Quality education is need of the hour, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Governor ESL Narasimhan said.

Speaking after launching Smart Campus, a Skill Development Centre by TalentSprint in Gachibowli here today, the Governor said that the education sector is not producing the desired results and needs to be restructured.

He said that 'students coming out of colleges are turning into machines instead of human beings'.

Mr Narasimhan lamented that today's engineering graduates are unable to face interviews due to lack of desired skills. Thousands of graduates are coming out of colleges every year with zero skills, the Governor opined.

He also felt that with increasing digitisation in all aspects of life, memory power is decreasing in students forcing them to rely more on virtual world and said that changes are necessary in methods of teaching to ensure that students are fully equipped with required skills and are ready to face the real time world.

Dr. Santanu Paul, Co-Founder and CEO at TalentSprint, said, "Our move into a larger and smarter campus with digital, mobile and cloud integration is part of our ongoing journey to help one million youth pursue their career dreams. Our Smart Campus is both a hi-tech and a hi-touch facility. The hi-tech dimension involves beaming popular digital programmes across the length and breadth of the country, so job seekers anywhere can access them over web or mobile. The hi-touch dimension involves an unprecedented personalization of the learning experience, thanks to Tia, and a state-of-art experiential environment where college graduates can acquire skills via hands-on, work-driven learning at par with industry. In turn, this will lead them to exciting careers in both startups and established companies," Dr Paul said.UNI VV CS 2010
