Does studying engineering fulfil your sky-high dreams?

You all might have heard about the successful career, high scopes and dream job in the field of engineering but you must also grasp some amount of knowledge about the unexplored world before you opt for any field or course. There are 1.5 million engineering graduates in India as compared to 95,000 in USA- so it is important to know what they dream of.

What statistics say?

40% of AICTE enrolled engineering students get placements, which is very low.
80% of engineers in India were considered unemployable according to the National Employment Report of 2016. 
6% engineering graduates are being hired by the top 10 IT companies because the IT industry wants skills.

Reasons why engineering students do not get placed?

Job preference is a prevailing reason.

 

  • Another reason is the poor education and low standard of the Engineering colleges nowadays. Except for a few well-established Engineering colleges which offer the best education facilities, and along with it charge a huge amount of money are way beyond the financial reach of many people in a developing country like India. As a result, they opt for some unauthorized or cheap colleges where the fee is quite low. This leads to a showering of degrees but it also compromises with the skills they require for a productive future.
  • Lack of quality teachers, no regular basis designing of the syllabus, lack of innovative research and skill-based education and lack of proper English skills leads to a faulty education system. And this plays a major role in ruining the future prospects of an aspiring child.
  • This problem of India’s substandard Engineering education is widely known. But the entire blame cannot be put up on the education system when the students themselves have their hands in this mud pond. Being focused only to acquire a degree and good marks they mug up the entire syllabus, which does bring good scores but in vain. They lack practical idea and productive skill. This might/might not offer them a satisfying job.
  • Most of the engineering students don’t value engineering. Again AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) wants to close down about 800 engineering colleges across India because they are unable to provide quality education and good academic atmosphere needed by the students. 
  • A survey by AISHE has come to fore that enrolment in engineering programmes has seen a declining trend. 

All that the industrial/IT sector wants in today’s market is a well-skilled, practical and creative employee for their business to go well.

FAQs

Q: How much percentage of engineering students get placement in India or dream Engineering job ? 

As per the reports, 95% of engineers in the country is not fit for software development jobs 97% of engineer degree holders want jobs either in software engineering or core engineering. However, only 3% have suitable skills to be employed in software or product market, and only 7% are fit for core engineering tasks.

Q: Why there is so rush for B.Tech but the outcome is so unsatisfactory?

Education experts suggest students don’t always sign up for engineering courses just to become engineers but in reality, most of them are not passionate about their profession. They don’t enter into this field to start designing new engines for cars, developing a new gazette, building the next big software giant or taking part in the “Digital India” programme. Most of them simply want a job- any job or a job with the government. Whereas the eligibility criteria to apply for a government job is a ‘graduation degree’.  Which costs hardly Rs. 4000 to 5000 for 3 years and engineering costs Rs. 4 lakhs to 10 lakhs and the fee varies from institution to institutions, still students prefer engineering because they believe that the employers consider an engineering degree holder as more talented and capable compared to those who don’t possess one, regardless of whether the qualification has any direct relevance or implication for the job.

Q: How to get a job immediately after completion of engineering?

  • Develop a passion for engineering and practical implementation of engineering knowledge.
  • Whatever you are studying go to the depth and make concepts clear. 
  • The most important thing that will improve your chances of getting a job in engineering is work experience. Join short-term internship programmes along with your studies.
  •  Prepare for aptitude and develop some soft skills along with your studies. Because these are the thing which is going to help you to create a good impression in your interviews. 
  •  Do extra courses relevant to your subject to keep yourself one step ahead of the crowd. 
  •  Make your CV Professional and impressive. But don’t write anything fake and untrue in your CV.
  •  If your college does not provide the placements then you better start looking for a trusted placement company near you.

Q: What I can do after B.Tech?

  • Placement: This is one of the best options if you are not interested in pursuing further studies.
  • Masters: M.Tech is the next step that allows you to select your field of expertise and excel in it. Specialization in a particular field will provide an edge during job interviews.
  • MBA: Have you ever felt that engineering was not your cup of tea? It is still not too late to switch over to the business side. You can go for MBA degrees after engineering. As a result of which you can work in the management team in the corporate world.
  • Diploma Courses: If you don’t want to go for 2 years M.Tech, then you can opt for short-term courses or diplomas to add some specialized educational qualification to your resume.
  • Entrepreneurship: Starting off your own business is also a great option after completing your B.Tech. This option gives you the freedom to express your creativity and ideas.
  • Civil Service Examination: For engineering graduates, there is the IES in addition to the civil services one. If you are interested in a government job, then start preparing for the civil service examinations. Apart from this, you can apply for other government jobs too.

Q: What are the things to keep in mind while choosing a good engineering college?

  • UGC recognition or AICTE affiliation
  • Ranking of the institution
  • Reputation of the institution
  • Placement record
  • Legacy & Reputation of the institution
  • Fee of the institution
  • Student-faculty ratio
  • Quality of students joining the institution
