MUMBAI: Seventeen engineering institutes in Maharashtra, which received special funding under a World Bank programme to improve technical education, have seen a 6% and 12% increase in campus placements in undergraduate (UG) and post-graduate (PG) courses, respectively.

In the second phase of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP), which ran from academic years 2011-12 to 2016-17, the central and state governments provided Rs228.9 crore to these institutes.

Out of the 190 institutes that were selected for this project from across India, 17 were from Maharashtra.

Of these, six are governmentrun, eight are governmentaided, and three are private institutes.

A project report prepared by the Directorate of Technical Education revealed that on an average, 63.64% of the UG students from these institutes got jobs during campus placements during the programme. Prior to that, the institutes recorded an average placement of 57.30%. The proportion of PG students who got placed on campus also increased from 40.9% to 53.5%.

“Thanks to TEQIP, we worked with more rigour and in a targeted manner. It pushed us to understand requirements and train students accordingly,” said a professor from Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute, Matunga, which recorded 100% placement in both UG and PG. “We focused on domains that needed more attention, and students were counselled and their communication skills enhanced,” the teacher said.
