    95% engineers in India unfit for software development jobs, claims report

    Talent shortage is acute in the IT and data science ecosystem in India with a survey claiming that 95% of engineers in the country are not fit to take up software development jobs.

    According to a study by employability assessment company Aspiring Minds, only 4.77% candidates can write the correct logic for a programme -- a minimum requirement for any programming job.


    Over 36,000 engineering students form IT related branches of over 500 colleges took Automata -- a Machine Learning based assessment of software development skills - and over 2/3 could not even write code that compiles.

    The study further noted that while more than 60% candidates cannot even write code that compiles, only 1.4% can write functionally correct and efficient code.




    "Lack of programming skills is adversely impacting the IT and data science ecosystem in India. The world is moving towards introducing programming to three-year-old! India needs to catch up," Aspiring Minds CTO and co-founder
    Varun Aggarwal said.

    The
    employability gap can be attributed to rote learning based approaches rather than actually writing programmes on a computer for different problems. Also, there is a dearth of good teachers for programming, since most good programmers get jobs in industry at good salaries, the study said.




    Moreover, programming skills are five times poorer for tier III colleges as compared to tier 1 colleges.




    "Sixty nine per cent of candidates from top 100 colleges are able to write a compilable code versus rest of the colleges where only 31% are able to write a compilable code," the report said.

    This has been the case since the time many Private Engineering Collages started mushrooming all over India especially in the Southern States .

    What is the bribe or whatever name it is called to get into these bogus engineering colleges?

    hi

    quantity of engg colleges increased....so quality decreased.....here simple econimical rule....supply and demand....supply is more...

    demand is less...once upon a proud anna univesrity or even IITs well respected....now the more IITs are coming...the same

    situation will be...even more private medical colleges means.....less quality doctors...
    asato maa sadh gamayaa, tamaso maa jyotir
    gamayaa, mrityor maa amritham gamayaaa..
    om shanti, om shanti, om shanti...upanishad
