Majority of Odisha Students did not prefer Engineering Education in 2014.

The current year OJEE admission to various engineering colleges in Odisha showed surprising results. Out of roughly 45 thousands seats available in 100 private colleges, only 10 thousands got filled. This has created gloomy future for faculty members who are mostly underpaid. Many colleges have started various cost cutting measures like reduction in their staff strength, no annual increments,etc. But unfortunately these college management have not taken any positive initiative to move out of this vicious circle of lower admission-lower income-lower investment-poor student output-lower placement to create positive educational environment. The state needs entrepreneurs to run these professional colleges not businessmen.
