With AICTE introducing 3D Printing & IoT courses in curriculums, Indian traditional educational system is adapting to modern technological trends. With this dynamic shift, a practical learn-by-doing approach is being given more emphasis over traditional theoretical.
Now, MHRD has taken the decision to introduce more practical classes in Engineering Semesters. But many of Indian educators are not trained or updated as per the technological trends as a result of which Indian students, the future Indian citizens are lagging behind in modern skill-sets. There are more than 7000 colleges in India out of which only selected few are capable of providing their students with proper infrastructure and extra academic, industrial exposure. This makes only 7% of the engineers graduating every year employable.
