Abstract: In the present scenario, recruitment of graduates has become a greater challenge for the industry due to the enormous supply of students in the job market. The selection process is becoming very rigorous these days as compared to the earlier years, wherein only the degree certificates were sufficient. Today, the recruiters expect the graduates to possess additional competencies and skill sets which make them unique, so as to get selected during the selection process. newline A number of research studies show that most of the graduates and the educational institutions where they study are unable to meet the demands of the job market. Further, the NASSCOM report prove that the number of students graduating every year is greater than the number of students getting employed. Even if they are employed, the salary package is not commensurate to the qualification they have achieved. newline With this in mind the current study has made an attempt to explore the employability status of engineering students belonging to Private Self-Financing Engineering Colleges and Private Deemed Universities. The respondents for the study include final year engineering students from both these types of institutions. HR professionals belonging to IT and non IT firms also form the part of the study. newline The study investigates whether the independent variable (knowledge, skills, ability), moderator variable (teaching, training, infra structure, culture) and self confidence variable play a major role in enhancing the employability status of engineering students. The study further explores the moderating role of institutional factors in studying the relationship between the independent variable (individual factor) and the dependent variable (self confidence). newline newline newline newlineUsing convenient sampling method, nine hundred and fifty final year engineering students are selected as the respondents for the study. Seven hundred students belong to PSFEC affiliated to Anna University and the other two hundred and fifty students are from PDU. In both the types of institution,
