There was a time when students are fond of pursuing engineering, but about today? Do the students still feel the same? Does engineering have the same importance as before? No, the things have changed with time so as the engineering. Today I am going to list some of the reason why engineering is failing in India.
The syllabus doesn’t contain the education which is needed by the growing companies these days. The education sector of India has not evolved, but the industries are evolving and so are their expectations. There is a huge difference in the things what a company needs and what the aspiring engineers are leaning in the colleges. There is a huge difference in the things what a company needs and what the aspiring engineers are leaning in the colleges.
There are thousands of colleges which are providing the engineering degree but actually how many of them have the quality teachers. After wandering here and there for jobs in engineering companies, some students go for Ph.D. while some other land up teaching in the engineering colleges. Hence, there is a scarcity of good quality teachers in the institutes.
That is a very big reason for the failure of engineering in India. The faculties from India are unable to teach or build students in such a way that they can stand out in the crowd. Exceptionally, there are only a few teachers who actually teach to imbricate the skills in the students.
Why are we lacking Innovation? The answer to the question is the lack of freedom to question or contradict the things. Many teachers don’t even allow the students to question them. The students should keep trying to resolve the problems practically which they face in their daily routine. The curiosity or prompt questions leads to a new innovation. Hence, the students should be supported for their interrogations and concerns. The students should be provided the liberty to think, research and innovate.
The skilled education is the basic priority for engineering students. The students should keep trying to resolve the problems practically which they face in their daily routine. But most of the students lack in this, this is due to inadequate knowledge of technical guidance, client handling, and other domains. No doubt the government has initiated the schemes like Startup India and Make In India which is a good step. But to avail these schemes it is very important to make the students capable of it.
In many reports, it is studied that the brand of the college also matters. The top companies are willing to visit in only top colleges for the placement. Mostly, the colleges which are not popular were not shortlisted to recruit. Somehow, this is responsible for lack of opportunities for those students who are exceptionally intelligent but fails to take admission in the top college. This is also against equal opportunity.
IT industry offers the maximum job opportunities for engineers as compared to that of other industries. But the fact is that, that how much of those engineers are eligible or skilled enough to get the job. According to the statistics, there are only a few percents of the engineers who can work for the IT product roles. The fascination of acquiring a job in IT industry leads most students to opt for the IT Engineering. As a result, the lack of knowledge creates those graduates who are neither good at their subject nor in IT.
In today’s time, it is not possible to get a good job if you are poor at English. The communication skills are one of the most prominent features to acquire a job. Every industry wants to hire people who have fluency in English and have good communication skills. Lack of communication skills becomes one of the major reasons behind the unemployment of the present youth.
