The number of engineering colleges across India is steadily increasing and the enrollment numbers are only going up. But the students getting hired upon graduation in top tech companies are vastly limited to a handful from tier I colleges in major metropolitan cities. To solve this crisis, some students are taking things upon their own hands by upskilling themselves on the side and the results can be seen in an equally booming edtech market in recent years.
Enrolling students in crash courses in their final years before campus interviews is a lot like crash dieting – seldom sustainable. Taking the example of health – Getting fit and staying fit would mean a complete overhaul of one’s lifestyle as it requires a change in one’s dietary habits, going to the gym and making better choices over a period of time. Similarly, producing top tech talent would mean working with colleges on a long-term basis and addressing their needs and deficiencies together. Just like how looking aesthetically pleasing or getting abs is a byproduct of getting fit and adopting a healthier lifestyle, placement would similarly be then, a byproduct of good learning outcomes.
There are three fundamental challenges that most engineering colleges face. That includes –
Thus when we partner with an institution, we look to transform them holistically by addressing the above-mentioned issues. This wouldn’t be possible without leveraging our three key resources – people, processes, and technology.
