The Indian government declared February 28 as the National Science Day to commemorate the discovery of the 'Raman Effect' by the Indian scientist CV Raman. The aim is to boost participation in science and its applications.

Some parts of the application are already evident in the last three years where STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) jobs have witnessed a significant rise. The National Science Foundation says that as much as 80% of the jobs in the next 10 years will demand science and maths skills.

“With the world experiencing the positive impact of new technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, STEM based job roles are defining the future of work and giving reason for aspirants to pursue a career in related streams. Businesses across sectors too are looking towards the role of data and research as the catalysts for success,” Prateek Shukla, CEO and co-founder of Masai School told Business Insider.

According to the job site Indeed, science professionals skilled in analytics, coding, data and innovation can earn as much as ₹16 lakh per annum. Metropolitan areas including Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai hire and retain the maximum talent in the field.

Full stack developers, frontend engineers and Java coders are among the most sought-after jobs in India, as per LinkedIn.

Women in STEM roles

Women represent a minority in the world of science at a mere 30%; and only 35% of the STEM students are women.

This is despite the fact that almost 40% of Indians who graduate in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) disciplines are women. However, they constitute merely 14% of the total 280,000 scientists, engineers and technologists in research development institutions in India, according to the United Nations.

“Tech-based job roles have long been associated to be a male dominated space. With this preconceived notion, several women have been discouraged to take up tech based education or pursue related careers,” said Shukla of Masai School.

The edtech startup offers a six-month coding programme, pushing more women to take up careers in coding.
