IT faces shortage of computer science engineers

Infosys hired 20,000 to 22,000 people from non-computer science backgrounds last year. "Today, by and large, majority of the engineering graduates that we take come from non-computer science backgrounds. We have electrical engineers, mechanical engineers and civil engineers. Given that this country is on high economic growth path, we have come to a stage where we should take only computer science people and we don't take away engineers who can build factories, dams and power plants," said Murthy at the tenth Annual Convocation International Institute of Information Technology, Bangalore (IIIT-B).
Murthy feels that there is a need to chalk out a plan to facilitate opportunities for state governments, the Central government and other inter state institutes to start more institutes which would focus on technical education.
