Technical Education in India: Role of Private Institutions

Higher Education sector has witnessed a tremendous increase in the number of Universities/University level Institutions & Colleges since Independence. The number of Universities has increased 34 times from 20 in 1950 to 677 in 2014. More specifically if we talk about technical institutions, their number has gone up from 1,511 colleges in 2006-07 to an astoundingly high 3,345 in 2014-15.

India now ranks second after China in terms of enrolment of students. The government has set a target to achieve a Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) of 30% by 2020. But, the question arises, that is it sufficient to increase the number only?

It is true, that given with scale and complexity of the higher education challenges, the government on its own cannot single-handedly tackle all the issues but at the same time we all have to accept that majority of private technical institutions in India are Lacking in infrastructure, sufficient laboratory equipment, trained faculty, Research & Development, industry oriented curricula and theory- practical balance. They are producing large number of graduates with technical degrees but with no technical skills and who is not industry deployable. Continue reading

However, given the demanding exigencies of the professional world such as JK tyre & Industries, JK Lakshmi Cement following an adage such as this will only spell doom for a professional. It is so because most of the time spent by a professional today is devoted to the task of reading, writing, speaking and listening. In fact, the recent researches suggest that about 70 to 80% time of a professional is spent in attending and conducting meetings, making presentations, writing professional reports, writing official emails, interacting with other officials, addressing fellow professionals in public speaking situations, and so on an so forth.

Despite its crucial inevitability in professional world, thousands of Indian students studying in Top Universities, Best Engineering Colleges and Institutes of higher Learning in India find themselves ill equipped when it comes to carrying out communication related tasks effectively in their day-to-day professional world.

Some of the best India students in Engineering develop cold feet when it comes to making a presentation, participating in a group discussion, making an impromptu speech, or appearing at a job interview. What adds to the tragedy is the lack of attention that best academic institutes of higher education pay in providing adequate training in developing and improving the English communication skills of their students?
