Most of the PhD students graduated with research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. The number of graduates in these fields of study stood at 40% of the total. France produces most graduates in natural sciences and engineering studies.

59% of PhDs in France are from engineering and natural sciences. Canada produces 55% graduates in these fields followed by China where 55% PhD students graduate in engineering and natural sciences studies.

Pakistan didn’t make it to the list of most PhD graduates in a year. The reason behind this might be that most of the Pakistanis choose foreign countries like Germany and France to pursue their PhDs.
