We are all aware how the processes of globalization and economic liberalization have combined to create new avenues of opportunities, unprecedented in scale and undreamt of in scope, for those who have knowledge and skills that the market economy demands. Economic growth has also meant huge expansion of government’s responsibilities, both in terms of promoting social welfare and in ensuring enforcement of regulations that are required to prevent malpractices. Together, these important developments have created challenges as well as opportunities for the young to secure remunerative private employment or to enter prestigious public service, provided they possess the required academic ability and personality traits. It is however equally clear that a university degree by itself no longer guarantees jobs in the highly competitive employment market.
It is in this context that Amal Jyothi Engineering College has introduced a number of innovative programs to create awareness of students about career opportunities that are emerging and to equip them suitably to succeed in competition for securing the best jobs that are available. The first set of programs is intended to enhance employability by giving engineering students special training to improve their communication skills and personality development; the second set of programs are focussed on increasing their awareness of opportunities to enter superior careers through competitive tests and training them thoroughly to succeed in competitions. A few of the important programs that Amal Jyothi has proposed to introduce during the academic year 2013-14 are briefly discussed below:
GATE Coaching: GATE score is an essential requirement for entering highly paying and attractive Executive careers in leading NAVARTNA Public sector Companies such as ONGC, NTPC, BHEL etc. and for pursuing higher studies and securing teaching assignments in important engineering colleges;
Communications and Business English program: Major private sector companies that recruit engineering graduates either through campus placement or on the basis of job applications examine not only technical knowledge of students or percentages scored by them in final examinations, but also do assess their communications skills, general awareness and levels of self confidence apart from observing attitudinal orientation of students in the course of group discussion and personal interview etc. The common complaint of company officers visiting campuses is that engineering students are extremely lacking in these qualities; they say only 10 to 15 per cent graduates are employable.
Coaching for Civil Services and other UPSC examinations: Not many people are aware that recent changes introduced by the UPSC in the pattern of Civil Services Examination considerably help engineering and science graduates as new subjects such as Numerical Ability, Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation are likely to prove easier for them rather than for Arts or Commerce students. It is also seen that even engineering graduates are not aware that the Indian Engineering Service, equal in status and pay to the IAS and the IPS is open only to them and further, that they can compete with other science graduates for entry into Indian Forest Service which is not open to Arts and Commerce graduates. Engineering students can therefore take advantage of these favourable factors provided they receive proper training to emerge successful in these prestigious examinations.
Coaching for Bank Examinations: In an article entitled “Banking Boom” that may be seen on the Education Plus page of the Hindu newspaper issue of 19th August, there is a detailed discussion on the huge scope of employment in the banking and insurance sectors in India. It is stated that Public Sector banks alone will hire more than 300,000 people in the next few years. Reserve Bank of India is planning to open up the banking sector by granting new licences to spread banking further. Insurance companies are also multiplying and their operations are extending to areas so far not covered, following the Government’s recent decision to raise the limits of foreign equity participation in insurance business. These financial sector jobs are easily available to engineering graduates both in the general cadres as also in the specialised cadre like IT specialists, Valuers and as Technical Consultants.
Coaching for Staff Selection Commission recruitment to Revenue and Enforcement: Along with expansion of the financial sector, the Government is also greatly concerned about the urgent and important need for improving collection of revenue that is sorely needed for expansion of infrastructure and for supporting social welfare schemes like MNREGS and food subsidies. There are only two ways of improving revenue collections: one, by strengthening the Income Tax, Customs and Central Excise departments; and two, by checking corruption, black money and by preventing economic offences like smuggling and black marketing. In the coming days, therefore, these revenue enforcement functions will receive the highest attention and have the maximum expansion. The UPSC recruits a large number junior officers every year to departments like Income tax, Customs, Income Tax, CBI, Audit etc through its branch the Staff Selection Commission which conducts competitive examination for graduates on the same pattern as Civil Service Examination, but on the basis of a less extensive syllabus.
It is evident that there is no dearth of jobs for engineering graduates, even if the manufacturing or IT sectors may face temporary setbacks as we have been experiencing in the last couple of years. The very same process of fluctuation can also create alternative employment opportunities both in the private and the public sector. What is required is sustained and methodical training that will enable and equip young graduates to compete successfully in all India competitions. It is relevant to remember that the basic preparations for all such exams are more or less standardised and are common: these exams test the general awareness of candidates about current events of importance to the economy, governance and environment, assess their proficiency in English language and comprehension, basic mathematical skills and Logic and Reasoning. There is, no doubt, acute competition in such exams but with proper training, most subjects are such as can be easily mastered by engineering graduates.
Amal Jyothi authorities after careful consideration of all the facts and circumstances discussed above have charted out a well designed series of coaching programs that specifically cater to the needs of each individual competitive examination or test. Eminent and experienced faculty has been entrusted with the responsibility of training and equipping engineering students, in such a way that right from the first year of their joining the graduation course, every motivated student who seriously wants to compete in the national level competitions (on conclusion of their 4 year degree or the 2 year M tech course), is able to get regular training on week days and holidays with the added facility of receiving individual counselling throughout their academic career. Coaching programs are not crash courses that burden them and are conveniently spaced to give students enough time for leisure and self study.
