Andhra Pradesh bifurcation unlikely to hit higher education sector

The bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into Telangana and Seemandhra is unlikely to have an impact on the education sectors of both the regions.

Of the 42 universities in the state, 34 are state universities, three central and five deemed. Coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema have 10 state universities each, while Telangana has 14. Besides, there are 700 private engineering colleges spread across the state.

While the admission to state universities and private engineering colleges is in the proportion of 85:15 for local (region-wise) and non-local students, half the seats in central universities are for state candidates. Private deemed universities have the autonomy to frame their own rules.

“With the existing local and non-local system in place for state universities and private engineering colleges, there is no reason for non-Telangana students to worry about loss of opportunities,” said Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Hyderabad, Registrar N V Ramana Rao.

Universities and colleges located close to the capital city have a slight advantage over those in other regions of Telangana, as these provide additional programmes, including job-oriented soft skills enhancement and various training programmes. (మరింత…)
