According to the latest Aspiring Minds National Employability Report there are thousands of students that graduate every year from engineering colleges but, it seems that 80% of them do not have the needed technical skills for them to be employable.
According to Varun Aggarwal, the CTO of Aspiring Minds “Engineering has become the de-facto graduate degree for a large chunk of students today. However, along with improving the educational standard, it is quintessential that we evolve our undergraduate programs to make them more job centric.”
The report showed that men and women’s employability were equal, though women’s employability was higher in sectors like BPO, content developer, sales engineer, etc. The report also showed that Delhi followed by Bengaluru were among the top cities who produced the highest number of employable engineers.
