Inauguration of the Novel Digital Skilling Initiative Sarada Vilas Educational Institutions SVEI

“It’s time to provide digital skills training to every graduating student, regardless of their field of study,” said D. N. Vasuki, IT consultant and member of the board of the National Institute of Engineering in Mysuru. Speaking at the inauguration of a new digital skills initiative organized by Sarada Vilas Educational Institutions, Vasuki said that about 30 million students graduate every year from different disciplines across the country. He said it is the responsibility of educational institutions to provide these students with the skills they need to succeed in the digital economy.

In today’s climate, with the implementation of the National Education Policy and the abundance of job opportunities in the industrial and service sectors, students should learn digital skills like social media and digital marketing, business, or data analytics.”43% of the jobs available in the market are non-tech jobs, so such digital skills are essential for non-engineering graduates, whether they’re studying science, law, or pharma,” he said.

Delivering a technical talk, Ram Bhupal Reddy of MaxMunus Solutions said that maintaining a good customer relationship requires digital skills, especially in the product and service sectors. “More and more users are going online and students seeking jobs should build relevant digital competencies,” he added.

Referring to the recent surveys conducted by management consulting groups, Prof. G.L. Shekar, an educationist, said that India would be the global leader in providing a talent pool, which is estimated at 20% of the world’s working population by 2047.
