A lot of developing countries have provided technology programs for their students as a result of economic growth. In Africa, this is not the case for many students. Actually, university students' enrollment in the STEM subjects is less than 25 percent according to this source. For the most part, STEM subjects and programs contribute to a lot of the jobs in today’s labor market.
In today’s world, it's easier to find jobs related to some of the programs highlighted in the aforementioned link. The world has changed and the labor market is responding to these changes.
