Mexico Science and Engineering Career Expectations

The 2018 PISA survey also included a portion where students were asked about their science and engineering career aspirations. A larger proportion of both Mexican boys and girls (30% and 10.7%, respectively) than the OECD average proportion of boys and girls (15.2% and 7.10%, respectively). Despite these promising career aspirations Mexican boys and girls have, the gender gap is more noticeable. Whereas among OECD countries, more than twice as many boys than girls have science and engineering career aspirations, among Mexican adolescents, about three times as many boys than girls have science and engineering career aspirations.
