To develop technical skills of students, CREDAI is seeking to sign a memorandum of understanding with institutions like Anna University, SRM and VIT universities for third and fourth year students.
Just 20 percent of the 2.5 lakh engineering graduates passing out of colleges in Tamil Nadu every year are employable, said Sandeep Mehta, president, Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (CREDAI).
He said that the subject knowledge during four years alone is not sufficient, but other skills are also required to make them efficient employers.
He added that nearly 60 fourth year students would be trained as site supervisors by the member developers of CREDAI to improve their skills. We have also recommended Anna University to make onsite training part of the curriculum for the third year students. They would also be trained as site supervisors and site engineers during their fourth year.
