Punjab starts skill development courses
189 views

In a shocking revelation, four out of every 10 engineers in India are unable to understand English, including day-to-day conversations and the written language, a survey has found. According to the survey by employability measurement company Aspiring Minds, the English comprehension level of engineering graduates in India is very poor. More than 25% of engineers do not even possess the comprehension skills required to understand the engineering school curriculum, the survey, which analysed the English skills of over 55,000 engineers in 250 different engineering colleges in India, said.

Around 36% of engineering graduates would be unable to read official reports and transcripts and derive information out of them, even when the information is explicitly stated, the survey noted. The findings of the survey are in sharp contrast to the fact that English fluency is considered one of the key qualities that recruiters look for during the interview process. The survey found that only 57% of the respondents can write grammatically-correct sentences in English and less than 48% can understand moderately sophisticated English words.

Moreover, candidates with English skills above the local average stand out from the crowd and garner 30-50 % higher salaries than similarly qualified candidates without English skills. Interestingly, not more than 30% of engineering students, who undergo stress and exhaustion while preparing for entrance exams, were acquainted with the word exhaust. In order to improve this situation, schools need to do a lot more and engineering colleges need to introduce bridge courses in the first semester and during semester breaks for students with deficient skills, the survey added.
