 Abstract 
This paper empirically examines the application of different methods and techniques that areemployed in the Engineering Colleges for imparting knowledge. A survey conducted by usdealt with a variety methods and techniques that are used in training the future Engineers tocreate, maintain and sustain interest and curiosity in the learner towards learning objectsand to facilitate learning. The objective of the study is to examine the main methods applied in the training programs in Engineering Colleges, to rank the most effective training method and to suggest some more effective tools for the improvement in training in Engineering Colleges. In support to the objective of the research there is a primary research throughquestionnaire administration method in the field through stratified random sampling method and to analyze the data and derive results from it percentage method used. This method iseasy to use and taken as suitable method to compare, keeping in view the objective of the study. Out of 300 questionnaires served 221 responded which includes 97 girls. The responserate was 73.67%. From the total response of 221, the percentage of girls¶ participation was43.89%.In our study we found that found that the most widely used training methods and techniques were case study, lecture, role play, and seminar and business games. Thesetraining methods and techniques were found to be variously appropriate and facilitating learning. For the purpose of confidentiality we are not disclosing the names of the Engineering Colleges. Our concluding observation is that objective of the Engineering Colleges should focus more on

 Introduction
Training aims to change behavior at the work place in order to stimulate efficiency andhigher performance standards. It is concerned with work-based learning. In turn, learning isseen as a form of behavioral change (Alan and Chloe 1990). Training has been usefullydefined as ³the systematic development of the attitude, knowledge and skill and behavior  pattern required by an individual in order to perform adequately a given task or job (Glossaryof training terms, 1971). A training program normally uses a variety of training methods andtechniques to create and maintain and sustain interest and curiosity in the learner towardslearning. A number of training techniques totaling more than 300 are available (Andrzej1984). But none of those techniques may be deemed as the best because they have differentdegree of effectiveness depending on various factors like training objectives, the back ground, knowledge level and attitude of trainee and trainer and training environment. Theaim of study conducted by the authors was to analyze the training methods and techniquesusually applied in training programs in Engineering Colleges.
Objective of the study
 
To examine the main methods applied in the training programs in Engineering Colleges.
 
To rank the most effective training method.
 
To suggest some more effective tools for the improvement in training in EngineeringColleges.
 Limitations of the Study
 
The study is restricted to the selected Private Engineering Colleges in Bhubaneswar only.
 
The sample is limited; it may not represent scenario of all the students of PrivateEngineering Colleges.
 
The period of study conducted for the period of 2 months i.e. Sept 2010-Oct 2010
