 Is it the right time and the best opportunity for introducing the 'ONLINE ENGINEERING DEGREE' programmes in the country? The advantages could be:


1.        Tremendous resource saving in terms of funding, land, infrastructure, energy, foreign exchange.

2.        Requirement of few hundred acres of land for each institution will vanish. Thus more land can be made available for modern farming and improved civic infrastructure.

3.        There won’t be any financial pressure on the parents for sustaining their wards in Hostels.

4.        Staying at home will allow healthy and hygienic food for the students all the time.

5.        Huge expenditure and pressure in hiring faculty will be eliminated.

6.        Examination could be ‘Online or OMR sheet’ based.

7.        Single University (National University) alone can manage all online admissions and testing process.

8.        Students can register for ‘mooc courses offered by nptel’.

9.        Anybody interested irrespective of age with minimum eligibility should be able to register for the particular course. This will do away with all entrance tests.

10.     Students thus will be able to register for a degree of choice since there can’t be any limit on the number of seats available in a particular programme.

11.     All the students will hence be covering exactly the same curriculum and examination. This will also help in providing honest National grading of students (Absolute Ranking).

12.     Pressure of opening more institutions and creating infrastructure won’t be there.

13.     There won’t be any peer pressure on the tender minds. This will be saving students from getting in to mental depression and frustrations.

14.     Funds saved could be utilized for creating better civic amenities and ‘Affirmative Action’ for the society.

15.     The greatest advantage could be the Vaporization of Coaching Institutes, thus saving young minds from the tremendous mental pressure which at times leads to committing suicide.

16.     Education won’t be a business anymore.

NOTE: The impact on the nation would be that it will continue to be a nation of followers

The Blog was first published on May 1st, 2019. The idea for writing blog that time came from the prevalent lack of commitment for teaching and learning methodology that has become the trend in almost all teaching institutions in the country.

Strangely and accidentally the idea is a reality today due to CORONA pandemic. Most institutions are following “Online” education and are awarding degrees without completing the basic need of realistic teaching. Since Universities / Institutes have already started distributing online degrees, the CONCEPT expressed in the blog could be made a PERMANENT reality?

Concerned students and parents may react either way but must react for the sake of their FUTURE.
