Poor Employ-ability Ratio of Indian Engineering Graduates
The India employability report by Aspiring Minds, a research firm, has bought out the obvious fact that the quality of the education system in India is, well, abysmal.
But it is the numbers that really dents the point home. Chennai, home to Anna University, one of the largest universities in India with about 400 colleges affiliated to it, has an employability rate of an awful 1%. Even the the state with the highest employability percentage, Delhi, is only at 13%. Bangalore, the so called ‘silicon valley of India’ is at a staggering 3.2%.
Clearly, something is horribly wrong with our technology education system & the mentality of students pursuing engineering. Students have no idea about the career options available after completing engineering. Below are the some mojor points which results in poor employability of Engineering graduates in the country.
Outdated learning – Syllabus followed in our colleges is based on 90’s industrial practice, which have no relevance in todays technology based industry. This could be one reason why engineering students are not relevant to today’s industry.
Theory vs Practice – The current education system poses a chasm between theory and practice. Very little of what is learnt at college can be put into practice in everyday life. Hence, the best performers of the system, which are the kids with the best grades, actually can do very little work and need to be separately trained for it. That’s an expense that not everyone in the industry wants to take.
Exam culture – Learning is a continual process, and exams are a way to measure the extent of your learning. It is not the end all. Unfortunately, the grade of a graduate is the first filter for employment, and hence students lay emphasis on only the exam and not on learning the subject. This results in weak fundamentals, and hence, industry irrelevance.
Lack of exposure – Given that the end goal of technical education is a placement in a college, the amount of exposure given to students about the industry is also very little. It is not until the final year of their college that they begin to understand what the industry really wants. An early exposure to industry can give students an idea of what is relevant in the industry, which they can learn in their own time.
Bad career matching – Over the years, the lucrative opportunities that a professional life in the technology industry has provided, has made engineering sciences the de-facto choice for graduate studies. Weather or not the student has the aptitude for the stream is not taken into account, resulting in uninterested engineering candidates, who haven’t taken to their subjects as much as they should have, making them irrelevant to the industry.
