NEW DELHI, FEB 24: Eight engineering colleges in Aurangabad have signed a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Tata Technologies to receive the benefits of “Ready Engineer” programme for their students. The MoU, which was signed on February 23, 2018 has been initiated at the Government College of Engineering, Aurangabad. The programme offers to bridge the gap between industry and academics and nurtures students to be workforce-ready by providing hands on exposure to technology. There have been some changes to the programme as it now offers technical domain training, soft skill training, employability assessment and National programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) courses to meet the future opportunities of Industry 4.0.

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) India Skills Report 2018 has recently provided an insight to the engineering employability of the nation. According to the report, 1.5 million engineering graduate every year, but only 52% are employable. The report also states that engineering courses linked with industry or corporate through internship or training usually score high on employability.

The listed colleges will be participating in the “Ready Engineer” programme presented by Tata Technologies

  • Government College of Engineering, Aurangabad
  • Jawaharlal Nehru Engineering College
  • Chatrapati Shahu College of Engineering
  • Deogiri Institute of Engineering & Management
  • Maharashtra Institute of Technology
  • Marathwada Institute of Technology
  • PES College of Engineering
  • Shreeyash College of Engineering & Technology

According to Tata Technologies, “Ready Engineer” programme will identify Mechanical Engineering students from the above listed colleges to be part of the training process. Application based training by industry experts will be provided by the programme in the Design Engineering domain and Computer-aided Design (CAD) tools, hosted on Tata Technologies’ learning tool i GET IT®.

Warren Harris, MD & CEO Tata Technologies has stated that the programme has been started to bridge the industry-academia gap and the core focus will be on making students job ready through experiential training. Similarly, Anubhav Kapoor, General Counsel and Company Secretary has commented that more than 12 million youth are expected to enter the India’s labor force over the next two decades and the current skill gap and industry demand for ready engineering can be filled through the “Ready Engineer” programme.

Dr. Pranesh Murnal, Principal, Government College of Engineering, Aurangabad has also extended his gratitude towards the programme as he believes it will help enhance the employability index of the students and also establish a link between the industry and the faculty which will also, later on, benefit the students.

NPTEL, KRACKIN and Aspiring Minds have been selected as the implementation partners for this programme. NPTEL is a joint initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore which provides e-learning through digital and video courses in engineering, the sciences, technology, management and humanities. KRACKIN, a startup based out of the NASSCOM 10000 Startup warehouse in Bengaluru, is a platform to help improve the industry-readiness of engineering students with timely industry interventions through their web and mobile platforms. Aspiring Minds, a talent assessment organization, helps to enhance soft skill and personality development through credible assessments and training.
