U.S. universities open new programs for students in STEM, engineering

NEW YORK — U.K. universities have opened new STEM programs for more than 100,000 students who were excluded from their first year of university because of disability, according to the Education Department.

The government said in a statement that the initiative is part of a broader effort to encourage more people with disabilities to study STEM subjects, and to support graduates who seek a career in technology.

The announcement is the first in the U.s. to make such a program a priority, as universities face increasing pressures to recruit and retain qualified students with disabilities.

The new programs are in five cities, including London and Cambridge, and are targeted at the disabled population, the government said.

Universities are required to offer a two-year diploma and a master’s degree in STEM subjects.

Universities have long offered programs for disabled students, but only for the first year.

The disability exclusion policy, known as the STEM exclusion policy for disabled people, was set in 2005 by the U,S.


Since then, the U has struggled to attract students with diverse backgrounds, with some students from disadvantaged backgrounds and others from highly educated backgrounds being excluded.

In recent years, the number of students with a disability has increased by about 3% a year.

U.k. universities in 2017 reported the first record number of disabled students enrolling in STEM.

The U.ks. government said the new program will help address the challenges that disabled students face when they enter university and to help students find jobs and achieve their potential.

The Education Ministry said that since 2015, more than 3 million people with intellectual disabilities have enrolled in university, with nearly half of them pursuing a master of science degree.

The program is a continuation of the existing disability exclusion policies that have existed for decades, the ministry said.

In 2018, the Department of Education said it would expand the number and scope of students who qualify for the STEM and other STEM degrees.

It said the expansion would create an additional 2.6 million new STEM and STEM related jobs in 2020.
