Abstract

India is the largest producers of engineers in the world. Tamil Nadu is yet another largest producer among the Indian States.  Engineering is considered to be the highest paying and prestigious job.  But when the graduated engineers come to the job market, they are dismayed for not finding promising chances.  The main reason is that they are lacking in hard skills and soft skills.  Though there is a great demand for engineers, the graduated engineers cannot make themselves suitable for the jobs as they are inadequately equipped. Still, the engineering studies seem to be a popular course among the students.  There are endless chances for the potential innovative engineering graduates as the demand is always on the boom.  There is also a great scope for self- employment. Now many universities and education intuitions have realized the need for greater reform in the education to create skilled people. Both the central Government and state Government are moving towards creating more job opportunities for the graduates. Thus students must develop their skills and must be wise in opting for the course. They must consider their suitability and interest, and be keen on understanding the changes that occurs in the society
