Lowest engineering position in 10 years, 62 universities to close in 2021

Engineering work at the undergraduate, graduate and diploma levels fell to 23.28 lakhs effortlessly. This is the lowest level in at least 10 years and is shown by the latest figures from the All India Technical Education Degree Council (AICTE)

The Indian Institute of Technology is closed and the latest report shows the lowest number of places in engineering educational institutions in 10 years. According to the latest data from the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), undergraduate, graduate and engineering positions are 23.28 lakh, the lowest level in the last 10 years. The shortage of places this year is estimated at Rs 1.46 lakh due to the closure of the institute and the reduction in enrollment.

It is important to note that, although the number of places is constantly decreasing, engineering still represents 80% of the total number of national technical training places (architecture, management, hotel management, drugstore). 50 training institutes for engineers closed every year since 2015- 16. At the peak of 2014-15, all facilities approved by AICTE had approximately Rs 320,000 in training for engineers. This decline is due to the integration process that began seven years ago, during which the university had to close due to sluggish demand. Since then, about 400 technical schools have closed. With the exception of last year’s Covid pandemic, at least 50 technical facilities have had to close every year since 2015-16. This year, 63 engineering agencies have received AICTE certification due to closures.

At its peak in 2014-15, all AICTE-approved institutions had approximately 320,000 technical training sites. This decline is explained by the integration that began seven years ago. Meanwhile, the university had to be closed due to sluggish demand. Since then, about 400 vocational schools have been closed. With the exception of last year’s Covid pandemic, at least 50 technical institutions have been closed each year since 2015-16. This year, 63 technical institutions were closed with AICTE approval.

Approval by the engineering education regulator for the establishment of a new engineering lab is the lowest in five years. In 2019, AICTE announced a two-year moratorium on new institutions starting in 202021. This was based on the recommendation of a government committee headed by BVR Chairman Mohan Reddy of IIT Hyderabad. AICTE approved 54 new organizations in 2021-22.

Importantly, in 2021-22, AICTE approved 54 new organizations. As reported President Anil Sahasrabudhe said these approvals relate to the establishment of remote technical schools, continuity requirements and if the state government wants to establish a new school. Three years before the ban came into force, regulators approved 143, 158 and 153 new factories in 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20, respectively.

Due to poor rankings nobody is hiring hundreds of thousands of engineering positions all over India. Experts say banning new organizations is not enough. They say the government must focus on improving the quality of education and securing jobs. Previous officials have said, “At this point we need to secure jobs for engineering graduates, which has yet to happen. Fact: Less than 50% of graduates are affected each year: CEO. “Less than 50% of engineering graduates are affected each year, which certainly has a significant impact on the overall demand for engineering courses.
