All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), in collaboration with the market players, is mulling over a plan to make students industry-ready. While many engineering pass-outs take industry training from private institutes to brighten their chance of getting a good job, the AICTE is contemplating a specialised module to add this in the curriculum.
"However, how this shall be incorporated in the curriculum or will it be a specialised six months after the traditional engineering course, are some things that will be clear soon," said an AICTE official, requesting anonymity. There are such 'finishing school' training modules running at some institutes such as IIT-Roorkee and NIT. "These modules, which cater to students lagging behind in job market, are conducted during summers in collaboration with industries. These customised modules are being studied by AICTE officials," said the official. "It will take some time to finalise the plan. For example, only in a single stream of engineering like chemical, there will be several branches. Hence, each sector will have certain customised requirements to be fulfilled," he said.
