The average of students getting campus placements from management, technical and engineering institutions is less than 60 per cent.
The information was shared by Union Minister of State for HRD Satya Pal Singh in response to a written question in Lok Sabha on Monday.
“As per the placement data of students available with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), average campus placement of the graduates from management, technical and engineering institutions has not reached up to 60 per cent,” Singh said in the Parliament.
“To encourage 100 per cent placements to the graduates, AICTE has launched outcome-based model curriculum for UG and PG level courses in engineering and management programmes to make it industry oriented. Institutions have now been made responsible for arranging internships of their students so as to enhance their employability,” he added.Posted in National
