Engineering Education in India

Engineering Education in India

India is one of the largest manufacturers of engineers in the world. Engineering education began with the establishment of the first engineering college at Roorkee in the British era. AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) focuses on the planning, dissemination and construction of technical education. It has helped students across the country nurture and support quality education.

Due to increasing globalization, there is a lot of competition going on for students to succeed and contribute to the growth and development of the country. And India is one of the countries that provides the best engineering education for students. These students choose different fields in Computer Science, Mechanical, Electrical, Information Technology, Electronics, Civil and many other fields. Students gain knowledge and skills from these features and apply them in real life situations. Evolving challenges in the fields of health, development, energy, climate, technology, etc. can be best solved with the use of engineering knowledge. This knowledge enables students to master any challenges regardless of the situation.

With the growing number of students in the field of engineering, a number of technical institutes have been established across the country. Along with this, there are also challenges or problems that fail to provide a suitable platform for students in employment. But India is doing its best to revive the technical education system with quality and opportunities. Millions of students attend competitive examinations like JEE, JEE Main, AIEEE, CET, etc. for engineering seats in top universities or colleges. Here in this article we describe the role of engineering college college, the challenges, selection process and the future of engineering education in India.

Engineering Education in India – Selection Process
All students wishing to become engineers will have to take pass entrance exam for admission in top colleges. It is very important to be aware of the syllabus, eligibility criteria,] exam date, syllabus and time table for competitive examinations. Here is a list of activities about the selection process

Eligibility Criteria: Students should have completed 12th standard with Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry as the main subjects. And should be 60 percent overall in all subjects.
Entrance Exams: The popular engineering exams for undergraduates are JEE Main, JEE Advanced, Bitset, MHT CET, VTEE, SRMJEE and GATE for Postgraduate.
Engineering courses: Mechanical, Computer Science, Electronics, Civil and Electrical Engineering. In addition, there are other courses designed for engineering education
Exam Details: Exam time table, pattern, paper, syllabus, application fee and the whole process are different for all the above exams. You need to check the relevant websites for detailed instructions about the related exams.

Problems of engineering education in India
Engineering education is more prominent among students for better employment opportunities. But along with the study there are also some challenges that they have to face during teaching. Sometimes we overlook the fact that it is not only important to get selected in good universities or colleges, but also to get quality education.

Students in engineering education are facing some difficulties like

Influence about recruitment – Every student wants to be recruited in top companies because they think that the best recruitment is done in big colleges. Sometimes recruiters want to select students from top colleges instead of second place because of recognition or brand name. Brand names play an important role in changing the perception of the education system. It is very clear that students of top colleges will be given more priority as compared to other universities.

Lack of faculty – Teachers play an important role in imparting quality education to students. But the lack of quality teachers in engineering education is a matter of concern. Poor teaching methods and teacher skills can affect student performance

Lack of resources – There are thousands of engineering colleges across the country. And every college lodge needs resources to provide better opportunities. It is important to provide the basic needs of the students keeping in view the good infrastructure, libraries, books, technology, fair assessment strategy and evaluation.

Lack of placement – Millions of students take competitive exams to enroll in the top colleges of the country for better employment opportunities. Due to various factors, sometimes students are not selected for good placement.

Lack of skills-based training – With increasing globalization, each market is competing with each other to secure its place. It is only possible when you have skills that can be used with multiple opportunities. Sometimes there can be uncertainty or difficulties in the world. In such cases, students should be allowed to solve the situation practically with problem solving skills so that they can meet the needs of the current world.

Ineffective engagement with industries – There are chances that students will not understand the concept until there is a practical demonstration. Engineering with vast knowledge of technology and innovation requires effective engagement with specialized industries. It doesn’t make sense if students sit in the classroom and learn about the concept of manufacturing machines or any software that requires practical knowledge. For training and hands-on experience it is important to demonstrate practically and engage them with the relevant industry.

The future of engineering education in India
With the increasing globalization in the world, we need to think about providing the best opportunities to future generations.

There are many things that engineers can do to improve urbanization and address challenges in the areas of healthcare, medicine, infrastructure, education, tourism, economy, energy, defense, etc.
It is important that students need to work on their skills related to work, multidisciplinary programs and problem solving skills.
There is a lot of demand in the world for engineers who are very skilled in their work.
We need engineers not only in software companies, but also in other fields like education, banks, healthcare, defense, railways, manufacturing industries, research etc.
Upgrade the knowledge of the latest technology for the better development and growth of the country.
Engineering education should focus on good infrastructure, skills based curriculum, adequate resources, practical education, employment opportunities, employment training, equal opportunities in education and training and industry based materials.
Industry-related programs should be organized for students where experts from these industries are invited to talk and discuss current trends in innovation, discovery, technology, application, tools and the following areas.
Curriculum and syllabus should be revised at regular intervals based on the latest trends
Opportunities should be provided to develop their skills by participating in sessions, presentations, lectures related to the brain with the help of technology.
Soft skills should be developed to develop their speaking, writing and listening skills along with technical knowledge.

Overall Engineering education gives students a bright career with the technical background and causes future social & economic growth.
