Six Govt Engg Colleges in state get regular Principals (News)
Media coverage of LD College of Engineering, Ahmedabad Gujarat, Gujarat
Quota for diploma holders hiked in engg collegesAhmedabad The number of seats in the government-run and privately owned degree engineering colleges in the state has been increased from 10 per cent to 20 per cent for candidates holding diploma in engineering and seeking admission to B Tech courses to improve their career.
The decision taken by the state education department as per instructions of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) will come into effect from this academic year itself.
With the decision, there will now be more than 7,420 seats available for diploma candidates in different courses in degree engineering colleges across the state. Till last year, the figure was 3,710.
Since the admission committee for professional courses (ACPC) is not sure if all the seats meant for diploma holders could be filled up, it has decided to allot the vacant seats to those having completed BSc with mathematics, physics and chemistry.
Though a minimum of 50 per cent marks is a pre-requisite for both diploma-holders and those with a BSc, the admission list would be prepared on merit and the candidates with higher marks would be considered first.
These candidates would, however, not require to clear Gujarat Combined Entrance Test (Gujcet) as is the case for those having passed Class XII. They would be admitted directly to second year of the degree course on the basis of marks in their diploma and BSc.
ACPC member and L D College of Engineering principal M N Patel said the new procedure, known as lateral entry would provide more opportunities to diploma students and also help the BSc students to become engineers if they wished so.
Unlike in the past, the state education department has also made the students of the international board and the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) eligible for admission to states engineering colleges.
Patel said that like other students, they would also have to clear Gujcet examination and apply to ACPC for admission.
Earlier, NIOS and international board students were not allowed to get admission to states engineering college.
2 from Abad, 1 from Gnagar get IIMA callAhmedabad: Dreams of learning management fundas at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIMA) have come true for two students from Ahmedabad and one from Gandhinagar.
A day after the Common Admission Test (CAT) results were announced, two students — Mayur Bhakar and Siddharth Goyal from Ahmedabad and Akash Shroff from Gandhinagar got calls from the mecca of management- IIMA, on Thursday.
While Mayur is a student of LD Engineering college in Ahmedabad, Siddharth studies at Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication and Akash has studied pharmacy from Vallabh Vidyanagar. Joy was palpable in their voices as their cherished dream of studying in the premier B-school has moved closer to realisation.
Mayur said, I studied at LD Engineering college. Whenever I went out with friends to Vastrapur or anywhere I used to see IIMA building. There was a wish deep inside to study there and I am so happy that I have got closer to my dream. He secured 98.99 percentile in CAT 2011. Mayur hails from Rajasthan and his parents are settled in Surat. Same is the case with Akash who got 98.73 percentile in CAT - 2011. I tried my luck in CAT 2010 also. Things didnt work out in my favour last time.
Shroff said, I am as happy as nervous to have received call from IIMA. I dont want to screw my chances this jyear, he said with passion in his voice. Ask him if he would want to try it out at other institutes, if he doesnt make to IIMA, he promptly says, Its only IIMA and nowhere else!
When asked if they want to be entrepreneurs as they get out of IIMA, they replied that they would want to take up a job initially and only after testing waters, they would take a call whether they want to be an entrepreneur.
Only 1 teacher to teach 30 wannabe engineers in Ahmedabad collegeSample this: LD Engineering college in Ahmedabad has 1,140 seats in different engineering branches. As per the All India Committee for Technical Education (AICTE), the college should ideally have around 80 faculty members to maintain the desirable teacher- student ratio of 1:15 for bachelors course.
Despite being one of the oldest and popular engineering colleges, LD has half the number of faculties than required.
Currently, the college has 40 faculties-which puts the teacher student ratio at 1: 28.5 -almost double the ideal situation. The staff crunch in all government engineering colleges is hard-hitting as admissions to engineering colleges are set to begin soon in the state.
Like LD Engineering college, majority of the government engineering colleges have as many as 90% vacancy in posts of professor, assistant professor and associate professor. As per the information sought under the Right to Information, of 16 government engineering colleges, only three colleges have principals. The rest are making do with in-charge principals.
Similarly, of the sanctioned posts for 277 professors, only 25 have been filled up and 252 seats are vacant, 152 posts of assistant professors have been filled up against the sanctioned 540 posts.
Also, of the sanctioned 1,183 posts for lecturers, only 315 have been filled up, with 868 posts still vacant.
LD doesnt have a problem as it is one of the biggest colleges and is in Ahmedabad. We have a number of visiting faculties and experts guiding students. But the situation in colleges in interior parts of Gujarat or small places would be serious as not many visiting faculties prefer to go to such colleges, said one of the senior faculty members at LD Engineering colleges.
Is the situation the same in private colleges? Vice-chancellor of Gujarat Technological University (GTU) Dr Akshai Aggarwal said that many private engineering colleges might not have principals and head of the department. But the major problem they face is lack of senior and qualified faculties, he said. He added that GTU checks if the colleges have principals, but ensuring implementation of norms to improve quality of education is within the principals purview.
With so many prime posts vacant, will students opting for engineering get quality education? If colleges do not have enough faculties, the number of academic sessions, including both theory and practical sessions will suffer. We have received complaints that 90-day academic sessions in colleges are not completed. Sometimes, sessions are completed in just 40-42 days, Aggarwal told.
According to experts, of the various engineering branches, marine and civil engineering face major faculty crunch. With infrastructure opportunity growing in the market, not many civil engineers want to be in academics. Also, having a Masters degree is minimum qualification to become a faculty and not all students take up masters degree in engineering, said a senior professor at LD college.
