The branches and applications of Computer Science are increasing day-by-day. Along with e-enabled services, applications in medical sciences, biological sciences, the arts, film industry etc are forever increasing worldwide. To support such diversity, the range of skills required and hence jobs in the computing industry are also increasing. Local market experience bears witness that fresh graduates lack knowledge of how Computer Science fits into the business world. These graduates have a lot of skills, however, they are at a loss as to how computers can be used as tools to increase business efficiency.
Local software development projects often fail. For such projects, it has been found that the brunt of project time is spent during final implementation. Sometimes it is found that client requirements have not been properly understood making a lot of re-engineering necessary in the final stages. Not only does this lengthen the development cycle, projects often fail at this point. This generally points to lack of proper analysis and design of the project requirement. Documentation for software development projects is often poor. The root of this is found in the severe lack of communication skills in graduates. They shy away from having to write often they don't know where to start.
