It is time to narrow the gender gap in Kingdom

Arab News - Sabria S. Jawhar

 

Greet Brosens, managing director of Sagent Recruitment, told the news website PolicyMic that, “The number of girls studying engineering in the Middle East is higher than the UK for all countries where stats are available. Kuwait jumps out with near parity at 49 percent, and some research even suggests that girls have now overtaken boys in engineering subjects. Bahrain (has a female engineering student population) of 32 percent. (And) 80 percent of all girls in Saudi Arabia are interested in engineering.”


This sharply contrasts to young Western women entering college in which only 19 percent of American women graduated with engineering degrees in 2012. Only 15 to 16 percent of the women in the United Kingdom comprise engineering students.


According to PolicyMic, part of the success in Saudi Arabia producing so many female engineering

candidates is our gender-segregated education system, which promotes an environment to excel. However, the Saudi education system is taken to task for its segregated system for not preparing Saudi women to work alongside men.
