Does Industry Freshers Require Technical Education

Industry Freshers Tech Education
The Future Institute of Engineering and Management, in order to mark the 10 year celebrations of its flourishing existence had organized a debate on Wednesday where industry insiders and academics discussed and debated various aspects of the issue.


If technical education should focus only on academics and not on industry grooming, is a question that concerns not only students but also the recruiters when they hire freshers too. While some felt that academic excellence is important to understand the industry requirements and to build a place for yourself in the industry, there were others who felt that one should be able to 'Think' for that boosts creativity and only academics cannot fulfill the criteria.

Dr.Joyashree Roy, a professor of economics at Jadavpur University said "By the time people go for their technical education, they are mature enough and half of their grooming is done naturally. What they need is that special knowledge for which they pursue technical education. Academic brilliance makes a mind creative".

The Education Minister Bratya Basu was also present in this event. National Jute Board secretary Atri Bhattacharya believed that education itself is an industry and that is not self-fueling. He said "We do want researchers in every field, but we definitely not want individuals who are isolated from the real world. Industry grooming is very important to let people know about the world they have lively in and how it functions, so that they can groom themselves accordingly".

The team is also going to come up with two new institutions in future, The Future School of Architecture and Planning and The Future School of Hospitality. The institute Director Dr.Mousumi Ghosh said "We help create opportunities for students to acquire and develop personal, social and professional knowledge, skills and values through knowledge driven learning. We have practiced that for 10 years now and will continue to grow".
