IT firms stock up on non-engineers -Economic Times

Who says IT is not for non-engineers? Move over IITians, here come the BSc and MSc grads who are developing software for the global market. Technology firms are now hiring non-engineers as well to meet their manpower requirements.

While it costs companies anywhere between Rs 80,000 and a few lakhs to train non-engineers to bring them on par with IIT and regional engineering colleges, the bonus is low attrition rates, availability of a motivated and skilled workforce and lower costs.
