Description

India produces large number engineers every year. So why do industry leaders complain about the absence of quality engineers for their industries? The future success of Indian industry depends on the growth of quality engineering education in India, especially since Indian industry is competing globally in software, and in areas such as automobiles, chemicals and engineering equipment. In India, the brightest students opt for engineering after the 12th standard. This has resulted in a spurt of engineering colleges, mainly in the private sector. Yet, there is significant unemployment among graduating engineers, due to their poor quality.

There is dearth of publicly available data on India’s engineering education system. This book documents the trends in student intake, number of engineering graduates, post-graduates and PhDs. The book includes a comparison of a few select Indian institutions – an Indian Institute of Technology, a National Institute of Technology and a private engineering college. International comparison shows that most Indian institutes have not effectively evolved from under-graduate teaching institutions to teaching and research institutions to teaching and research institutions. The concluding section provides recommendations and strategies for engineering education in India. Educators, policy makers, industry leaders who are interested in understanding and improving the engineering education system, will find this book immensely useful.
