Female tech students are keener than male students to learn and strengthen new emerging technologies, according to the new study.
A shift in focus on technical know-how than aptitude and communication skills has also been observed as well as more focus on part of the universities/institutions to help students be placed in Product based companies such as Facebook, Google, etc. instead of merely training students for coding, said the new report by Hyderabad-based byteXL – an experiential learning platforms for IT.
Focusing on the need for upskilling or skilling for immediate tech jobs, the study has made some interesting revelations in IT education and skilling trends across byteXL’s purview of tier 1, 2 and 3 institutes.
According to the study findings, while there is a growing awareness among students of the kinds of courses they must choose viz., the New wave of technology such as AI, UX/UI, Full stack, Cloud, there is a lack of the right curricula that can deliver the same in alignment with the industry needs. That is why students are looking up to specialized platforms.
Based on the trends, 2022 is anticipated to witness growing interest among the students towards emerging technologies including Full stack, DevOps/ cloud computing, UI/UX, Backend, IoT, AI/ML, Cyber Security, and programming languages like Python that can help in creating a base for Emerging Technologies. Students are also keen to learn additional certification courses like AWS, MS Azure.
“It’s a known fact that the industry is facing the challenge in terms of the gap in the skillsets of the available candidates than the required skill. The report aimed at understanding the changing thought process of the education institutes and students as they are realizing this issue and taking up effective measures to become Career Ready by acquiring the domain knowledge on the new-age technologies,” Karun Tadepalli, Founder and CEO of byteXL commented on the findings of the report.
The specialized programs run by the experts are gradually showing positive signs. The students are showing growth in their assessments on new-age technologies which is a great sign of enhancement in their employability quotient.
“This year is certainly witnessing their keen interest in emerging technologies like Full stack, DevOps/ cloud computing, UI/UX, Backend, IoT, AI/ML, Cyber Security, among others,” he summed up.
