Well.. thts wht i am.. a certified mechanical engineer. I have been working in one of india's best engineering company. These are the companies that recruit the best talents available from all the leading colleges across the country. And how exactly are they being utilised.... ????? ( this dsnt really mean my being counted as one of india's best talents.. there are always exceptions.... ! really... :) )
i've seen many of my brightest class mates being put in to the departments where there is nothing really to conquer.. there are guys who have won at national and internatinoal level technical competetions and instead of putting them whtever little origninal technical things the indian companies are doing, they are put in to what may be callesd routine clerk-like work. I really wonder whether.. we really do not want any self sufficiency as far as technology is concerned.. or may be they are dumb, simply not able to identify the talent available. And not many of them are expected to continue much longer.Brain Drain, which we percived as the phenomenan of the previous generation, seems obvious.Brain Drain, which we percived as the phenomenan of the previous generation, seems obvious. Added to these, there are software firms which recruits the non-IT engineers as well.
I wonder whether the present system of education is really relevant in the rapidly changing present scenario. The softwares are taking all the good technical talents. And others arent relly interested much either..
With the software boom expected to continue for ateast some more time.. those people should find some ways to fill up the huge manpower requirement.. anyways.. they are turning a non - IT engineer in to a software professinal just in 6-8 months.. it should not take more than 12 months to turn the normal commerce/science graduates with good communication skills to be employable.
May be this will help building the huge gap between the graduates and shortage of employable people.. !!
