The vice-chairman of AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education), Prof. MP Poonia, believes that the PARAKH survey managed by the council will help colleges identify the learning gaps; accordingly, the students can become industry-ready during their courses.
As per the Indian Express reports, the survey conducted between 7th June and September has detected that the first year of engineering students are struggling more with math than other core subjects. The reports also recommended the structural reforms in the civil engineering branch, which straggle behind another regimen.
The industry is looking for candidates with the skills to solve problems and the ability to make quick decisions. The industries want students to be capable of critical thinking and offer fresh ideas. The primary objective of the PARAKH survey is to improve the students’ analytical skills.
