Best engineers in Delhi, Bihar: National Employability Study
The National Employability Study 2011 by Aspiring Minds reveals that Delhi and Bihar champion and provide the best talent pool for IT Product, IT Services, KPO, BPO, Software Testing and Hardware Networking roles. The data released under the National Employability Study 2011 analyses the employability scores of over 1.2 lakh final year engineering graduates.
Himanshu Aggarwal, Co-Founder and Director of Aspiring Minds said, “Delhi has concentration of some well reputed institutes and has emerged as a hub of high quality talent.
While in some states over 3 in every 10 engineers are employable in IT Services industry, this falls drastically to less than 1 in every 10 of the engineers in some states. This dramatic fall in employability standards across states is a disturbing situation.
Not only is this detrimental to the education standards and economy of the country, but creates social risks of frustration among ‘qualified’ engineers. The strong correlation of poor employability to the number of colleges in a state show how states are concentrating on quantity rather than quality.”
The following chart shows the employability across states by IT Product and IT Services.
