, as 8 out of 10 people consider that the Caribbean region does not currently have them.

Professionals often wonder which areas can offer better opportunities. According to this study, the "renewable energies, sustainability and environment" sector ranked first with 31.70%, followed by "digital transformation and smart infrastructures" with 28.81%.
