NASSCOM NAC – Tech

NASSCOM Assessment of Competence – Technology  ( NAC – Tech )

From October graduating engineering students across the State will get to take the NASSCOM Assessment of Competence – Technology ( NAC – Tech ) which will award them grades certifying their employability level depending on how ‘industry ready’ they are.

“We have tied up with Attest, an arm of Aptech Computer Education, that will conduct the test through various leading retail outlets across the country, starting with Chennai,” said K. Purushottaman, regional director, NASSCOM. While it would be conducted separately for colleges that have registered for it, students can also apply for it individually.

Uniform Evaluating Pattern

“The test would not only help us reach students of colleges from where we normally do not recruit, but also set up a uniform evaluating pattern of all engineering graduates, besides creating a standard pool of professionals for the industry to choose from,” says Mr.Purushottaman.

Final year engineering students of all branches can soon start registering online. After the test, they would also get a print out of their scores.

While a part of the test will assess the communication fundamentals of the candidates, including his / her verbal ability and reading comprehension, there would also be questions on visualisation capabilities and logical reasoning.

Another section will focus on the engineering curriculum, particularly the core subjects of the student’s respective branch. “Companies, as part of their off campus recruitment procedure, will ask for the test scores from next year,” says Mr.Purushottaman.

The IT industry that has around 3.5 million workforce now is expected to employ about 10 million by 2020. A few years ago, NASSCOM had released the results of a survey, which said that only about 25 per cent of the engineering graduates were employable without appropriate on job training.

The test, say NASSCOM sources, will not only help software companies improve their campus training programmes but also provide colleges a comprehensive picture of the knowledge level among their students.

Encouraging Response

Though heads of many engineering colleges have expressed their reservations with some aspects of the test, NASSCOM sources say the response of the students is encouraging. “This would give students from lesser known engineering colleges an opportunity to compete against their counterparts from reputed institutes,” said Mr.Purushottaman.

A similar testing format to evaluate the employability levels of BPO employees is in process, and will be ready soon, he added.

MEPCO NASSCOM Assessment Test

MEPCO Engineering College to Host first NASSCOM Assessment Test

Amidst mixed response received by the National Association of Software and Services Companies ( NASSCOM ) from colleges for conducting the NASSCOM Assessment of Competence – Technology ( NAC-Tech ) and NASSCOM Assessment of Competence Test ( NAC Test ), the first NAC – Tech will be held at MEPCO Engineering College, Sivakasi, on September 7, 2011.

NASSCOM Regional Director – Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Pondicherry –  K. Purushothaman told The Press Person that more than 400 students would take the test that day to enter the next level placement activity in the top 20 Information Technology ( IT ) and IT Enabled Services ( ITES ) companies in India.

Of the nearly 2.5 lakh recruitments expected to be made by the IT and ITES companies in the country during this academic year, these 20 companies will be recruiting nearly 60 per cent of the freshers, Mr. Purushothaman said. So far 24 colleges in Tamil Nadu had evinced interest in conducting the test. “We have sent letters to nearly 1,000 colleges.”

Mr. Purushothaman said there were many other colleges whom the companies could turn to meet their requirements and it was up to the colleges to adapt themselves to the test to ensure a place for their students in those companies. Companies have welcomed the test, he said.

While NASSCOM initially planned to conduct the tests in colleges that had adequate computers and facilities it would be launching the retail mode of conducting them at select internet centres across the country in a couple of weeks, he said. The decision followed representations from students.

The vendor –  company which will be conducting the tests across the country – is in the process of identifying about 300 such internet centres in different cities, he said.

All the districts in Tamil Nadu would have at least one such centre in addition to the regular centres in colleges while places with high concentration of colleges could have more, he said.

Students of rural colleges in Namakkal, Rasipuram and Tiruchengode expressed confidence that these tests would be a common platform for rural students to enter top companies.

“Jobs in those companies will no more be restricted to students from select colleges in select cities,” said M. Amritha ( 21 ) a final year Computer Science Engineering student.
