ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “CM to open new buildings in UoM campus”

  1. Mann Ki Baat! says:

    Once the engineering and computer science students graduate, they will try to emigrate, applying for work viasa to all Western countries, to escape India. Indian IT techies are prepared to work for lower pay as long as these jobs are in the Western countries!
    My question is: I see thousands of Indian students applying to Western universities for the degree courses, while there are so many universities like this UOM exist in India today? Why? In Britain alone, over 300, 000 students have applied to do for degree courses, In Australia,-250 , 000 Indian students have applied and even in the tiny New Zealand over 150, 000 Indian students have applied to do degree courses. All these students apply for the computer science courses. Why?
