Engineering Education – Anna University
AICTE & UGC: The role of these agencies is highly questionable analogous. These two agencies’ rationale of permitting as many number of Higher Engineering Institutions and granting University status to many of these institution need urgent review. Whole lot of Universities!!! In what way they improved technical education scenario of the country? Giving away degrees in an unscrupulous manner. Producing bunch of unproductive but qualified!!! man power are all big joke. Is there any single person in these agencies with a brain of the size of an ant? Illogical comparison with developed countries!!!
There was big cry from someone in these university to bring IITs, IISc, IIMs under the umbrella of these agencies (Open Page on The Hindu). The Bunch of Jokers will spoil these premier institutions as well.
Managements of Self financing Institutions and so called (Deemed) Universities: only eye for profit. They are least interested in bringing quality education on this country.
Infrastructure: means few computers in labs. In many colleges Computing facilities are show pieces when (stupid) parents come visiting for an admission for their ward.
Students: who enter into these institutions (thanks to getting rid of entrance tests!!! Try removing JEE as well) are absolutely mud horses – always getting carried by the Indian cinema and holding a cell phone (at times more than one) lacking sense of ambition, sense of science, sense of Engineering but desperate to get an engineering degree.
Teachers: An year back was a student in a Self financing institution. Now on the Dias, blabbering some thing, most of the time nothing about subject.
Principals: (Most of them, almost 90%) A puppet in the hands of Managements. Did some Ph. D. (Mind it some Ph. D.) Ambitious in seeing their kids in the USA or UK and at their fag end of their profession!!! to mint money and enjoy the status of being a principal. Ready to do whatever the mgmts. say. Neither their staff respect them nor the students respect them.
Books: Former Vice Chancellor of AU, Chennai in every function encouraged faculty of Self financing colleges to do cut/copy paste jobs. He even mocked at “can’t you do this simple job of cut/copy paste”.
Seminars, Conferences, Work Shops: Many do not really understand these.
Publishers: Too many local publishers. If they don’t publish your work, start a publishing house of your own and publish it at any cost. (There are examples)
Publications: Are must. Do what ever, publish it. If possible patent it. Copy/Paste, Change here and there, Change the title, Don’t forget to replace the name of the authors with yours, don’t forget to include guide’s name (very important), By this you and your guide can improve the count. Ask your friends to quote your paper in their paper and you too quote their’s. Citation count is important too. (These counts are a boasting things for both faculty and institutions) You get all paid trip and … as an incentive!!!!) (look into the employment advertisements in the dailies)
God! too much to write about. I am tired. I will come back.
