Each year India produces over 2.5 million university graduates, of which 20 percent are technical graduates. According to NASSCOM, only 25 percent of these technical graduates are considered employable by IT and ITeS companies. The report also states that India’s IT sector will face a potential shortfall of half a million skilled professionals annually. To address this shortfall, IMER seeks to form a strong industry-academia alliance to nurture and further hone student skills.
