Why engineering admissions are reducing year by year
Over the past few years, the shocking picture of the decline in demand or lack of demand for the majority of engineering courses, which were once highly regarded.The reasons behind this picture are as technical as they are immediate. This year, around 94 thousands students appeared admissions for nearly one lakh seats in the central admissions process.This is the lowest number in the last ten years. Another important reason is the result of the fall of 12th result.That's true. This time, especially this year, the result of the students belonging to the State Secondary Board XII is lower than that of other central boards.
There was a time when the number of students studying engineering was very high. At the same time, according to the latest data, the number of students taking admission in engineering has decreased. The reason of the shortage is being told by the interest of the students, which is slowly ending. Because of which a decision is being taken to close 200 engineering colleges.
According to the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), about 200 engineering colleges have applied for closure. After which these engineering colleges of second and third grade can no longer give admission to any student. As of now, the names of these 200 colleges have not been announced officially.
From the year 2012-2013, the number of students taking admission in engineering has decreased by about 1.86 lakhs. After which it has been found that from the year 2016, the number of students taking admission in engineering is continuously decreasing every year. According to AICTE, about 75,000 students are falling every year. There was a decrease in students doing undergraduate education in engineering.
In the year 2016-17, the capacity to take admission in undergraduate was 15,71,220 while only 7,87,127 students took admission. After which there was a 50 percent drop in admission. At the same time, in 2015-2016, 16,47,155 students could be taken, but only 8,60,357 students took admission. Where there was a 53 percent drop in admission.
This year Zero admission in 18 private engineering colleges in Bhopal
Some colleges have closed. Some of the larger colleges with higher admissions capacity have become private universities.The mandatory way to fill the vacancies is to fill the gap next year through direct entry.The slowdown economy in the country, especially in the manufacturing sector, has worsened the past few years
Government and private engineering colleges in the state have seen a 46.07% decline in admissions in the last four years. Engineering has reached saturation ( especially in India). Instead of quantity, now quality is preferred a lot.students are not employable because the syllabus taught in colleges is outdated and hasn’t been changed to meet the needs of the world.Candidates who brings in multi-tasking ( a developer is made to front end, back end and even testing sometimes) to curb the excess Manforce, as a means of cost cutting. Demand is stagnant over the past few years ( although it increased after the recession of 2009). Supply has skyrocketed with the population boom India is facing. If not controlled, a major recession (globally) is eminent by the end of 2020.
