Education of Engineering in India has been under the limelight due to the hullabaloo surrounding the new admittance examination formation for the admission in IITs.
In an article, a renowned person claims that successful engineering wants a good perceptive of people and organizations. Devoid of these, engineering is useless, ensuing in poor services and high costs. When that renowned person refers to “hierarchical institutes, language dissimilarities, and profound social gulfs” troublemaking the presentation of Indian engineering, we reminded the cultural and social hurdles to the improvement. Like any other professional regulation, engineering wants to be entrenched in the social environment in which it is likely to show outcomes. Our letdown to comprise perceptive social science and humanities courses in the education of Engineering in India is proving costly undeniably.
Concerned by the common reports of poor engineering skills and unemployable engineers among the thousands of Indian engineering graduates, a well-known professor and entrepreneur commenced the Joy of Engineering, Design and Innovation (JEDI) competition few years ago. This contest is based on last year projects carried out by engineering students as part of their engineering syllabus. But we hope that at least a few of the JEDI discoveries get out of the lab and placed into the market.
An interesting report says that approximately 85 of the top 100 rankers join IIT Bombay. The report credited this to “enhanced industry experience, superior facilities and a moderate campus life.” While it’s surely good to spot superiority issues rather than natural features or language swaying student preferences, it’s not easy to evade thinking in an age of social networks and new-fangled and fine methods of peer stress. But is this only the newest sign of a need of uniqueness and sovereign thinking? If so, this does not promise as well in good health for the nation.
Still, we can feel a bit positive with emergence of some quality institutes like Arya Group of Colleges who are dedicated and willing to offer top-notch education and produce capable engineers. While unemployment has remained the biggest issue in the industry, Arya Group of Colleges has created a stream of achieving more than 90 percent placement record since last many years.
