Continuing the drift, India gains the top position as it is among other Asian countries in sending engineers and scientists in the US. As per a report which revealed the information that there has been an increase of 85% from the year 2003 as India had send around 9,50,000 engineers and scientists out of Asia’s total count of 2.96 million.
The number of engineers and scientists who are staying in the US has increased from 21.6 million to 29 million were Indian born. In the ten years i.e. from 2003 till 2013, the US had seen an important increase in the statistics of Immigrant engineers and scientists from 3.4 million to 5.2 million.
The immigrants from India went to the US had made around 16% of science and 18% of the engineering workforce. According to the report, around 63% of the US immigrants engineers and scientists were naturalized populations, around 22% were permanent residents, and around 15% were temporary residents.
The report also revealed that the engineers and scientists were likely to receive post-university bachelor degrees than their US-born citizens. Among the immigrants that are presently working in the engineering and science fields, the biggest proportion of about 18% had worked in the maths and computer science fields, while around 8% had been worked in the engineering field.
According to a report, mathematical, computers, life and social scientists were the fields that had witnessed the immigrant job growth from the year 2003 till 2013.
