The Most Important Skills for Any Engineering Student That Makes Them Highly Employable

It is known fact that in India, every year, lakhs of students pass out from engineering colleges and institutes. Out of which 85% to 96% of these engineering students are unemployable because of lack of basic skills like communication skills in English language, technical skill, logical or rational ability, and professional skills etc, which we will discuss in details. Research has also proved that nearly 45% of the engineering students cannot understand even the details of their courses, which are in English text. There is a criticism from the experts that such skills need to be taught from the time when they were in their engineering college.

So, having a good score or cracking JEE Main 2016 only does not make you a successful engineer, you need to carry some important skills that will help you be employed and have successful career in your respective fields. Some of the important skills as mentioned as under:
