Why Core Engg Courses Is The Most Opted In IT Age?

Engg Courses Heights When Compared To IT
Around 5lakh students graduate from Engineering colleges every year in India, around which 20% are actually employable and a major IT companies need around nearly 1lakh candidates. In order to make these young engineers ready for their Industry, the IT majors have been holding up their own programmes.


The IT Industry's hunger for manpower and the skill gap between the trained and the untrained have combined to starve other sectors, such as power and civil engineering, for a supply of quality engineers in recent years.

The Institution of Engineering and Technology, which is a non-profit professional institute of engineers and technologies that started in the UK and is now spread around the world with 1,52,000 members, is trying to effect some change, particularly for power engineering.

It is using an industry-academia tie-up to provide young engineering graduates around the country a leg-up on the lines of what the IT industry has been providing. This institution which has a strength of 4000 India membership will launch a six-month internship programme. It is actually a 6-months training spread over 2 years in order to familiarize engineering students with the least technologies in power engineering and try and push the sector as a career option other than IT.

An official of IET says "Power being one of the most crucial sectors for the country and with the problems seen on the national grids in recent days, the IET has chosen this sector to start with. It will take the programme to other sectors based on the success in Power. "
