Technical Education- India

Since almost around 15 years back, Engineering Education were confined to State owned or Govt. aided or Govt. controlled institutions and the seats were so limited that the admissions to those were done based on strict merit among real aspirants. The rapid developments in the field of technology opened many fold opportunities for engineering graduates which could not be catered by the Government controlled institutions alone. On the other hand, many entrepreneurs saw this as a business opportunity coupled with social responsibility, which resulted in the concept of Private Self Financing Engineering Colleges which have since then mushroomed. The number of Engineering Colleges at the dawn of independence in 1947 was 44 with an intake of 2500. In the early eighties, Govt. allowed private participation in the setting up of technical institutions on self financing basis. Following the same, a large number of privately managed institutions were established in the past 25 years and the growth of technical institutions countrywide with a detailed split up among the States from 1980 -2014 is shown in Table 1:
