All major Engineering streams have the access to fill up these 8000 seats in Gujarat. Some of them are Mechanical and Civil Engineering. However, the total number of Engineering and Pharmacy seats have been raised to 68,731 which is a increase when compared to last years record which had 55,726 engineering degree seats and 5,005 pharmacy seats.
Students having Maths, Physics and Chemistry subjects to get engineering seats have got a right choice and time. This makes them avail seats in easier manner. Along with this, even the passing requirements of class 12 exams has been made easy by the Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board, where it requires only 133 out of a total of 400 marks for obtaining a passing grade.
The Officials said that, last year around 8000 seats had remained vacant in such engineering streams which were not popular. There was a rush for Mechanical, Civil and Engineering seats as these held better career options. Moreover, colleges which had requested for additional seats have not got the approval from the AICTE also.
MN Patel, a member of the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC) said that the approval of the new seats was given well in advanced, and that greater number of seats would mean options available to students.
The need of more and more engineering seats shows how students are interested in career building courses like Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and more.
