Need to improve quality of technical education: Pallam Raju

Quality of technical education in the country should be improved and graduates should be given skill training to equip them to meet industry requirements said Union HRD Minister, Pallam Raju at the inauguration of  the new regional office of All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE) in Thiruvananthapuram. He further added that ours is one of the largest technical education sectors in the world and a large number of engineering graduates pass out every year but the quality of the graduates passing out of colleges is not at par with international counterparts.
Pointing out the gap between industry and academia, the minister said the majority of the engineering graduates are not industry-ready and are unable to meet the expectations of the employers. In an attempt to bridge the gap, AICTE is looking forward to tie-ups with the industry and equip students with requisite skills. AICTE has recently had a tie-up with BSNL with the same aim. Palam Raju also emphasized that institutions in rural, backward and underprivileged areas should be given more focus as they may not be able to adhere to all stringent requirements of AICTE.
