There has been a massive skill gap in the engineering industry. It has become an urgent need to train engineering students with hands-on learning. (GLA University)

“As engineers, we were going to be in a position to change the world – not just study it.” —Henry Petroski, American Engineer

Engineering has been seen as a thriving career option across the globe nowadays. About a million students attain an engineering degree every year in India. Still, 80% of engineering graduates remain unemployed every year, according to a study. Moreover, only 14% of employed B.Tech degree holders acquire the top spots in professional life - this is also speculation of another research.

Soaring unemployment amongst engineers is a severe problem that needs to be fixed with skill-based learning oriented towards the industry. Once the engineering institutions start preparing their students with industry-centric skills, the skill gap within the industry will start shrinking. In terms of opportunities, there is no dearth of the same amid diverse sectors, but the industry expects engineers with high competence. The budding engineers need to focus on gaining hands-on experience to stand out among the crowd. The college selection, choice of specialization, level of study - aspirants should ponder over everything carefully.

Ideal Engineering Study

It is recommended that engineering students choose a college that can add value to their overall skills, not the ones that make big claims and treat students as a product of their academic factories. The multi-dimensional skill enhancement is necessary for the upcoming engineers to steer their careers in the right direction and expand their horizons. A good engineering college always emphasizes on imparting education that can be useful in the industry. One of the biggest reasons for the skill gap is that what students learn at your college is useless when they enter the industry.
