Engineering in India and JEE Main

Engineering in India and JEE Main

India is one of the largest producer of engineers in the world. India produces 1.5 million engineers every year from 4000 institutes. India produces more engineers then USA and China combined.

Engineering in India has become like an extension of their Higher Secondary education after grade 12th. More or less, around 90% of the PCM students opt for Engineering.

All top courses like computer science & engineering, communication engineering, chemical engineering, biotechnology, information technology and mechanical engineering are offered by the engineering colleges.

The practice is to teach engineering concepts and fundamentals mostly through imaginary examples. Engineers are a significant source of technological innovation and expertise. They focus their brainpower on solving problems through the application of science and mathematics, discovering new ways to make life better for the general public. The goals and objectives of engineers revolve around creating processes and designs, as well as maintenance and operations duties in a variety of different disciplines.The goals and objectives of engineers change according to the genre of technology with which they work.
