Fresh passouts are Unemployable!!!! RRS feed

  • Question

  • ".................We need to get the quality aspect of talent right. It's not the numbers that are the issue. We already turn out 4,00,000 plus engineers a year. This year's admission in engineering schools is 5,69,000. It's the skill sets that they come out with, as a result of which they are not employable, that's the issue. Bigger companies are able to provide 3-6 months of training but not all companies have the wherewithal to do that. But even that's a medium-term problem that can be fixed by curriculum changes, faculty training and improving linkages between industry and academia. The long-term problem, however, has two dimensions to it. One, where is the faculty of the future going to come from? Two, the academic system by and large is not delivering. That's happening because the academic system is not market-responsive as a result of which people coming out of the system are unemployable. To change that, we need major reforms in the educational system. Our system is what the British left us with 60 years ago. ........."

  • I believe we are responsible for it. We want to score good marks or grade in examination, but we don't want to learn something extra other than book.. Nobody really wants to research in universities. All they want to do is "mugging" and scoring..

  • That's true.

    But in some ways s/w industry is also responsible for it.

    Industry requires more n more of new hands but it's not investing enough in the education system for the quality, and as always Gov. have very limited resources and promptness is lacking to tackle the situation.
