Bridging the Demand & Supply Gap in the Engineering Ecosystem
According to the Talent Supply Report 2020 by NASSCOM, nearly 76% percent of Engineering students graduating every year are found to be unemployable, which calls for immediate intervention. The ARISE On-campus program is a comprehensive upskilling intervention conceptualized to bridge the demand and supply gap in the IT-ITeS sector.
Initiated in early 2015-16, the program has been working extensively for marginalized Engineering students of Tier-2 and Tier-3 Engineering colleges in partnership with the NASSCOM Foundation. This year-long program comprises of 250-320 hours of technical, behavioural training, and hands-on learning sessions on advance computing/ latest technologies. The program is dovetailed in the regular academic calendar of the colleges. Some major milestones are – success in third party assessment, certification and placement in core engineering domain with a higher pay package.
This ARISE initiative has touched the lives of more than 10,000 students to date and made a substantial change in the lives of 3000 plus beneficiaries who have been effectively placed in core engineering domains. One of the most important impacts of the program has been the collaborative understanding of the various aspects of delivering quality education amongst all key stakeholders.
