@agk. I think your thoughts are related to a specific country's education system. There is a lot of word out there with excellent oppurtunities to work practically. I do agree that, although the simulation tools are designed to assist engineers, they are helpful for the students in a intutive way. I have seen that even experienced design engineer (Leave alone the students) have made blunders in several systems reliying on simulation tools without an ability to logically validate the results using the basics/fundamentals/ theory. Student's time is precious in gaining these fundamentals. See the students who have won this competition are doing their PHD. By that time their fundamentals would have been strong. And the Synposys has become a tool like wrench or cutting player in the hands of an expert electrician. Which is more valuble electrician's knowledge or wrench ? :)

Students often demonstrate their talents in many ways. Their thinking power is great and if properly guided they will bring in innovative designs and products.Especially using CAD tools doing simulations, designing a product based on simulation outputs, coding for the design. But when it comes to real time product proto making their hands are tied due to many reasons like sourcing of required materials, fabrication, lack of expereince in manufacturing process and funds availability. that is why there needs lot of association between educational institutions and major industries.
