IET_Logo_It Voice IET interviews with Affiliate & Partner  colleges reveal engineering  admission    trends

  • Male students outnumber female students 3:1 for engineering streams
  • Core engineering streams like Chemical, Mechanical and Electronics are preferred choice for engineering students
  • Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Electronics remains the high preference for female engineering students

In an effort to better understand the trends this admission season, the world’s leading engineering professional society – the IET has conducted interviews with six of its Academic Affiliate and Partner colleges across India. The interviews have revealed a resurgence of core engineering streams like civil and mechanical engineering amongst the engineering aspirants in comparison to the previously popular choice of IT.

The IET is deeply engaged with Technical Education in India. Among our goals is to work closely with the academia, industry, government and related stakeholders to help India in its endeavours to achieve excellence in Technical Education. The interviews were conducted to gauge the admissions in the engineering streams this year. The responses from our Academic Affiliates and Partners have revealed some remarkable aspects. We are happy to note that traditional engineering streams are showing higher acceptance and that more female students are taking up core engineering as a choice. This is definitely a very encouraging sign and will have a positive impact on India’s engineering eco-system in the mid to long term”, said Azra Fathima, Head of Marketing and Communications, IET India.
