|Abstract:||The present paper examines the hypothesis that those with a qualification in Science & Technology (S&T) enjoy favourable labour market outcomes. Analysis is based on individual-level data detailing the labour market experiences of Irish university graduates upon entering employment. Calculations using a Gini-Hirschman index indicate that S&T graduates have a wider occupational domain. Additionally, tabulations indicate that on the whole they tend to earn more. Application of an ordered probit model controlling for other factors suggests that engineering graduates enjoy a clear earnings advantage; however the opposite appears to be the case for science graduates.|
