ELSPA: We need more maths graduates

Director General of ELSPA Michael Rawlinson today called on the Government to encourage more young people into science and maths degrees to maintain Britain's leading position in the digital economy.

Rawlinson addressed the Westminster Media Forum's seminar, Priorities for Digital Britain, this afternoon – focusing on the future role of the gaming industry in Britain.

Rawlinson said: "This is an industry of highly-educated, strongly-skilled experts, many have first class degrees in maths and physics from leading British universities, but there are too few graduates in these subjects. We as an industry are committed to building Britain's high-tech skills base, but we want to see greater emphasis by the government to encourage students to take up these demanding subjects."

The story is too old to be commented.
