By Bizodisha Bureau, Bhubaneswar, September 29, 2018: Odisha government is likely to sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with US based tech giant, Oracle to upgrade the skill of scores of engineering and management graduates still ineligible to join the job market each year.

The officials have begun talks with Oracle to design training modules and programmes for the technical graduates passing out form engineering and management institutes in the state to equip them with requisite skills to make them employable.

The details of the tie-up with Oracle are still being worked out, officials added saying that the training modules will be designed depending on the course targeted.

Incidentally, some states already have signed MOUs with Oracle.

Odisha is looking to sign MoU with Oracle at the ‘Make in Odisha’ conclave to be held in November, officials added saying that training for the students will be aligned with the market requirements.

The state has scores of engineering and management institutions and draws students from across the country. But the pity is that the performance of some of them on placements is woeful. Through the collaboration with Oracle and other similar international companies, the state government looks to change this situation.
