The State government has decided to set up regional centres of Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) in Warangal and Nizamabad districts.
Minister for Information and Technology, KT Rama Rao, during a meeting with principals of private engineering colleges, industry experts and TASK officials on Friday said that the exercise of setting up TASK regional centres will be completed at the earliest.
The Minister said that high-quality training will be imparted to engineering students in rural areas and urged the management of engineering and pharmacy colleges in the State to cooperate with TASK to train students.
The state government is taking stringent action against private engineering colleges which are not up to the standards, he said.
Large numbers of engineering students graduate every year but they lack communication skills which have become their biggest drawback and asked colleges to look into the issue. If one year internships are provided in private companies, a system that is practised in Germany, the employability of such engineering students will improve, he added.
