Editorial

Ill Prepared for the Future

The engineering profession of India is bogged down with multiple paradoxes. Though India is a country producing the highest number of engineers compared to the US and China combined, yet according to reports over the last few years, it is seen that the engineering institutes of the country haven't been producing state of the art skills. According to a NASSCOM survey of 2011, it is seen that 17% of the engineering graduates are only employable. this highlights a mismatched discord between the industry demands and the technical education system. Also, in 2015-16 around eight lakh students graduated with a little over the amount finishing the science stream. Yet, there are no takers of around more than 50% of the seats in the engineering institutes of the country. D17The changing governments of the country has done little to boost the scenario. Also, this grim situation would have an adverse impact on the Make in India programme which aims at bolstering the manufacturing capacity and generating 100 million jobs by the year 2022. The Make in India programme requires skilled engineers for designing products to meet the requirements of the international competition. with such a requirement, the Government makes sure to empower the colleges and the institutes too should implement a modeled curriculum to produce more high-skilled students.
