Goa engineering seats rise up by more than 35% in 2 years

There has been an increase of over 35% in the number of engineering seats in Goa in the past 2 years. The demand for mechanical engineering and electronics communication degree courses has been increasing, while there has been a drop in the demand of civil engineering.

The Goa Engineering College (GEC) run by the state which was established more than 40 years ago, introduced a mining course in 2011 with a total seating capacity of 30. Sources from technical education department revealed that the mining industry in Goa is booming which offers plenty of job opportunities to mining engineers. But the mining course was lacking in Goa which forced students to take up the course from institutes in neighboring states such as Bihar until last year.

The addition of mining course has made the total seats in GEC upto 410.

Till 2010, there were only 3 engineering colleges in the state – Padre Conceicao College of Engineering, Verna with an intake of 252 seats, Shiroda-based RIET with 189 seats, other than GEC-Goan aspirants had no option left other than to pursue courses at engineering colleges in the states of Karnataka and Maharashtra.

But before the academic session 2011-12 started, AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) gave approval to Don Bosco College of Engineering in South Goa for 252 seats in mechanical, computer, civil engineering and electronics communication streams.

This year, AICTE approved 180 seats in Fr Agnel College of Engineering in north Goa for computer engineering, electronics communication and mechanical engineering.

Addition of new engineering seats has taken the total number of seats in Goa from 810 in 2010 to 1272 during this academic year.

However, sources revealed that the rise in number of engineering seats doesn’t imply that the quality of students would be affected. The students not getting admission to engineering colleges in Goa would anyway opt for the courses outside Goa and would return to the state after completing their course.
