The sources recall that last year the vacant seats were around 40,000 and this year increased to 20,000 plus seats going vacant. This was instead expected going by the growing difference between demand and supply in the engineering sector of education.
However, besides all these growing concerns for the down-slide in the quality of infrastructure and faculty in many of the institutions. The most unexpected fact is that it is likely that a dozen more engineering colleges are likely to harvest by the end of this year's admission process.
Well, it seams that the demand for arts and science courses has gone up, as Coimbatore colleges have filled their arts and science seats successfully. And, less than a three-forth of engineering colleges are able to fill their seats by building a positive image through judicious investments in infrastructure and faculty, and consecutively good results in examinations and campus recruitment's too.
