4.6 VTI Graduate Job-Market Survey 1993-94

The Bangladesh Technical Education Board through an agreement with the Directorate of Technical Education has mounted a study on the job-market survey for VTI graduates. The data collected through a well-designed questionnaire by the trained investigators from 285 industries have been tabulated. The main sectors of industries and services covered by the survey are: engineering, textiles, construction, petrochemicals, food preparation and preservation, gas, water, electricity, transportation and communication. The total number of employees of these industries are 199,080.

The distribution of these employees in different categories shows that
