Scope of Engineering
As you know technical education plays a vital role in human resource development of the country by creating skilled manpower, enhancing industrial productivity, creating self-employment and improving the quality of life. 70% population of India belongs to rural population. On the contradictory, only 23% of technical education has been contributed by the rural population. As per the NASSCOM report 10 millions of technical professionals are required by India by 2020, in IT sector itself, most of them will be exported to Japan and USA. This has left major role and responsibility on the organizations/colleges like us to aware our rural students, to create fondness regarding technical education and make them technically professionals to fulfill the industry demand.
India produces the largest number of engineers. Even with such a huge qualified workforce generated annually from the engineering stream, the I.T industry is on an aggressive and incessant recruitment spree. Firstly it implies that there still exists a huge demand-supply gap and secondly it also raises a question about the quality of engineers produced in terms of industry specific practical orientation. This presents a real challenge to the institutions offering Engineering degree to produce technically competent engineers. The dynamic nature of the profession calls for designing education programs with a global perspective. Bachelors degree in Engineering is still considered to be the most rewarding career option which lays the foundation for imparting design and analytical skills required for the profession. The global scope of the profession has resulted in large scale transmigration inquest of greener pastures. Wherever one goes, what stands the test of time is the quality of education that has really unleashed the latent potential within and transformed it into a tangible skill. A very serious point of concern, especially in the Indian context, that needs attention is the accessibility of institutes to the rural population. Even meritorious students at times may face financial constraints or traveling problems to get enrolled into colleges in the metros. There are very few engineering colleges like us in the rural regions which offer quality education and which is worth the money spent.
