Technical Education-Kerala

Technical Education-Kerala

During the initial stages, institutions under Government sector outnumbered the Private institutions as the Policy of Government then did not favor much private participation inorder to have a control over the Technical Education portfolio. The growing scope of higher education imposed by the demand raised through market expansion has led to an undue expansion at this level with the larger role assumed by private sector which then got popularly branded as Self Financing Institutions. The State houses 14 Universities which includes the Central University of Kerala, IIST , IISER and NUALS. The Higher Education Scenario prevailing in the state and the number of institutions with their respective portfolio could be summarized as below.
