BTECH/BE: Inherent Of Innovative India

Globalization and digitalization have become the interpreting words of the present world. Well, the world has witnessed that the advancement of technologies and engineers are the backbone of the unified and innovative era. When the pandemic outbreak brought social and economic life to a standstill, then technology has proven to be the best rescue for the situation. And the IT industry has experienced a boom, unlike before. Many innovative ideas have emerged and expanded the industry at minimal expense. Its immense potential has become the centre of the future.

The growing demand for engineers has boosted the popularity of the course. Currently, around 25% of the world’s engineers are in India. At the global level, engineering education is experiencing a standard shift from teacher centric to the student centric teaching-learning process, content-based teaching to outcome-based education, knowledge-seeking to knowledge sharing classrooms, teachers to facilitators, traditional engineering disciplines to interdisciplinary courses, chalk and board (lecture-based) learning to technology-driven learning and the list goes on.

There is a lot of competition amongst young minds to succeed and be a part of the growth and development of the country. India is providing its best to reinvent the technical education system with quality and opportunities. Millions of students take competitive exams such as JEE Main, Advance, CET, etc., for the engineering seats in top universities or colleges.

Considering the interest of the students for the course, it is the choice of the mass. Furthermore, India is one of the largest producers of Engineers in the world. With the accelerating number of technical institutes across the country, it has added several fields in the disciplines, such as computer science, mechanical, electrical, information technology, electronics, civil, and many more. Learners gain knowledge and skills from the specializations and use it in real-life circumstances. The application of the knowledge provides solutions for the living challenges in health, development, energy, climate, technology, etc.

Aspects for future technology
Every year there are some arising trends and requirements which demand modification in the curriculum. Some of the latest IT trends, such as Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain Data, Mobile Apps, Virtual Reality, Cyber Security, and others, have become the students’ equipment and building blocks of future technology.

Hence, the strengths and competencies of Indian IT’s core have attracted significant investment from major countries. The computer software and hardware segment in India attracted increasing foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows worth US$ 71.05 billion between April 2000 and March 2021. According to the data released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), the IT sector is in 2nd position in FDI inflows. In FY21, computer software and hardware excelled FDI investments, accounting for a 44% share of the total FDI inflows of US$ 81.72 billion.

India has become the primary off-shoring destination for it companies across the world

In the term of employment, Engineering is a revolutionary platform. More than one million engineers are graduating every year, and the count would be even more in the coming era. Indeed, it has created pressure on the industry to create jobs. Major Indian IT companies like Infosys, Wipro, TCS and Tech Mahindra are expanding their offerings and showcasing conveying ideas in blockchain and artificial intelligence to clients using innovation hubs and research and development centers to create unique offerings.

India has become the primary off-shoring destination for IT companies across the world. The nation has demonstrated its competence in delivering both on-shore and off-shore services to worldwide clients, and nascent technologies now offer a complete new range of opportunities for top IT companies in India. The industry is likely to grow to US$ 350 billion by 2025.

Flexibility of the course
An appeal of Prime Minister Modi with fourteen engineering colleges in eight states to begin providing degrees in regional languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi and Bengali, would make the course more approachable. “A tool has been developed for translating engineering course in 11 languages. This emphasis on mother tongue as the medium of instruction will instill confidence in the students from poor, rural and tribal background,” stated Modi.

Another explanation for being the most appealing course is that the degree serves as a signal. BTech graduates are in every sector, such as finance and consulting, IT, FMCG, Technical and non-technical areas. Therefore, the course focuses more on empirical ability and makes the graduates eligible to fit in any industry.

Since the global era is asking whether the world needs so many engineers, the answer is ‘yes.’ The world needs several well-equipped, talented graduates with the right competence. There are several job opportunities for those who have the potential. In addition, opening for self-employment is also abundance for innovative and energetic minds

The foremost step for the students is to pursue the discipline available in a reputed college and skill up, plan well and work hard. A critical complaint among the students is their interest in the domain. Well, reasonable efforts could be the solution and equip them adequately enough during their studies. Hence, the world always welcomes and appreciates talent, and engineering can assist in making it visible.
