Bangla ahead in jobs for engineering graduates

Bangla is ahead of other States in terms of the percentage of engineering students getting jobs after graduating, according to the latest AICTE data. All India Council for Technical Education is the body responsible for overseeing technical education across the country.

The percentage was 51.45 (27,675 got jobs on passing out of 53,791) in financial year (FY) 2018-19. This percentage, it may be noted, has been rising steadily over the last couple of years, whereas it was 48.46% (26,603 out of 54,897) in FY 2017-18, in FY 2016-17, it was 43.3% (24,914 out of 57,544).

This is much higher than in States like Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh, etc, where many more students enrol but lesser percentages get jobs.

For example, in Gujarat, out of the between 90,000 and one lakh who took admission in 2018-19, only 24,636 got jobs. In Uttar Pradesh, out of around 1.83 lakh, about 68,000 got jobs. In Tamil Nadu, out of 2.5 lakh, 1,81,721 got jobs.

These numbers point to the much better quality of engineering education in Bangla. After all, some of the best institutions and universities in the country are located here.
