National Programming Skills Report (Engineers) - 2017

As ugly as it may sound, but the statistics are true as revealed by Aspiring Minds’ latest report on programming skills of Indian engineers. The report is based on Automata – a Machine Learning based assessment of software development skills, administered on over 36,000 engineering students from IT related branches from 500+ colleges in the country.

It is the first ever large-scale study of the programming skills based on a simulated test of programming

Key insights from the report:

  • 95% graduating engineers are not employable for software development jobs.
  • Only 1.4% can write functionally correct & efficient code
  • More than 60% candidates cannot even write code that compiles
  • Only 4.77% candidates can write the correct logic for a program, a minimum requirement for any programming job
  • Programming skills is five times poorer for third tier colleges as compared to tier 1 colleges

Automata for programmers is the the world's smartest programming assessment that evaluates coding ability of candidates. Using simulated environment for C, C++, C#, Java, PHP, Python, SQL and over a dozen languages, Automata is the only tool to leverage advanced Machine Learning technology to evaluate code.
