MTU give another chance to take admission in Engineering
The Central Admission Board on Sunday decided that aspirants
who have qualified State Entrance Test 2011 and took part in document verification
of first round of counselling will be given another chance to take admissions in
the technical colleges affiliated to Gautam Buddh Technical University and Mahamaya
Technical University (MTU).
According to MTU vice chancellor Prof S Kak, candidates who have already taken admission
can also participate in the second round of counselling. "Since many more institutions
are now added to the list and seats in many existing colleges have increased, a
student can look for a better college," said Prof Kak. It is to be mentioned that
technical colleges in the state are reeling under acute shortage of students.
This year, only 82,000 aspirants qualified SEE for admissions to engineering institutions
as against 1.14 lakh seats. Out of this, nearly 55% said good bye during document
verification, leaving the number to 37,000. Finally, only 27,000 students joined
the engineering colleges. The situation for management colleges is no better. Only
4,939 candidates have taken admission in management colleges in the state.
