abstract = "This chapter presents the results of a quantitative analysis of nationaldata covering Danish students who in the period 1995-2009 completed an uppersecondaryschool programme and entered a higher-education science, technology,engineering or mathematics (STEM) programme. The analysis focuses on identifyingvariables that change the hazard ratio for (1) entering a STEM programmeand (2) leaving a STEM programme without completing it. Finally, the chapterexplores (3) the destinations of students who leave a STEM higher-education programme.It is found that there has been no change in the relative chance of a maleor female student entering a STEM programme. The results suggest that femalestudents are more affected by achieving a high grade-point average and by the educational background of their parents than are the male students. The relative riskof non-completion is higher for women than for men, but the most important factoris GPA on entry. A disturbing result is that when student leave a STEM programme,only one third enter another STEM programme. Slightly more enter a non-STEM programme while non-STEM leavers only rarely enter a STEM programme.Non-completion in STEM higher education is a net loss of STEM graduates",
