States with fewer colleges produce better engineers

Just 12.73 per cent of engineering students of the State get employed in IT services and 1.24 per cent in the IT product services compared to 39.63 per cent and 14.32 per cent respectively in a ‘backward’ state like Jharkhand. A.P. has 721 engg. colleges with 12.73 p.c. employment, while Jharkhand has 17 colleges with 39.63 p.c. employment

The figures might look startling but the states with large number of colleges suffer with low employable quality of candidates while small states with very few engineering colleges produce better engineers, according to a study by Aspiring Minds, a leading employability measurement company.

The research assumes importance in the wake of all the States asking the AICTE not to permit more engineering colleges.
