We are witnessing a serious concern with regard to more and more students opting for CSE/ IT Courses and core courses are not being preferred. The core of growth engine lies with manufacturing sector and few core sector companies could join forces together and work closely with the academia in bringing positive transformation.

Under curriculum redesign, soft skills are being included as part of the credit courses and students are bound to complete them. Specialization in minors is being brought into engineering education from this year. More seats are added into new and emerging areas and about 24,000 seats.

Prof. BS Murty, Cornvenor, Education & Skills Panel, CII Telangana & Director, IIT-Hyderabad said that many colleges are introducing new courses and changing current courses according to the industry needs.

Industry could collaborate with Institutions on Professors of Practice program where industry experts could take up few courses in the academic institutions. Also academic experts should be allowed to take up long term internships in the Industry. Telangana should become a dream destination for students in higher education.

Sameer Goel, Chairman, CII Telangana Said that Education system in India focuses more on knowledge acquisition and less on skills development. However, employers expect their new hires to become productive as soon as they join the organization.

Thus, there is a clear case for effective On the Job Training (OJT) for youth to become employable. The rapid pace, at which technological innovations are taking place, has brought OJT to centre stage of training. Collaboration between Academia & Industry will foster the innovation.

This will find the right solutions to the right problems and also create value for the Institution, Industry as well as the society for Academic Excellence.
