Comprehensive Engineering Teaching & Learning Solution
The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) committee on faculty shortage has assessed that there is a shortage of 3.8 lakh teachers at the higher education level, which is 50 per cent of the current requirement. It estimates that after a decade, the requirement of college teachers will be 13 lakh.
The teacher-student ratio is badly skewed at the moment. Overall, it is nearly 21 students for each teacher whereas the University Grant Commission (UGC) norm for the undergraduate courses is 1:15 and for the postgraduate courses it is 1:13.5.
This shortage of quality faculty is being felt acutely by the new colleges, which have difficulty attracting experienced staff. New colleges are forced to opt for less experienced and qualified teachers.
There is a marked difference in the experience of faculty of top-rung colleges and the rest. While the average faculty experience in top colleges is between 10 and 15 years, the average faculty experience in other colleges is 0-5 years.
Students join engineering with aspiration of fulfilling their career ambitions, be it employment or higher education. Faculty play a vital role in realizing student dreams and moulding them into well rounded professionals.
The two concerns, i.e., Shortage of faculty and quality of the faculty are plaguing the system and have to be addressed to enhance teaching-learning experience and fulfill student aspirations.
