Nineteen New Engineering Colleges in Kerala – What a Stupid Move by Government!

Kerala government has given permission to open another 19 new engineering colleges this year. This move comes when over 12,000 engineering seats remained vacant in various engineering colleges in Kerala during last year. With the entry of 19 new engineering colleges, the total number of engineering colleges has increased to 162 colleges. In 1992 the state had 7 engineering colleges including REC, Calicut and in a span of 2 decades another 155 colleges were added. 
My house in Trivandrum in 8 kms from Trivandrum City and in walkable distance there will be two engineering colleges now. Things have reached a stage in Kerala that whoever clears Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics in Plus Two with minimum possible marks get to choose the colleges and branch of engineering. I feel if this trend continues we will soon find auto drivers, carpenters, masons and even day laborers having engineering course completion certificates. 
Following are the new engineering colleges sanctioned by the government:
  1. Akila School of Engineering, Kozhipara, Palakkad
  2. North Malabar Institute of Technology, Kanjanhad, Kasargord
  3. Vidhya Institute of Science and Technology, Kilimanoor, Trivandrum
  4. Nest Institute of Technology, Karivallur, Kannur
  5. K V M College of Engineering and I.T, Cherthala, Allapuzha
  6. Focus Institute of Science and Technology, M.G. Road, Trissur
  7. Aryanet Institute of Technology, Mundur Palakkad
  8. Mookambika Technical Campus, Muvattupuzha, Eranakulam
  9. I.L.M College of Engineering, Kezhillam, Perumbavoor
  10. Cochin College of Engineering and Technology, Valanchery, Malappuram
  11. Cochin Institute of Science and Technology, Muvattupuzha, Eranakulam
  12. Eranadu Knowledge City Technical Campus, Manjeri, Malappuram
  13. St. Thomas College of Engineering and Technology, Mattannur, Kannur
  14. A C E College of Engineering, Pachallor, Trivandrum
  15. Pinnacle School of Engineering and Technology, Anchal, Kollam
  16. M. Dasan Institute of Technology, Ullesheri, Kozhikode
  17. St. Gregarious College of Engineering Devalokam Perla Kasargord
  18. Muthoot Institute of Technology and Science, Puthenkurishu, Eranakulam
  19. I.E.S College of Architecture, Chittilapally, Trissur
When government gives importance to quantity than quality, be ready to see more engineering colleges mushrooming in Kerala in the days ahead.

I dont think this is a bad move from the government. Let these players compete among themselves to be the best, let the bad ones close. Competition is good, I can say this because I studied at a time when there was only less than half the competition among colleges...

Brijesh...on the contrary this could make acquiring an engineering education very affordable to the masses. Some of these students could go on build businesses and create products. Not necessarily go thru it for just the certificate. There are some students who will be inspired by the books and the laboratories...this gives them a chance to create add something great!
