Abstract: This paper tries to analyze the reasons behind stress among the students of engineering colleges in around Chennai. As academic stress mostly occurs to a student in the course of acquiring the educational knowledge and even after completing the course it continues since there is huge uncertainty regarding their future due to the incompetency among them to be employed in IT sector. Since IT sector is one of the major employers for the engineering graduate in the country, therefore, lacking employability in IT sector is a mirror image for total employability skills possessed by engineering students to be employable in any sector in India. About 80-90% of engineering students are under depression, therefore, in extreme cases, it is leading them to suicides, so an effective innovative intervention is needed to increase the employability skills among engineering students, which, will ensure a sustainable stress-free environment of learning that will not only help the students to be employed. Even it will ensure a healthy workforce that will enhance the country’s growth at large.
