Shortage of science grads vexes Japanese companies

Businesses plan recruiting uptick in 2020 as more industries pursue tech talent

TOKYO — Companies recruiting technology majors from Japanese universities are bracing for another year of missed targets as the supply of graduates fails to keep pace with broad demand for such skills as AI engineering and data analysis.

Businesses aim to hire 11.7% more science and technology college students graduating in spring 2020, marking a sixth straight year of double-digit increases, according to a Nikkei survey released Friday. This is 7.5 percentage points higher than the increase for humanities majors. In addition to talent in cutting-edge fields, mechanical engineers and pharmacists are also seeing brisk demand.

But for new hires joining companies this spring, employers have failed to fill more than 5% of their quota for job offers to science graduates, representing an increase in a supply-demand gap that has persisted since data collection began in 2008. By contrast, businesses have hired more humanities majors than planned every year since 2017. If the shortfall continues, Japanese businesses will lack the talent they need to compete effectively.

In overall hiring, major companies plan to recruit 7.9% more fresh university graduates next spring — a smaller increase than in 2019, but still a 10th straight year of growth. Hiring by nonmanufacturers is set to grow 9.6%, up 2 points from a year earlier amid a labor shortage in industries such as ground transportation. But the rise among manufacturers comes to just 4.5%, a 5.7-point slowdown.

Sony aims to hire 320 new science and technology graduates in 2020, around the same number as this year. About 40% will go to its semiconductor business, particularly its highly competitive image sensor division. The company is scrambling to secure engineers so it can expand new businesses such as artificial intelligence and automotive equipment.

Tiremaker Bridgestone is focusing on data scientists. The company plans to recruit 100 by mid-2019, up 35% from last year, to work on projects such as a planned service using sensor data from tires to make maintenance more efficient.

Technologies such as AI are driving a “transformation in industry, and the range of industries that need science graduates is broadening,” said Hisashi Yamada of the Japan Research Institute.

The Japanese government projects a shortage of 50,000 engineers in advanced technology fields next year.

Wanted: Parsi Engineer for Mumbai Metro


The HP Wadia trust, managing the fire temple, has asked MMRC officials to find a ‘Parsi civil engineer’ for conducting the survey from inside the temple as non-Parsis are not allowed inside the Parsi fire temple.

The Mumbai Metro Rail Corporation (MMRC), which is constructing the Colaba-Bandra-Seepz Metro-3 line, has a curious task on its hands. It is currently on the hunt for a ‘Parsi civil engineer’ to conduct a pre-construction structural survey for the underground metro corridor.

Reason? The alignment of the underground Metro-3 corridor at Chira Bazar in south Mumbai runs parallel to a Parsi fire temple. The HP Wadia trust, managing the fire temple, has asked MMRC officials to find a ‘Parsi civil engineer’ for conducting the survey from inside the temple as non-Parsis are not allowed inside the Parsi fire temple.

The trust has conveyed to MMRC that a non-Parsi civil engineer will not be allowed to enter the fire temple. This in accordance with the prevailing rituals of the Parsi community, they have said, sending MMRC officials into a tizzy.

The MMRC is going to start with the tunnelling work for the underground corridor in October, for which tunnel boring machines (TBMs) will be shipped from China from July onward.

Considering that the tunneling work is likely to result in vibrations, the MMRC is carrying out a pre-construction survey.

“In this survey we will conduct, for every structure, we will prepare a report that will specify the structural strength of the same. In future, if there are any claims relating to tenants or structure owners blaming MMRC for cracks in their structure, we will be able to respond to them accordingly on the basis of the report.”

“For the Parsi fire temple at Chira Bazar in Marine Lines, we have been asked by the fire temple’s trust to find a Parsi civil engineer in case we want to carry out a survey from inside the temple. Due to this, we at MMRC, are also looking for one Parsi civil engineer and have also asked the trust to find a Parsi civil engineer,” said a MMRC official, who did not wish to be named.

The official added, “We have carried out survey on the external structure of the temple, but we need to go in to check its stability and the condition, as that will help us while we drill underground for the tunnel.”

Khurshed Mistry, Secretary, HP Wadia trust, told DNA, “We have already given pictures of our fire temple from outside. We cannot allow any non-Parsi inside the temple, be it an engineer or any layman. We are cooperating with the MMRC officials, but keeping the sentiments of our community in mind, we cannot allow non-Parsis inside the fire temple.”

The fire temple is located near the Girgaon Metro station of the Metro-3 corridor that will have 27 underground stations and will be a crucial north-south link. The metro corridor will connect major Central Business Districts (CBD) such as Nariman Point, Bandra-Kurla Complex (BKC) and Seepz in Andheri. The whole corridor is expected to be commissioned in 2022.
