Knowledge and application of science, engineering and technology play an increasingly crucial role in the growth and stability of the U.S. economy. Over the past 10 years, growth in science and engineering (S&E) jobs was three times greater than that of other types of jobs and is expected to continue to grow at a faster rate than other jobs. 

This brief discusses patterns of science and engineering educational attainment within the foreign-born population using data from the 2010 American Community Survey.
