According to New Dehli Based Employment Solution Company, Aspiring Minds, as conducted employability on focused study based on 150,000 engineering students who graduated in 2013. The result is shocking
What’s Problems with India’s engineers According to the HRD Ministry, India has 6,214 engineering and technology institutes which are enrolling 2.9 million students. Around 1.5 million engineering are released into the job market every year. But dismal state of higher education in ensures that they simply do not have adequate skills to be employed. Education Problems in India
What’s Problems with India’s engineers
So what is a result of this when such a large population of youth does not get jobs? Expert says that this may causes serious instability in the economic and social condition in the country, along with wide amount dissatisfaction and disillusionment. Though the quality of universities, colleges and institute and programs are going to increasing in the country but the lack of quality education persists. The hungry Management, lack of skill education, corruption, focuses on learning methods and shortage of faculty (in both quality and quantity) are the major problems in higher education. The candidate collecting there degree despite not being skilled enough to be a productive part of the Indian economy
Factors working behind an engineer’s employability
“The ability to apply the concept learnt to constantly and develops innovative things and finds solutions to complex problems are main factors working behind the employability of an engineer”
The stat of economy also plays a major role for employment generation. Industry experts says that in strained economic condition, companies do not want to spend much on training and would prefer candidates with some skill sets who can be made billable soon”
What’s Problems with India’s engineers “Language”
Along with issues in computer programming make these students ineligible for employment. The difference in English and cognitive skill modules may only be a function of the input quality of the students it is consistent trend that the maximum gap is in computer programming, followed by cognitive skills and English and least in other domain skills”
Syllabus not updated regularly: the courses or content that included in the syllabus is not matching to current requirements of companies and for job industries it is big gap between the is a need of market and what we are producing. Despite exponential changes in science and technology round world, the syllabus is hardly ever updated.
Lack of Quality of teachers
33,023 colleges and Institute are available in India granting degrees. There are not enough quality teachers for all of these education institutes. After multinational companies, the IT big shots of India, and the smaller engineering companies have had their pick, many form the remaining engineering graduates go on to get PhD and go to join as faculty at engineering institutes. Thus unlike other parts of the world, the India faculty is not comprised of the very best of the industries who have the skills to create brilliant students
What’s Problems with India’s engineers is Faulty education system
Semester system and the process of continuous evaluation are not fulfilling their desired roles as the student is not interested in continuous learning-they only want good grades. Unless the specific purpose of such initiatives is properly understood by faculty and students alike, these methods likely would not work
Lack of skill-based education
Skill-based education is another immediate need. Engineering students need to have hands-on training on the basis of the problems they are likely to encounter in the real world.
