civil engineering

civil engineering has become one of the less preferred branches of engineering. Industry experts estimate that India faces a shortage of 70,000 civil engineers each year.Not surprising as just 200 of the 1,700 technical colleges certified by AICTE offer civil engineering as a course and that means just 10,000 civil engineering graduates per year.The major reasons for the lack of interest in civil engineering are excessive Government control in major projects and a tendency to turn towards foreign technology. An analysis of the courses offered in the 272 engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu reveals that less than 30% of institutions offer civil engineering.To be precise, just 81 of the 272 colleges in the government, aided and self-financing sectors offer civil engineering courses for undergraduates, as per statistics released by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on June 30.Same situation in all other states.
