The National Employability Report (NER) for Engineers by Aspiring Minds has now become an authoritative source for employability statistics on Indian engineers as well as an auditory mechanism for higher education in India. In this special three part series, we would explore the findings of third edition of NER-Engineers (2014). The report looks at the entire education to employment ecosystem which starts from understanding candidate aspirations, exploring their capability and competencies and finally analyzing the kind of jobs the students finally get.
The report is based on a sample of more than 1,20,000 engineering students from 520+ engineering colleges across multiple Indian states. All these candidates graduated in 2014. The analysis and findings of this report are based on the results of these students on AMCAT: Aspiring Minds Computer Adaptive Test, which is India's largest and only standardized employability test. AMCAT covers all objective parameters such as English communication, Quantitative aptitude, problem-solving skills, knowledge of domain areas such as Computer Science and Programming, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering etc. for determining employability in the IT/ITeS& other core engineering roles. Employability has been quantified based on the benchmarking studies done at various companies in different sectors by Aspiring Minds.
Findings - Employability by Region
In the first part of the series we would look at employability trends based on region to understand whether demographic factors of a region influence its employability. We look at employability percentages by grouping campuses (and students' permanent address) by their region, the regions being defined according to different demographic parameters.
|Software Engineer - IT Services||2014|
|Top 25 Percentile||Bihar+Jharkhand
|75 to 50 Percentile||Gujarat
|50 to 25 Percentile||Haryana
|Bottom 25 Percentile||Andhra Pradesh
In the next part of the series we would delve into the aspiration of engineers - what kind of job roles attract them, sectors and companies do they aspire to work in, what is their salary expectation etc. We would also try and understand how job aspirations of students change with their branch of study, gender and tier of city amongst others.
