A Review of Knowledge Management Based Career Exploration System in Engineering Education

By Varekan Keishing S. Renukadevi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jan. 2016

Knowledge sharing has become an important tool in every organization’s success story today. Various knowledge management applications has been carried out recently in many sector like health care, university, banking, construction etc. and it has brought significant improvements. However minimal research is done on career development and as such Knowledge management in career exploration in Engineering Education has not been carried out till date. In India, most of the curriculum and pedagogy does not suit with the real time job environment and this caused many graduates to remain unemployed every year. To meet the gap, this paper attempts to highlight the works on the various existing career exploration and knowledge management techniques. The author collected relevant literature from 2010 to 2015 with the objective to find out a way to combine the two disciplines of career exploration and knowledge management to enhance the career awareness and career exploration system with the application of knowledge management techniques. From the study, the researcher found four conclusions: (i). Education and work/career are separated into different world; (ii). Career exploration enhances student’s career awareness; (iii). Knowledge management technique adds efficiency and enhances curriculum; (iv). The research efforts in knowledge management (KM) and career exploration are sparse and no such literatures are available on knowledge management in career exploration currently. This research may add to the development of an efficient knowledge management based career exploration system for engineering education.
