Abstract: Technical education in India is at the cusp of transformation after its rapid growth in last two decades. Along with the general requirements of improving quality of technical education, three additional but supplementary aspects focused upon are skill development, knowledge creation and improving employability. Lot of reported research is available on improving quality but very less research is carried out on aspects like skill development, knowledge creation and employability and more important taking all four dimension of technical education together is rather rare. In this paper, faculty responses from degree-level engineering institutions in India have been sought and analysed to find out the opinion of the faculty members on aspects like quality of education and employability of graduates. The analysis of responses reveals that skill development and knowledge creation are the two important outputs of quality education which lead to the employability of the students.
