“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.
