“Industries require candidates who are up to date with the latest technology trends to reach expectations. It is proved that students with knowledge other than syllabus are being recruited by multinational corporations,” said K Suryanarayana.

Suryanarayana insisted on soft skills, communication skills and extra qualifications that are key points to be ‘industry ready’.

“A student has to plan the four-year engineering course in an efficient way to carve out a good career. Self-study is another best way a student can make himself worthy of a position in any industry or corporation. Subjects like CST, Ruby on Rails, Dot net and alike are not mentioned in the syllabus but are quintessential requirements for nailing a job,” he said.

On the expectations of the industry, he mentioned, “Technical skills, out-of-the-syllabus knowledge must be assimilated. A student must be well-versed with smart technology, social media technology and cloud computing,” said Satyanarayana.

When asked about future employment prospects for out-going graduates and unemployed engineers, Satynarayana said that candidates who are unemployed must be learning several programming language and additional support skills. “One should take up any chance that comes their way in order to go a long way in the future. There would be many opportunities in the coming four to five years,” he concluded.
