The field of electronics and communication includes two vast domains which are complete and integrate different disciplines like electronics design, Integrated circuit design, automation, robotics, mobile communication, microwave engineering, RF engineering etc., such a multiplicity in these domains provides a bunch of career options to the students pursuing course in this field. With this much choices and opportunities any one can get a better job and a stable career.
But, the facts are different. A report in a national daily says,”75 percent engineering students in India are unemployable”. The reason behind the situation is the absence of the required skill-set for being employable. Students lack the skills and knowledge they are expected to acquire during their academic course even after practical sessions in college labs and non-customized industrial trainings.
One should think twice before applying for industrial internship or industrial training course keeping in mind that the motive behind training is to “impart practical knowledge, know-how of the industry, work ethics and most importantly the skills required to the trainees”.
Choosing the right place for internship is crucial as it is an opportunity to engage with the profession to which the student aspire in a realistic work environment they also appreciate and understand the practical application of their academic program and work with professional mentors and begin to build networks within their profession.
So, with a proper internship he or she is trained to be job-ready, even before completion of the course, thus increasing the student’s employment prospects.00A0
