FACTORS WORKING BEHIND AN ENGINEER’S EMPLOY-ABILITY:auto_admin / No Comments
1)What is lacking in our system is proper training and development methodologies, which could be implemented right from the first year, when a student enters college. The principle applies to all (management, engineering, IT etc.)
2)The ability to apply the concepts learnt to constantly develop innovative things and find solutions to complex problems are the main factors working behind the employability of an engineer.
3)Problems with the English 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. There is a consistent trend that the maximum gap is in computer programming, followed by cognitive skills and English and least in other domain skills.”
4)Students must be given the space and scope to think and innovate, to question and come up with solutions. Indian students trained right from their primary education that they never learn to question or innovate. Rote learning instils in students a sort of complacency for more than 12 years of education and they are unable to make the shift from un-questioning learners to innovators in the job market.
5)One of the major problems facing fresh graduates is their insufficient understanding of basic concepts. The lack of in-depth understanding of technical information, lack of client-handling skills and insufficient knowledge across domains are the major skill gaps in the area
6)The study attributes the lack of English communicative skills, which they found in 73.63 per cent of candidates, and low analytical and quantitative skills, which they discovered in 57.96 per cent of candidates to be other main reasons for unemployment. Aptitude tests are conducted to know your problem-solving skills, how efficiently you can work to solve a problem in the given time.
