After the first round of EAMCET counseling in the State of Andhra Pradesh as many as 70,000 engineering seats remained vacant. In the 70,000 seats 11,400 seats is the count of seats which were opted by students in the first phase of counseling either the student failed or not turned up for reporting with in the stipulated deadline reports Deccan Chronicle.
Engineering colleges in the State are hit hard this year, mean while the state council of higher education has issued a notification to conduct second phase of counseling from September 5, 2011. During the first phase of counseling about 1,33,521 students were allotted so far only 1,21,781 have reported to their respected colleges.
Colleges are worried about how they should move if the seats still remain vacant after the second phase. The vacant seats will be placed on September 5, 2011 on http://apeamcet.nic.in/
With increase in number of engineering colleges few colleges find it hard to even get 10 students per branch. These colleges have to think hard on ways to attract students, the best way they could do this is working on placement tie ups, quality faculty and improving infrastructure.
So what is your opinion?
