Many graduates have good grades, but lack the skillset to hit the ground running in an organization. This, perhaps, is the reason why many graduates are unemployed. Do you think Schools should be blamed for this?  What should be done to augment the value of the Nigerian graduate to the industry using Applied Science and Engineering graduates as reference point?

Yes the Schools Government Agencies,also the Industries should be blamed for the incompetence of graduates the situation is like a broken home. in a broken home the children will always feel the absence of the father or mother if one is missing. in the case here the enrolment of students into universities to study engineering is also for the benefit of the companies and the government. Government needs to create and supervise a cordial relationship between the Engineering schools and manufacturing companies so that schools can train graduates based on the dictates of current practices and trends while company retirees can go back to school and help train the next generation. syllabus in schools are mostly outdated when compared with what's obtainable in the industry. school system forces students to cram outdated theory in other to pass exams forgetting to instill the right training and discipline that will help solve problems in the society. Yes we have the schools too.

I think school should share in the blame while the rest should go to the government.
I believe schools should do more than just loading students with course contents but rather be more practical on how they deliever their course contents. Schools should also partner with relevant corporate bodies and industries to showcase what their students do. The companies will then take things on from there with the student even after school.
The government should diversify the economy to increase job opportunities.
