Abstract:

This paper analyzes in detail the rapid expansion of higher educated engineers in India. It summarizes the available general data on the growth of higher education in India and conditions in the labor market for engineers and other higher education graduates and draws on an extensive survey of colleges and universities in four Indian states that produce and employ close to the majority of Indian technical higher education graduates. The theoretical framework is State theory, which analyses the rapid privatization of India's engineering education through by viewing that privatization through the prism of a public sector taking advantage of rapidly changing conditions in a global economy. It also analyzes the current quality of graduates, and assesses the prospects for quality improvement in the context of this privatization strategy. It concludes that India seems to have found a “low public cost” formula for expanding its technically trained human capital but is doing so at the sacrifice of quality.
