Shankaregowda have worked in the field of education sector and we need to work together to take it to a new level. Currently, over 4,000 students are studying in this college.

    In about 10 years time, Karnataka will have more universities than colleges! Mysuru has already 3, a few more will be in the pipe line.
    With all these universities , why students still seek admissions to universities in US, England, NZ, Australia, Canada etc..? Is it because, they want to escape India?

    Quality of Education is more important than quantity. India may have lot of Universities but how many of them provide quality education?

    @Hello, hello!
    It is worth reading the following report from a New Zealand Radio journalist about Indian students swamping that little country in thousands, just to escape Modi’s India!
    Despite Mysuru and India combined having literally a few thousand colleges and universities, Indian students are swamping all Western countries, in very large numbers. The bearded supremo and know-all Modi can boast about his country’s progress. But these many numbers of students, doing anything to escape his country is a damning indictment of what India is today.
    It is not only students, but those trained in IT sweatshops like Infosys, Wipro etc.. and they want to escape too. An advertisement about IT specialists in any Western country draws hundreds of thousands of Indian applicants, all sending their resumes ( CVs) claiming all kinds of skills. Then there are medical graduates and even post graduates who are churned out by medical universities like the one in Mysuru, and they too would rather work as locums or doctors in temporary positions in Western hospitals than to practice in India. Many of them also do odd jobs, unconnected with their education and training, just to survive to live in the Western countries. One wonders, about the wisdom of creating more universities and churning out yet more of these frustrated young men and women.
