Indian engineering education is clearly at a crossroads. On the one hand, there is a proliferation of engineering colleges, while on the other there is a sheer lack of quality teachers. Of late, there is also a waning interest in engineering education among students, with many students dropping out of even the high and mighty IITs. The employability of engineering graduates is another concern. If experts are to be believed, only 25 percent of the engineering graduates that India churns out every year are employable. What’s worse is that the salaries commanded by fresh engineering graduates are at par or less than those of commerce graduates, who spend much less time, effort and money on their courses. Outlook talks to experts from different fields on what currently ails Indian engineering education.
