Technical institutions in southern India have outperformed their counterparts in the rest of the country roundly on a variety of parameters, an online AICTE-CII survey has found.

Southern technical institutes outperformed: AICTE


While southern institutes achieved an average score of 30.73, northern and western regions managed 24.15 and 24.01, respectively, as compared to that.

Institutes in the central region scored 13.84, coming up last in the survey. Although 1,050 institutions across India had offered to join the online survey, only 148 of those were shortlisted for the final round.

Interestingly, the participation of institutions from the southern region was higher, accounting for 23 per cent of all online submissions. Sharing its key findings at a press briefing here, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) Chairman Dr Mantha said that such studies were important for improving the quality of higher education in the country.

As to the reasons for the south doing well in the survey, he replied that the region had some well-established technical institutions.

Dr YS Rajan, senior professor of ISRO and head of the jury that evaluated the survey, said the findings were a mirror in which the institutes can evaluate where they stand and how they need to improve on various parameters.
