The closed engineering colleges are turning into schools, ITI centers, degree colleges and other institutes throughout Rajasthan.
A sad reality, exposing the claims repeated several times by Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, of state turning into a hub of technical education.
As per the State Government data, over 60 engineering and 80 MBA colleges have closed down owing to poor admissions since the recession (2011).
Jyotika Sachdeva, Public Relations Officer of the IIS School in Sanganer, which was IIIT Engineering College, said that the college was converted into a school two years ago.
“It is running well. The administration has no major changes for converting into a school,” said Sachdeva.
Another development there is that management of colleges are including Humanities or Commerce or other professional courses to tackle the disinterest in engineering.
