Misconceptions About Employment
There is a misconception about getting employment in the field of engineering education that every year the number of engineering graduates is increasing and jobs are not available in proportion to it, whereas in reality employment opportunities are increasing. But among graduate youth,
Lack of skills for employment is coming to the fore or deficiencies are found in the degree of the students. To make students employable, companies are now establishing direct association with educational institutions. Educational institutions have also started making their courses job-oriented.
Technical studies are being made advanced by changing the courses according to the modern era. Nowadays companies select students during B.Tech. and also give their PPOs (Pre-Placement Offers). After this, students are prepared according to the needs of the company. At present, with the increase in the number of engineers, employment opportunities are also increasing.
Future Belongs To The Digital Era
The future will be technology and digital-based. In view of this, most of the IITs and other renowned engineering institutes have started courses like Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Cyber Security, Block Chain, and Internet of Things. There are more career prospects in these courses in the near future. That’s why the trend of students is being seen in computer science as well as in these fields.
