58% fresh engg graduates dont get placrment

This year. a Hindustan Times report said today.

Is this true? If so what happens to thousands of pvt engg colleges?

Should these fresh grads be reskilled? more  

Course content should be made industry specific & practical based, the written exam culture only tests the memorizing power, but, not usable knowledge. Course content is too much exhaustive & un-directional which overwhelms the students from so much information & most students as well parents incorrectly considers passing such exhaustive memorizing exams & courses as success, students proudly starts displaying Er. in front of name irrespective of actual skills. The practicals are mostly in groups & same format & questions are been repeated every year, in most of the engg. colleges, lab assistants do most of the work in setting up experiments & students just remain as users of those, noting readings in group to fill up their practical registers. The school & colleges has a culture of mugging up answers of specific questions, if the question is modified or written in other words, student gets confused. It should be more of training rather than study/lecture course. Technical fields are practically done jobs. Let the course exposes lesser subjects, but, the training should be intended to impart skills based on usable knowledge, instead of just describable/written theoretical knowledge to score marks.

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  
It is true. Quality will ensure survival. If Engineering colleges ca n not produce quality no students will like to go to those colleges. Unfortunately students also are not serious about studies. Thy have to become self reliant to a great extent. Knowledge is acquired by self study and not by class room only. more

Unfortunately most engineering colleges are operating as shops and because of poor admissions they have SALE these days with 70-80% discounts. Education provides only degrees and very less knowledge and as such the product is unemployable most of times. Graduates must re-skill themselves and concentrate on gaining knowledge and up gradation more  
These engineering colleges will go the way, a manufacturer goes, who does not produce acceptable quality materials. And those engineers should definitely try to reskill themselves. If they have passed their exams by unfair means without studying they too will reach their deserved destination. Reskill-reskill and reskill.
It should also be understood that the knowledge is multiplying in geometrical progression. Those who are skilled, talented, educated will also have to continuously update themselves. Remember the competition is fierce. It will be more so in coming times. more
