    Section1BACKGROUND

    1.1 PresentSystemofEngineeringEducationinIndia:Engineeringeducationbecameamainattractionafter1990whenIndiabecameamajorcontributortotheglobal IT industry revolution. In the last twodecades,manyStateGovernmentshaveencouragedestablishment of selffinanced Engineering Institutions where State Government does not providefinancialsupport.Asaresult,theIndiansystemofEngineeringEducationhasbecomevastandsofaratotalnumberof3495EngineeringDegree institutions1havebeenestablishedwithenrolmentcapacityof17,61,976asin201213.

    TheexponentialgrowthinEngineeringEducationseemstohavenotresultedinanysignificantgrowthin thenumberofqualityGraduatesdue to restrictedavailabilityofqualifiedandmeritorious faculty.There is currently a wide gap between qualities of Engineering Education as imparted in variousinstitutions. The quality of education and training being imparted in the Engineering Educationinstitutionsvariesfromexcellenttopoor,withsomeinstitutionscomparingfavourablywiththebestinthe world and others suffering from different degrees of handicaps. There is a gap between theeducational standardsof the Indian InstitutesofTechnology (IITs)andotherEngineering institutions.The few IITs can neither change the fate of thewhole country nor improve the entire EngineeringEducationSystem.

    Concertedeffortsare required tobridge thegap in thequalityofeducationbetween IITsandotherinstitutions.TheIITscanactasacatalystinthegrowthofqualityEngineeringEducationinthecountry,andplayamajor role in training faculty fromother institutionsof the country inboth teachingandresearch.SomeoftheconcernsinEngineeringEducationSystemare:

    a) Facultyshortage:Themassiveexpansionofinstitutionshasresultedinanacutefacultyshortageinthe institutions. Insomeofthe importantdisciplinessuchas InformationTechnologyandrelatedareas,availabilityof faculty isdismalas the institutionsarenotable toattractand retaingoodquality facultydue to archaic recruitment andpromotionprocedures, absenceof incentives forquality performance, and nonexistent faculty development policies inmost institutions. Also,shortageoftrainingopportunitiesandattentiontooverallgrowthoffacultyisadverselyaffectingimpartationofqualityknowledgeandskillstostudents.Thefacultyalsolackcommunicationskillsandpedagogicalskills.

    b) IndustryAcademia collaboration: At present, this collaboration is at a nascent stage. IndustryAcademia collaboration involves two key aspectsinputs to curriculum development andinternships for students. Increasing IndustryAcademiacollaboration requires: (i)overcoming thedistrustbetween the twopartners; (ii) identificationofwinwinpartnerships in termsof sharingtechnicalknowledge;and(iii)provisionofincentivestoinstitutionsandfacultyforcollaboration.

    c) Obsolete learning infrastructure: This prevents the development of handson skills in Industryrelevant technologies.Many institutions have not upgraded their equipment, laboratories, andlearning resources for even more than a decade. There is also absence of timely curriculumrevisions for increasing focus on practical training and quality instructions, research anddevelopment.

    d) Stagnatingresearch:IncreasingresearchthatcaterstotheemergingIndustryandsocietaldemandsfor technological solutions results in directly and indirectly improving knowledge and quality offaculty, which in turn would benefit students. A growing number of Indian firms are keen tocollaborate with academia to enhance their competitiveness in teaching and research. Activeresearch programmes in Engineering Education institutions would also make meaningfulcontributionforsustainabletechnologicaldevelopmentinIndia.

    e) Attracting students tobecome faculty: The attractionof students to a teaching careerdependsupon salary package, perks/facilities and professional career development opportunities.Industrialsectorsalarieshaveincreasedsignificantlyinthelastfewyearsbuttheincreaseinfacultysalary with comparable experience ismarginal. Furthermore, inmany institutions, there is aprobleminprovisionandmaintenanceofstandardamenitiesofhousingaccommodation,medicalattention, good quality schooling forwards on residential campus, etc. The nonavailability ofadequate research funds and quality research students is also a cause of concern in theprofessionalgrowthofafaculty.

    f) Imbalance in outputs at Bachelors,Masters and Doctoral levels in engineering disciplines: Thenumber of Bachelors degree graduates in engineering (BE/BTech) every year has increasedexponentiallyfromabout270 in1947to2,37,000 in2006which is12%aspercompoundannualgrowthrate(CAGR)asstatedinstudyreportsubmittedbyEnergySystemsEngineering,IITBombayin the year 2007. However, as compared to Bachelors degree, theMasters output has onlyincreasedfromabout14,000in2001to20,000in2006,whichis7.5%,andtheDoctoraloutputhasincreasedbyamere2.9%from1985to2005.Thedatapresentedclearlyreflectsthattheoutputof EngineeringGraduates atBachelor level is disproportionately high in comparison toMasterslevel and further higher at theDoctoral level. The under production ofMasters and Doctoraldegree holders is now seen to be seriously undermining quality of education (due to highproportionofunderqualifiedfaculty).

    1.2 GovernmentofIndiaInitiatives:

    GovernmentofIndiahasadoptedtheNationalPolicyonEducation(NPE1986asrevisedin1992).TheNPEhassuggestedsomemajorstepstopromoteefficiencyandeffectivenessofEngineeringEducationasquotedbelow:

    (v) Facilitiesforsports,creativeworkandculturalactivitieswillbeexpanded.(vi) TheGovernmentof IndiashallassisttheStateGovernments forthedevelopmentofprogrammesof

    Nationalimportance.

    During 1980s, the Government of India (GoI) and the State Governments had felt the need forrevamping the Technician Education System in the country tomake it demanddrivenwith relevantcourses innewandemergingtechnologies,withadequate infrastructureresources,competentfacultyandeffective teachinglearningprocesses.TheGovernmentof Indiasupported25StateGovernmentsand Union Territories of Andaman & Nicobar Islands and Puducherry through three TechnicianEducation Projects during 19912007, financed by theWorld Bank,which helped to strengthen andupgradethesystemandbenefited552polytechnics.

    ThesuccessoftheseprojectsencouragedtheGovernmentofIndiaandtheStateGovernmentstoseekmorefundingfromtheWorldBankforsystemictransformationoftheTechnicalEducationSystemwithfocus on Degree level Engineering Education. In 200203, the Government of India with financialassistance from theWorld Bank launched a Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme(TEQIP)asa longtermProgramme,tobe implemented inthreephasesforsystemictransformationofthe Technical Education System. The first phase of TEQIP commenced inMarch 2003 and ended inMarch2009,covering127institutionsin13States.Thisprojectcoveredlessthan10%oftheinstitutionsthatexistedthen.
