Each year almost 15 Lakh students graduate from the engineering colleges in India. It has been noted as a high figure compared to US and China. It has a fact to be highlighted that India has a much higher population compared to the countries like China and US. But a main point to be noted is that India lacks a high economic growth rate than the growth rate of China and US. But still the Indian government manages to separate the education system from the effects of less economic growth rate and politics.
Reports say the fact is not only foe engineering but it's also the same for MBA students. Countries like China face a lot of obstruction from political issues. In spite of their economic potential, the colleges cannot provide seating for all the willing students in engineering and medical fields. But in India, political issues are not at all a major problem. The colleges have enough seats for the students in both the fields.
But the alarming problem related to education in India is a huge downfall in the graph of job recruitment to the engineers and MBAs. The rule of allotting limited students in medical colleges forces the entrance examination qualified students to troll over engineering colleges. But there is not enough facilities within the government owned engineering colleges to admit all the students. This forces the spread of private colleges. But the outcome of studies, teaching faculty and job opportunities are not more satisfactory than the government colleges.
The semester fees and admission fees are too much higher than the government colleges. Ashok Burman, general secretary of All India Federation of University and College Teachers’ Organizations (AIFUCTO) says that public spending on higher education system should get increased. But the contrasting fact is that it is impossible for many middle class families to arrange those huge amounts.
Another problem which should not get overlooked is that campus placement facility in other private engineering colleges outside the top 20 colleges in India in only more or less than 10%. In spite of taking a huge amount of admissions and tuition fees, the colleges fail to give jobs to more than 80% of its students. This is not their fault it is the fault of the employment sectors. India fails to arrange job to each and every engineer and MBAs who graduate every year.
This rate of unemployment forces the qualified engineers and MBAs to join private sectors where the job environment is not appropriate as much they deserve and the salary is not satisfactory. Even after spending huge amounts of money for the degree they get jobs whose salary are much less. But this type of problems is not faced by China and US. They have enough job opportunities for all the graduating students each year.
Education in India is quite easy and fruitful compared to China and US but the job opportunities in India is very poor. Lack of good economic growth and lack of job employment facilities are the major drawbacks of the education system of India.
