Sneak Peek at Existing Education System in India

Education system is undoubtedly one of the key factors which decides the destiny of any nation. A quality education system provides a strong foundation to the youth from where they can take their country to new heights. Unfortunately standards of education system in our country is always taken for granted. There is no doubt that the percentage of educated youth in our country is increasing every year. But, at the same time we can’t deny that fact that, the percentage of unemployed graduates and post graduates has also increased rapidly during last five to ten years.

One of the biggest reason behind this is the lack of practical education to the students, especially in the technical and professionals’ courses like engineering (B.E, B.Tech), management (MBA, PGDM) etc. In the present scenario, where most of the employment opportunities are in MNCs and other privately held organizations it has become a necessity to be a ‘Job Ready’ candidate. The irony of our education system is that it is creating unwanted monstrous numbers of unskilled literates. Having bachelors and masters degrees are not just enough for getting jobs in the present times. One must be a well-skilled in terms of technology of his/her interest. The current education system is just providing degrees on the basis of theoretical knowledge which is not just enough. The below mentioned statistics and quotes from various reliable sources clearly indicates that how our youth is suffering because of our current education system.

These facts and figures are quite enough to explain the quality of our education system and its standards. It high time that our education system must start giving much needed consideration of the practical learning instead of theoretical approach which is currently being followed. Our youth is struggling to earn their bread and butter today just because of poor education system. This is the bitter fact which everybody of us knows in the core of our hearts. And this is not just the problem of our youth today but in fact a national issue which is somehow restricting the country of grow.

Today, when we talk about competing with world power like United States of America, are we really achieving what is needed from our education system? In the end it’s not about how many educational institutes and how many of us are getting our degrees in the end of the day. It’s about how many of us are contributing in the nation’s growth. I think, after this you will never question that whether our education system is good or not..!

Why Engineers need to update their technical skills?

The concept of Change Management is prevalent everywhere in the industry, our society as well as in our life-style and way of living also. One who is not flexible enough cannot exist in today’s world. In a world where technology is transforming rapidly there is a continuous need to update your skills, knowledge and learning. Attitude and flexibility is perhaps the two most important key elements for success. Indian education system is degrading day by day. Students have a huge passion to choose for the streams of Engineering or Medicine without assessing their aptitude. Ultimately they end up having degrees without any job. The colleges and institution cannot provide them suitable placements because there is vast gap between what is taught in colleges and what the industry demands.

Education in schools and colleges always emphasize on rote learning, mugging up of the concepts without understanding into the depth and a student is judged on the basis of his performance in three hours duration of the examination which is worst. The result is lakhs of engineering students are produced every year without having jobs. The Engineering graduates only learn the basics because whatever curriculum the colleges or institutes provides are very standard. There is absolutely no exposure of technical education.

There lies the underlying significance why an Engineering graduate should update their technical skills and knowledge. Software Engineers must constantly update their skills and knowledge to remain competitive and adapt to the rapid changes and advances in a computer technology. The Engineering graduates should go for a practical training after every semester to implement whatever they are learning. They should take their training from reputed training companies that so that they are exposed with the industrial environment. There are various training companies situated in metropolitan cities like Noida, Bangalore, and Hyderabad which provides Technical training to the Engineering graduates. There is no point in following a culture which is purely examination- centric without real-life application because there is a huge gap between the Engineering course content and the requirements of an Engineering Service Industry. This gap is perceived during the interview time and also when students are pursuing their internship programs.

The biggest gap is the practical application and knowledge of industry oriented practices related to the requirements of a particular role. One of the reasons for the gap is a fundamental lacuna in the Engineering education framework. Most of the colleges produce Engineering graduates but they are not productive during the first 6 months to 1 year and the companies are not interested to invest on the training.

So it is mandatory for the students to get trained in some reputed training companies so that they can improve their technical skill sets. Few key points are

Continuously update them on latest cutting-edge technologies which are in demand and which are currently practiced in industry.

They should do trainings on specialized topics.

They should get exposure into real life industrial projects. For eg. For students in Electronics Engineering students should do their project in a manner that where digital, analog, processor and programming are brought together.

With the demand in hi-tech design projects coming to India in areas such as telecom, aerospace, automotive and industrial automation the industry has been exposed to very special level of product design, development, testing. So companies are searching for people with specialized skill sets and quality talent.

Urge and Importance of 6 Months Industrial Training for Engineering Students

Engineering is one of the most demanding and sought out professions in India. Every year lakhs of students are opting for BE or BTECH course after completion of their schooling. The mushroom growth of Private Engineering colleges has affected the quality of education in recent times and it ultimately results in lack of employment especially for freshers. Students are earning a formal degree through BTECH or BE but they lack the technical expertise that is needed in the industry. Nowadays companies are very reluctant to provide on the job training to freshers. Instead they want 100 % output from day one. There comes the importance of six months industrial trainings for BE/ BTECH students from various training organizations.

Students also have the option to opt for winter training or summer training for 4/6 weeks. This can be beneficial for BTECH graduates who are in the 1st or 2nd year of their Engineering semester. It is always good for them to brush up their technical knowledge. Reason being most of the times either the college lacks to provide the proper state-of-the –art infrastructure of technical lab facilities or the students fail to pay appropriate attention to the classes. But for the final year students who are searching for job in the market they need to be trained and well-versed with Technology to get a job in the market that is already saturated. So they should always go for 6 months industrial training program where they have the option to work along with live industrial projects.

This 6 months industrial training definitely helps the students to get a good job in the market. The market is fiercely competitive and they want to absorb the quality candidates. These 6 months time period gives him or her opportunity to become technically sound once again, to clarify all the doubts, grasp technical know-how and gain technical expertise. It is advised to the students that if they really want to gain a strong technical exposure then they should opt for training companies instead of training institutes. Most of the engineering colleges are located in North India or South India. These Training companies have also come into existence mostly in metro cities like Delhi-NCR, Noida, Bangalore, Pune etc.

Students must join a training company that deals with technical training, software and embedded product development and as well as consulting services. The company must be having a strong HR and Placement Coordination division that help’s to place the students in various companies once they complete 6months industrial training with exposure into live projects. A particular candidate although will not earn during his initial training period but he has the privilege to work like an employee and get an exposure in all the verticals and domain. The training company must have separate software and embedded product development team that has developed web based applications for various clients, have also delivered corporate trainings. So students after getting trained will find it much easier to survive in the industry and climb up the ladder of success through hike in salary. The training companies like this works on personality development programs for the students because technical skills, interpersonal skills, communication skills, attitude are some of the most significant factors that the companies will take into consideration while absorbing a potential candidate
