  4. Technology gap analysis and to enhance the employability of the students.

The conclave will conclude with the recommendations as reflected in the deliberations.

India is going digital at a breakneck pace. Emerging technologies have disrupted the traditional ways of doing business, across sectors, and have ushered in an era of not just digital transformation, but also a focus on innovation and ground-breaking creativity. But is the pipeline for Indian innovation ready and prepared to take the country’s digital innovation journey forward? There has been a significant gap between industry requirements and academic preparation. Indian society places high value on theoretical knowledge. A hands-on practical approach to education or even real-time industry experience is usually limited. It has been forecasted that by 2030, India will be one of the youngest nations of the world. There will be 140 million people in the college going age group. One out of every four people will come out of an Indian education system. However, as per Nasscom, only 25 percent of technical graduates and 10-15 percent of other graduates are considered employable. Alarming statistics to say the least!

Direct Outcome:

Structuring an efficient blue-print for an ideal Industry-Academia collaboration. As jobs become more and more specialized, the shortage of fresh graduates who fit the requirements of industry is emerging as a significant and complex challenge to our country’s growth and development. Yet, academicians may believe that education has a greater purpose to fulfill than purely satisfying industry needs. Simultaneously, increasing competition in the market is making it necessary for companies to innovate and seek under-explored resources like academia for competitive advantage over their peers.

Lateral Outcome:

Divergent goal, mutual benefits and networking opportunities.
