The data revealed by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for 2015-16, portrays a gloomy picture of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s home state Gujarat, as less than 20 percent of graduate engineers get jobs in the state.

Ironically, in certain branches like civil engineering, the campus placement figure is abysmally low at 5 percent.

In a further breakup, data reveals that out of 11,190 students who passed computer science only 3,407 got placed.

For the same year, out of 17,028 students who cleared mechanical engineering course, only 4,524 got placed.

Out of 71,000 engineering seats across the state, 27,000 seats remained vacant in 2016 in the admission process conducted by the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC).

Experts say the excess supply of engineering graduates against demand, quality of education, huge gap between curriculum and industry needs and lack of soft skills are some of the reasons for poor campus placement record of graduating engineers.
