Analysis of low employability (appx 20%) of engineering graduates in India.

➲ Study conducted by TOI, HT & Business Insider revealed very shocking fact that employability of engineering graduates in India based upon their current skills is as low as 20%.

➲ It means that only 20 out of every 100 students based upon their current skills and ability to apply their engineering knowledge, are fit to get engineering jobs.

➲ The famous industrialist Anand Mahindra is very vocal about this sad state of skill level of engineers in India and it’s indeed a cause of worry.

➲ This is not only worrisome for engineers at entry level but also for industries because it is resulting into shortage of the right talent in Indian job market.


⏩ Article in Business Insider:




➲ The purpose of this blog is to analyse the reasons behind mere 30% employability rate of engineering graduates in India based upon their current skills and how to overcome such a bad situation.

So, Why are we in such a pathetic condition?

➲ What could be the solutions concerning Design & Development?


According to industry experts who analyzed the results, following top reasons emerged behind low employability:

➲ Advanced tools, technologies, methodologies & processes have evolved rapidly as a result of rapid globalisation but educational system has not yet adapted & coped up with these changes.

➲ Industries are looking for engineers with the abilities to apply the knowledge & processes to deliver projects, ability to innovate & thought leadership. But, educational systems mostly grade engineers based upon exam which is driven by memorizing answers rather than solving real life problems.

➲ Most of the professors in engineering colleges have great educational acumen but no industry exposure.

➲ Labs in engineering colleges are not up to mark in order to conduct experimental research & solve real industry problems.

➲ Engineering colleges mostly focus on delivering pre-defined syllabus rather than promoting innovation & problem-solving approach.

➲ Lack of awareness among students about career options.

➲ Industries need engineers with great leadership & soft skills whereas engineering colleges & students hardly work on it.

➲ Syllabus of engineering colleges doesn’t include most needed knowledge such as design & manufacturing domains, design processes, GD&T, Design for Variation, DFMEA, Six Sigma processes, value engineering & innovation etc.

➲ Students are more often forced to become” Jack of all trades and expert of none”.
