Rate It

Engineering colleges in S0uth India are increasing day by day. In kerala state, there are many engineering colleges with best Facilities for Engineering aspirants. But, after failing to get enough students from Kerala, private self-financing engineering colleges are now eyeing foreign students, especially from Bhutan, Nepal, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka.

Recently, President of Kerala Self Financing Engineering College Management Association said, “We are submitting a proposal to the government that there should be no entrance exam for 50% seats – that includes 30% management, 15% NRK and 5% NRI seats – and we should be allowed to admit students from not only other states but also other countries,”

More details for Kerala Self Financing Engineering College:

Kerala is the most educated state of India. Kerala Self Financing Engineering College is also called as KSFECMA and it has representatives from 120 private colleges. Rules state that any institute that has AICTE approval to admit foreign nationals can admit them through the ministry of overseas Indian affairs. As of now, only five private engineering institutes in the state have permission to admit foreign students and this year Rajagiri School of Engineering & Technology has admitted seven students from Africa.

Many educationists remain sceptical. “With the present poor infrastructure and facilities in the colleges, it would be difficult for them to attract foreign students. The number of engineering colleges are now more than the demand and closing some of the institutes that fare poorly is the only option,” said B Iqbal.

Sasikumar said, “KSFECMA will seek AICTE approval to admit foreign students. To attract students from other states, they will ask the government to ensure that the Controller of Entrance Examinations sets up an exam centre in each state capital and the entrance exam should be conducted online so that students don’t have to come to Kerala, besides doing away with normalization. “We will submit a detailed proposal to the government on Tuesday.”
