Engineering Education in Limelight

India is rapidly developing in terms of Economy and Education. There is a huge demand of the working class Indian’s as the talented workforce is less than 35 years of age. India’s literacy rate is 72.99% as of today and it is still way below the average literacy rate in the world that is 84%. This makes it clear that Education drives our Economy by a long shot. The Education Sector generates a staggering amount of wealth which accounts for 91.7 Billion Dollars which is expected to grow in the years to come. And literacy rate is one of the key aspects in measuring the socio-economic growth of a country. Governments are making sure that Education is accessible to everyone.

With this being said, we can address the dilemma, students go through when they have to choose between colleges. Taking everything into perspective, the article lands you on a better understanding. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Why And How It Impacts Today’s World

Engineering is the most popular undergraduate course, hence we will be focusing on engineering courses and colleges. Engineering education comprises of undergraduate and postgraduate level courses on top of which research goes hand in hand on top of the curriculum. There are around 10000 engineering colleges registered across the country, under AICTE. Telangana and Tamil Nadu combined account to more than 1/5th of all the engineering colleges in India. All these engineering colleges in Telangana typically has several departments, each of which has its own faculty and supporting staff. All these college offer computer science engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, etc.

Figure 1: How Engineering is changing the World

Engineering is the first professional degree offered by the engineering colleges and India is one of the largest producers of Engineers in the world in which Tamil Nadu stands 1st among the 29 states. However, there are numerous Engineering Colleges in Chennai that impart undergraduate and graduate courses in engineering, applied sciences and applied engineering.

What is Engineering Course, and Why is it Important?

The course offered in Undergraduate level engineering is B.Tech. B.Tech stands for Bachelor of Technology and this Course is so in demand as it is a skill-oriented course and the students get to study more practically through Labs & Seminars conducted by colleges on daily basis. The course is split into 8 Semesters in a span of 4 years, in which it is mandatory for a student to undergo rigorous evaluation and training.

FIgure 2: Why is Engineering so important?

These are few courses to choose from in Engineering Colleges in Chennai:

  • Aerospace Engineering
  • Automobile Engineering
  • Biotechnology Engineering
  • Computer Science Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electronics and Communication Engineering
  • Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering
  • Information Technology
  • Instrumentation Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Mechatronics Engineering
  • Medical Electronics Engineering
  • Petroleum Engineering

Even if we agree or not, Engineering is in great demand these days. An engineer is emphasized to think practically yet on out of the box ideas which can be implemented to the existing problems. There are a lot of Professors who keep motivating their students to work on the public problems to come up with breakthrough solutions. The 4-year course not only enhances the science and engineering aspect of students but also enables to make decisions according to the situation to face the uncertainty and ambiguity in order to manage risk. Professors also make sure that the course is revised every now and then so that it is up to date.

An Engineer is a continuous learner and he keeps learning and updating himself with new skills and knowledge. Colleges play an important role in making students understand, how important it is or them to stay updated. Specialized Engineering courses are offered by almost all the top engineering colleges in Chennai, which are registered under AICTE.

TS EAMCET: A Gateway of Engineering Colleges in Telangana

EAMCET is a common entrance exam conducted by every year. EAMCET stands for Engineering Agriculture and Medical Common Entrance Test for admissions into engineering and medical colleges. There are two EAMCET exams conducted as of now after Telangana split itself from Andhra Pradesh. TS EAMCET and AP EAMCET. Training for these Competitive exams is a real business in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, the coaching industry alone generates a staggering 50 billion rupees each year. One of the major players in this industry is Narayana and Sri Chaitanya. There are around half a million students appearing for this entrance examination every year and these major players have a large share of the whole pie.

TS EAMCET examination enables a student to fetch a seat in Engineering Colleges in Telangana, Medical or any equivalent courses in Telangana. Engineering seats are controlled by both the Government entities so that students from Telangana State get more weightage in their state and the same goes for Andhra Pradesh as well.

The government of Telangana has been very consistent in providing the best education system to the undergraduate aspirants. Telangana Chief Minister KCR has been talking to the Central Government to consider establishing multiple research facilities to boost the Quality of Education and Research in Science field.
