Abstract

There is a recognised need for employability skills to be embedded within undergraduate programmes in STEM subject areas. Enhancing the employability of graduates through enterprise-based education is an approach that was until recently predominantly seen in business subjects and is now being adopted across other disciplines. Idea development, business awareness, commercialisation and future-ready thinking are some of the aspects which could greatly enhance the employability of bioscience graduates. Design thinking is an approach consisting of a range of creative characteristics which complement scientific thinking in commercial, governmental and institutional decision-making processes. If science graduates have an awareness of such approaches they may be better equipped for employment in a wide range of
organisations.
