Lack of job opportunities is responsible for the fall in admissions into engineering courses

Bhubaneswar:29/8/17: Chairman of All India Council for Technical Education  (AICTE) Anil Sahasrabudhe, while attending an event in Bhubaneswar today, said lack of job opportunities is responsible for the fall in admissions into engineering courses.

Talking to OTV Sahasrabudhe said, “As the large scale industries, especially the multinationals, are not increasing the jobs rather decreasing, a student gets disheartened without a job offer after completing four years of education.”

The second problem which is not apparent is that a number of private and deemed universities have come up that are also providing engineering courses. So it is not that the number of admissions have decreased but most of the students have diverted to these universities instead of taking admission in affiliated colleges. Mentioning that outdated syllabus is another factor due to which the students are not job ready, Sahasrabudhe  said, “AICTE has called in professors of IITs and industry experts to prepare a model curriculum and if the colleges follow it, the employability quotient of the students will improve.”
