Demand for engineering courses declines

HYDERABAD: The number of new engineering colleges in the State is rising steadily but students' preference to pursue engineering in the State appears to have declined, going by the number of candidates who have applied for EAMCET-2011. Compared to last year, the number of candidates taking EAMCET has reduced by nearly 50,000 this year. About 3.83 lakh candidates applied under the engineering stream last year and this year, the number is 3.47 lakh candidates.

Currently, there are about 2.7 lakh engineering seats in the State and in this academic year more seats are likely to be added. This is a high-supply-low-demand scenario. Most engineering colleges in the State lack infrastructure and do not offer quality education, says D.N.Reddy, Vice-Chancellor of JNTUH and Chairman, EAMCET 2011. As a result, most students are opting to pursue engineering in deemed universities unmindful of the fee structure. Compared to conventional engineering colleges, infrastructure in deemed universities is far better and the scope for placements is also higher, he says.

Interestingly, while the number of applications registered under the engineering stream for EAMCET this year has gone down, applications for medical stream have increased by nearly 14,000. Last year, about 54,000 candidates registered under the medical stream while this year the number is over 68,000. “The competition for medical seats is still higher. About eight candidates compete for one seat. But in the engineering stream there is hardly any competition and many seats are vacant in different colleges,” says another official.
