UPSEE 2014:1.24 lakh engineering seats left vacant


After the conclusion of the UPSEE 2014 counselling, 1.24 lakh engineering seats have been found lying vacant in the colleges of Uttar Pradesh.

UPTU has started the UPSEE 2014 counselling on June 27.

It has been found that only 23,000 students out of 1.38 lakh students confirmed admission in engineering colleges.

Around 1.47 lakh engineering seats are available for admission in 300 engineering colleges across the state. More than 97,000 seats were to be filled through UPSEE 2014 counselling.

The remaining seats were supposed to be filled through direct admissions and JEE Main 2014 scores.

A total of 1.38 lakh candidates had appeared for the Uttar Pradesh State Engineering Examination (UPSEE) 2014.

On an average, 20% of the seats were lying vacant in government colleges. UPTU plans to conduct special counselling to fill the seats and it would be held from August 8 to 9.

Private engineering colleges have already started direct admission to their 15% of management quota seats.

These 30,000 students have confirmed their admission in engineering, management, pharmacy, fashion designing, hotel management and others. For MBA, only 2,500 students against 44,000 seats have confirmed admissions.

"Vacant faculty posts and lack of infrastructure is keeping students away from technical institutes. Employment is a major factor which create hurdles in admissions in UP colleges," said an official.
