Despite the second phase of EAMCET counseling in the State, the trouble for the Andhra Pradesh Engineering Colleges still continues. The second phase of counseling concluded on September 9, 2011 and fresh allotments has been made yesterday. It really had not helped the State based Engineering Colleges, as many as 160,000 seats still remain vacant reports IBN Live.
Close to 16000 students exercised options during the second phase and about 15000 seats were allotted. Andhra Pradesh has about 700 Engineering Colleges around 350 Colleges are able to make decent student enrollments and 250 Colleges struggle or fail to impress the Students.
Keeping in view of the increasing cost factor of running an Engineering College, the struggling colleges have to fight out there way. Gone were those days where a student has to struggle hard to take admission in engineering colleges now it is possible to secure admission for any one who just found eligible. 45% in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics and any rank in the state based qualifying exam like EAMCET or CET is what it needs to join an Engineering College.
As the saying goes if left alone markets will come to a normal state by itself, something similar is happening with respect to Engineering Colleges as the supply increased more than the demand, the supply will shrink sooner or later. Colleges can’t sustain without a decent student size on the campus and will be forced to shut shop. Colleges which are doing consistently well will sustain and lead the race.
Andhra Pradesh has reputed Universities like Andhra University based in Visakhapatnam, Hyderabad based Osmania University, Hyderabad based JNTU which also has an University from Kakinada (JNTU Kakinada), deemed universities like GITAM University which is based in Visakhapatnam.
