Today, every job is dominated by tools & softwares for automating the exhaustive manual calculative/manual works, hands on skills to use them is very important.
Another issue is student cannot related/imagine most of the theoretical fundamentals with their practical use, for example in electronics engineering: integration, differentiation, lapace/fourier/z transforms, emf concepts, calculations in signal & system/communication theory...etc. only Product design jobs use such detailed calculations & that too are automated using tools & softwares for design & various types of simulations. Understanding is important of-course, but, without having skills to use them in real job of todays' age, the engg. courses are proven to be in-effective & useless. Almost every student has to invest additional money to do industry specific courses, WHY Engineering Colleges doesn't impart those skills? It is really questionable & should be taken some corrective action on this. more
