STATE OF ENGINEERING EDUCATION IN INDIA AND MAKE IN INDIA

"Go through the article published as above before you decide to become an engineer, the head will hang in shame"


VIEWPOINT
Teacher not teaching with commitment and honestly the course at the desired level is very similar to the story of Guru Dronacharya and Eklavya. Students not getting educated despite paying hefty fee and GOI spending so much for sustaining teachers and the system is the present day story of Guru Dronacharya and Eklavya.

Literacy must not be confused with education and hence literate engineers (not the educated ones) are facing gigantic problem of employment and industries are also finding it difficult to sustain in the absence of educated engineers. The present day MESS was a foregone conclusion. It is a very simple formula of destroying any nation. Our system ensures creating / producing mental slaves. Please read between the lines.

GOI probably has done everything to promote skill and engineering education in the country. The budget of MHRD alone is probably over one lakh crores leaving aside the funds generated through Internal Resource Generation (IRG). The amount involved in Private Universities & Institutions is separate. We probably can’t expect more. However, the people who were given responsibility (Custodians) of nurturing the technical education and skill development have failed it.

There are no laboratories worth the name in many of the institutions. Therefore practical exposure of the technology can’t be given to the budding engineers (Future of the Nation), many of the teachers don’t go to the laboratories. There is non-functional equipment / instruments / rigs meaning even if teacher goes to the laboratory, practical won’t be conducted. In many of the places practicals are explained theoretically or through simulation which is nothing more than an eye wash. These methodologies will never allow skill development and engineering education in real sense.

Incompetency, No accountability and 100% job security of teachers and supporting staff, discouraging students from making class room teaching interactive, teachers not engaging classes in many of the institutes, using sessional marks / attendance etc as tools to silence students are some of the main reasons for this MESS, the country is in today.

Unfortunately these unscrupulous people are in majority and have created such an IMPREGNABLE shield around them that even custodians of the education are not able to see through.


Strong measures as deemed fit are required at SOS level. Employability, Make in India will sustain only after this TREATMENT.
