Today the entire world is driven by the Technology. Hence day to day updation on the technology and its applications plays major role in every individual’s career. When it comes to training and education industry, unless or otherwise the updated Technology is learned with its industrial applications to cater the different needs it would be really difficult to get through in placements as the companies now looking on the Skilled Manpower rather than recruiting them and putting them into training before deployment.
As such, the industry needs a candidate with :
Strong Domain knowledge
Communication and Interpersonal Skills
Logical and Analytical skills
Project Development Skills
The major skill gap between the Industry and Academia is that the students are lagging in the above said industry needs and the curriculum is not industry centric.
Theoretical Education System and limited use to the technology and practical approach is the major gab. Lack of adequate infrastructure at some of the colleges in terms of Systems, Equipments etc is other considerable concerns.

In the era of globalization, manufacturing has undergone a paradigm shift in the way goods and products are produced due to large scale deployment of technology in the manufacturing process. In these circumstances local availability of competent workforce is one of the most decisive factors considered by investors in deciding on industry location. Hence it is imperative for any region to succeed is by making available high quality technicians of international standards to satisfy the demand of skilled manpower.
Given this scenario, it is important that the institutions create capacities to provide skilled manpower to attract and retain manufacturing industries in their respective region. Presently in India, Technical, Vocational Education and Training sector has not evolved to the international standards required by modern day manufacturing industries. Also there are challenges with the current system which does not allow it to scale up and upgrade the capacity to meet the demand for high quality skilled workforce. Therefore it becomes imperative that the current skill training institutes shall be upgraded with capacity to train in the relevant sectors especially, advanced and high technology manufacturing processes. These institutes shall primarily offer training in subjects involving advanced and emerging technology.

It goes without saying that if the technical education infrastructure is upgraded to meet the industry requirement then the trained students will command assured employment opportunities and higher pay packages. The industry efficiency too will go up since the industries do not have to invest additional resources on a new recruit's training and thus ultimately save significant social cost. India is evolving as a knowledge- based economy, therefore quality skill development also augers well for entrepreneurship.
