Poor Performance in Engineering Colleges – 2 Year Lifeline to Improve
15 April 2013
Poor Performances by students in Engineering colleges made cabinet to decide if colleges don’t improve on their pass percentage and continue to have less than 25 % pass percentage, they will not be allowed to take students from academic year 2015-16. Poor performing engineering colleges, having pass percentage of less than 25%, get two-year lifeline to improve their performance.
From this academic year, underperforming colleges will not be allowed to start new courses,” said higher education department joint secretary M Sherif. The higher education department is yet to get a list of engineering colleges which have less than 25% students passing exams in the first and second year, less than 30% in third year and less than 40% in the final year from the affiliating university. The decision comes after Kerala High Court recently observed that self-financing engineering colleges where pass percentage was less than 40 % should be closed down and the students of such nonperforming colleges should be shifted to other institutions.
A recent order holds that each college will have to submit a two-year action plan with 6 monthly break-ups by September 30 with respect to the improvement of infrastructure, qualification of existing faculty and improvement in results. The government will conduct a half-yearly review to ensure effective implementation of the action plan.
