Seven select engineering colleges, that are soon to attain the coveted IIT status, are back in the news.
The seven colleges are:
Aligarh Muslim University-Zakir Hussain College of Engineering and Technology, Aligarh, UP.
Andhra University -College of Engineering
Banaras Hindu University-Institute of Technology (IT-BHU)
Bengal Engineering College
Cochin University of Science and Technology (CUSAT)
Jadavpur University’s Engineering and Technology Departments
Osmania University-College of Engineering and College of Technology
Now, seems to me that something is missing. A small college in South India, called Anna University, a source of great talent, a temple of learning has not even been in the race.
The full story is here.
My worry is that the IIT brand will get diluted. What do you think?
