The education sector in India is witnessing major growth while the country’s economy is also expected to grow at a fast pace and India could potentially emerge as a global supplier of skilled manpower. However, despite these encouraging statistics, a major segment of graduates remain unemployable. As per the National Employability Report Engineers, 2019 by Aspiring MInds, the employability of Indian engineers continues to be painfully low with more than 80% engineers unemployable for any job in the knowledge economy.
