95% of the engineers are unfit for software development jobs : Report

Report By Noor Zahira | Mount Carmel College Student Bengaluru | Last Updated at May 03 2019

According to sources only 4.77% of the engineering students can write correct logic and algorithm which is a minimum requirement for any computer job and the remaining requires coding which again student aren’t good at.

Over 36000 students from various IT colleges took automated machine learning and approximately 3/4th of the students couldn’t even write a code that could comply.

“Lack of programming skills is adversely impacting the IT and data science ecosystem in India… India needs to catch up,” Aspiring Minds CTO and co-founder Varun Aggarwal said.

The employability gap can be attributed to mindless teaching where students memorize programming instead of writing and practicing on computers to solve different problems. Adding to the existing problem of lack of students there is a dearth lack of good teachers too since most of the good programmers get placed with top companies for handsome pay.

Programming skills are five times poorer for tier III colleges as compared to tier 1 colleges according to economic times.

Only 69% of people write compilable code from top 100 college whereas only 30% from rest colleges.

The Ancient Times

Because we’re journalists, we’re impatient. We want to gather the news as quickly as possible, using any technological resource available. And when we’re as sure of the story as we can be, we want to share it immediately, in whatever way reaches the most people. The Internet didn’t plant these ideas in our heads. We’ve always been this way.
