Mech Engg is top choice this year

Despite low wages as compared to other streams of engineering, a steady market nationally and globally in terms of salary and job guarantee has prompted young aspiring engineering students to choose mechanical engineering (ME) as a career.

Mech Engg is top choice this year

While colleges across the state have no vacant seats for ME, students' second choice is electrical engineering followed by electrical & electronics engineering, civil engineering and computer science & engineering.
Surprisingly, the most preferred engineering stream for years, electronics and communication engineering (EC) is lagging behind.

"Globally, it has been observed that ME has always maintained or had a steady market with respect to job and salary. And with the growing unsteadiness in the markets today, students prefer to opt for a field which gives them job guarantee irrespective of the market scenario," said MN Patel, Admissions Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) chairman and principal of LD Engineering college.

Although they are yet to get the cumulative figures with regards to vacant seats across state colleges, so far, the streams chosen by students do not seem to give a rosy picture. Patel said, "This year, the once most sought after stream of engineering EC has 1,745 vacant seats, which is by far the highest number ever. Following closely is computer engineering with 1,015 vacant seats and then is information technology with 800 vacant seats."

Till now, there are 4,961 vacant seats in engineering degree. The scenario for pharmacy is also not very bright with 3,796 seats lying vacant in degree pharmacy and 447 seats lying vacant in diploma pharmacy. In order to get these vacant seats filled up with students, ACPC declared on Tuesday, that colleges should provide admissions to students who had passed GCET in any year, but failed to secure admissions.

Depending on the cumulative figures of vacant seats across colleges, ACPC will decide the course of action. However, Patel said, "While engineering colleges have received applications, there are 12 pharmacy colleges which have not received any applications till now. We are waiting till September 5 for the final figures."
