The AICTE short for All India Council for Technical Education released the information that one out of every three students is not able to complete its engineering.
At undergraduate level, it is revealed by AICTE in a survey that 48,139 students out of 1,50,000 do not clear engineering within the assigned 4 years. So, it shows that 30 percent of the students that join engineering are struggling a lot to complete it.
The sad part is that these are not the statistics of just this year, this is happening from the last 4 years. Professors of engineering colleges say that all this is happening as students just join engineering because of parental pressure but they do not really want to do it so, they end up failing it.
Experts say that the numbers are even worse at post graduate level as 40 percent of the students fail and the Vice Chancellor of Anna University agrees with the experts. Out of all the courses, civil and mechanical engineering has the maximum number of students failing. 41.39 percent students belonging to mechanical engineering and 44.29 students belonging to civil engineering failed in the academic year 2015-2016.
The former Vice-Chancellor of Anna University, P Mannar Jawahar said that the major reason this is happening is because of increase in private colleges which increases the number of seats and gives such results.
