India may have a large number of youth but most of them are inadequately skilled for jobs. It’s truer in case of engineering education. IITians sure have impressed the world but a large number of students passing out of ordinary colleges are not even employable, let alone comparing with their counterparts from advanced countries.
Great Challenge for Indian Engineering Students
A study has found that Russian and Chinese engineering students are better than those in India. Indian students make substantial gains in mathematics and critical thinking skills in the first two years of their education compared to their counterparts in China and Russia, but their overall higher-order thinking skills are substantially lower than the Chinese and Russians. This is the preliminary finding of learning outcome assessment of undergraduate engineering students conducted by Stanford University and the World Bank, according to an Indian Express report.
The World Bank and Stanford University surveyed roughly 5,000 first-year and third-year B.Tech students from 200 randomly-selected public and private engineering institutes last year. These 200 institutes did not include the Indian Institutes of Technology or the IITs. Similar learning assessments were also conducted for engineering students in China and Russia.Detailed findings of this survey, which is part of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) supported by the World Bank, will be presented formally to the HRD Ministry this week, says the report.
Report of McKinsey: 95% of Indian engineers can’t even code
More than a decade ago, a McKinsey report said just a quarter of engineers in India were actually employable. Of late, some other studies put it at less than 20%. Last year, a survey by employability assessment firm Aspiring Minds said 95% of Indian engineers can’t even code. Though graduates from India’s premiere engineering colleges such as the IITs are still in demand, it is the thousands of other engineering colleges and ITIs which churn out millions of graduates every year whose employability is questionable.

Solution: 10,000+ Indian Engineers are Best Coders of Globe
There is one course of Programming for all have solved this problem for more than 10,000 engineering students who just not learn the art of coding, but also at the same time helped start-ups and industry with their knowledge in making best solutions. At present they are considered in the categories of BEST CODERS of the Globe.
The Course makers invite even the very beginners who do not have any idea of coding and then they make them pro in coding. The course name is Programming for All, which is handled by 18 Industrial experts who are IIT Alumni.
