Engineering colleges left with vacant seats

Views: 667

India has seen less growth rate of engineering colleges in over the years as the huge number of seat were found vacant. It was also seen that around one hundred new tech institutes recently received approval from technical education regulator AICTE. By the end of this month, another 200 are expected to be cleared to offer courses from the 2011-12 academic sessions. The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) had received applications for 1,062 proposed institutions that sought to start courses in engineering, management, pharmacy and architecture from this year. The council approved 175 institutions, including 100 engineering colleges, and asked the rest to correct their shortcomings. The proposed institutions were denied approval at the June 10 meeting as they were found to be deficient in aspects such as area, infrastructure, faculty, books and laboratory facilities. However, about 300 of them, including 200 proposed engineering colleges, had minor shortcomings relating to equipment and books that could easily be corrected. The number of engineering colleges has risen four-fold in the country in the past six years
