TTCN-3 Fundamentals for Academic Development ( TFAD) :

How well do colleges prepare students to meet the real challenges of the ever evolving software Industry? Easy guess is, it varies
Righty said, there is a huge variation from College to College and University to University. The objective of each and every HR Dept of College / University is to see that maximum of its students are placed.
After speaking to several recruiters in Software / Product companies, a common conclusion was reached -- hiring skilled graduates who have experience with state-of-the-art software test development products. In recent years, recruiters have been asked to find candidates who are proficient technicians who are also competent in interpersonal skills, leadership, learning agility, team building, and other areas. While those qualities are commendable and necessary, at the end of the day, businesses need people who can step in and be productive very quickly – literally from day one.

Grooming success: Integrating academics with business:

It is the prime responsibility of a Education Institution to groom a student such that s/he can enter the real world confidently, armed with the knowledge of latest tools and technology. While most educational institutions have developed Engineering degree programs for undergraduates and graduates, the quality / courses of those programs varies with the institution's ability to expose students to latest technology and tools. And that exposure is often dependent on private and state funding.
Now that Colleges and Universities are forced to have a tight control on their fiscal spending, the question which comes across their minds is:

How can they be ensuring that their graduates are given the top most priority during selection?

The obvious answer is – Partner with the Software Tool Development companies, adopt their technology into Colleges / Universities curriculum and enable the students. Not only they learn to adopt the technology in their early stages of career, but also can be a part of the open community development group and interact with hundreds and thousands of similar minds. It also open up opportunities in the National as well as International markets. Added advantage is that Qualitree being the only reseller of Testing Tech’s TTworkbench in India is always on the look out for resources capable to meeting their ending requirements ( as Qualitree’s clients buy the TTworkbench tool, they need trained resources). Qualitree has offices in India, US and Canada and the principal company Testing Tech has presence in Europe – so it is natural that a strong candidate be taken up for an assignment immediately after his / her graduation.
