I don’t understand why the curriculum/syllabus at engineering colleges is not even close to the requirements of the industry/Market?

A simple example. We see buildings built in our area/locality almost every month. Due to less available of land, many buildings have common sides or restrictions of not exceeding their property line. One such common feature is an eccentric footing.

Now when an eccentric footing is so common, why is it not taught or even asked in examination? An exam problem would always ask to solve a concentric footing. Unless we are exposed to what’s the current challenges at site, how will we learn to deal with such cases?

What are the solutions to such cases of eccentric footings. what are the ways in which we can satisfy max and min pressures below footings within limits are never discussed in classrooms.

One more related issue to this is : In classrooms and exams, all the data is giving before hand for solving. Like SBC, design load to be considered etc. When SBC is not available at site, what needs to be done, is never taught at colleges. Students are never made to think outside the box.

What type of loads to be considered for footing design, whether ultimate or service and why!

Also integration of industry grade softwares to help in the design process is also a major miss by the curriculum.

There are many many examples like this. Our Curriculum/Education system needs major changes
