Engineering education in India: past, present and future

Author: Saha, Samir Kumar

Keywords: Engineering--Education
Engineering--Study and teaching

Issue Date: 2011-07

Publisher: National Council of Science Museums, Kolkata

Description: The article is about how engineering education evolved in India along different models, the present Scenario and the future roadmap. A comparative analysis has been done on an international basis regarding growth of technical education, curriculum, and accreditation and assessment procedures also - so that our global position is improved in technical education, thereby ensuring the growth of our economy.
There are strengths as well as weaknesses of the Indian technical education system. At present, India is producing a technical manpower of about 5-6 lakh. However; even with a 9% GDP India ranks very low in HDI or knowledge economy index. Innovation is not a Strong point of India's technical education System. That needs rectification.
The identification of weak points being imperative and immediate, the article attempts to make some conclusive remarks so that the technical education scenario in India can be improved and India can take a globally relevant Seat in the engineering educational institute rankings.
