ABSTRACT
The growth of technical education has been unprecedented since the privatization of higher education in India. Almost all technical colleges attract students who meet the required eligibility criteria for enrolling in an engineering college, but unfortunately they are drastically deficient in soft skills and English language proficiency, which in turn makes these students unemployable, even after they complete their four years engineering degree course.Students who have a positive attitude, effective communication skills, problem solving ability, effective time management skills, team spirit, self-confidence, ability to handle criticism - skills that are also known as soft skills as a whole; have better chances of survival in the tough engineering and corporate world, compared to the students who are lacking in soft skillsThis paper offers to analyze the various aspects of Soft Skills Training Methods adopted by engineering colleges in India. Through analysis and evaluation of various models, the paper puts forward the best suited models for Indian technical colleges. The study is based on experience of imparting soft skills training in technical colleges, feedback from students and faculty members, study of models adopted across, study of Industry expectations and students’ requirement in India.
