95 per cent engineers in India not fit for software development jobs

A recent survey has claimed that 95 per cent of engineers in the country are not fit to take up software development jobs. The survey carried out by employability assessment company Aspiring Minds claims that only 4.77 per cent candidates can write the correct logic for a programme - a minimum requirement for any programming job.

Over 36,000 engineering students from IT related branches of over 500 colleges took Automata - a Machine Learning based assessment of software development skills - and over 2/3 could not even write proper code. The study further noted that while more than 60 per cent candidates cannot even write code that compiles, only 1.4 per cent can write functionally correct and efficient code.

Aspiring Minds CTO and Co-Founder Varun Aggarwal said, "Lack of programming skills is adversely impacting the IT and data science ecosystem in India. The world is moving towards introducing programming to three-year-old! India needs to catch up.''
