Q Is English Fluency is important for an engineer?
Irrespective of the diversity of languages in India, a student must be fluent in English as the first language. In Engineering, all the subjects are taught in English language. For this reason, an expected level of proficiency in English language would be essential. This is important for them to step into a job market. Students lacking in this, suffers as they get rejected by companies during placement interviews due to inappropriate English skills. English act as a window for an engineer to gain knowledge of the developments in his/her field. To study abroad in some of the best universities in the world, students have to take up standardized tests to prove their English language proficiency. These tests play a major role for admissions to most of the universities overseas. These tests are measurements carried out to ensure that the students from non-English speaking countries are able to write, listen, and converse in English fluently.

Q. Do add on courses really make a difference on the employability of the student?
India is facing shortage of engineers with enough technical talent. According to NASSCOM, each year over three millions graduates and post graduates are added to Indian work force. Of these only 25% of technical graduates and 10-15% of other graduates are considered employable. Poor quality of education, obsolete curriculum and aged infrastructure are the major reasons for the skill gap. As a result, the students who graduate are not well equipped with the required skill set and the companies incur addition cost to train these fresh graduates and newly hired employees. The students who are able to bridge this gap and offer themselves ready to work on projects from day are surely preferred employee for corporate. Unlike other fields, technology is constantly evolving and to keep pace with this change students need to look outside the university course, to get access to the cutting edge technology exposure.
