Bengaluru (Karnataka) [India], February 7: The current education landscape in India has seen a significant transformation in recent years. With 50% of the population under the age of 25, after completing school education, many students want to pursue their engineering and have a tech career. However, a recent report by Aspiring Minds on national employability states that over 80% of Indian engineers are unemployable and lack new-age technology skills. One of the major reasons behind this is the outdated curriculum where institutions stick to traditional methods of teaching. The widespread unemployment of graduates is a critical problem that needs to be addressed. The report also mentions that only 3.84 per cent of engineers in the country have the technical, cognitive and linguistic skills required for software-related jobs.
Faculties in institutions today are not talking about the industry application of concepts in classes. Just having theoretical knowledge will confine students to traditional methods of education and not have any value added to their skill set. With recent technological innovations like artificial intelligence, data science, machine learning and mobile development, only very few have the new-age technological skills needed to excel in the industry. Other countries like the US and China have more engineers who know how to code than in India. With the ever-increasing demand for software engineers, students need to have a strong foundation in core concepts and technologies.
Even today, institutions follow the traditional and outdated curriculum when the IT industry is undergoing significant changes when it comes to technology. Today, institutions are not able to cope with the demands of the tech industry, which causes a major problem for aspiring engineers who lack the skill set and capabilities needed to meet the industry requirements. With fewer options, perhaps we need to break away from the conventional route and look at undergraduate courses in the country that offer curriculums that are far more ‘future-ready’ than their traditional counterparts. These courses not only provide enhanced learning experiences but also address the major problem of unemployability.
This is where institutions like the Scaler School of Technology (SST) come into the picture. Scaler School of Technology offers a 4-year residential undergraduate program in computer science that provides students with a competitive edge by offering a skill-focused program complemented by prestigious degrees and a strong brand value. Unlike traditional institutions, SST has an industry-driven curriculum which is created with the involvement of industry leaders to meet the demands of the tech industry. SST’s unique 1:1 mentorship with industry experts and instructors with relevant industry experience provides a good value addition to students’ learning experience.
If you are looking to have a career in technology with the right skill sets, SST is the place for you where you have an in-depth understanding of problem-solving skills with a blend of theoretical knowledge and hands-on application. During last year, the admissions saw an intake of 54,000 registrations for just 191 seats, and the selection rate stands at an exclusive 2-3%. Currently, early intake for the next batch is in process, and the batch will commence in August 2024. For more information, visit https://www.scaler.com/school-of-technology/
