Engineering Admissions in Tamilnadu has been so far every year conducted at Anna University Guindy campus, Chennai. But due to technological advancements and to ease process, TNEA counseling to be conducted online from this year, a govt reports said.
Anna University has more than 500 engineering colleges in its affiliation and every year during June-July the TNEA Counselling is being conducted to admit eligible students for B.E / B.Tech courses.
It was in the year 2014, Registration for TNEA was made online only eliminating Offline application form issue centres across the state in all districts.
Now the process of applying for engineering admissions in Tamilnadu has been simplified.
But due to huge unemployment for engineering degree holders, large number of seats were left unfilled in last year’s counselling.
Studnets now know there is less scope for engineering related jobs in the state, and many choose to go with medical related courses.
But that too has huge obstacle of condition to write NEET exam.
For the past few years, Tamilnadu Agricultural University has got large number of students interested in joining agri related courses in the state.
As soon as the Tamilnadu plus 2 results 2018 are declared in the month of May, we may know where much of 9+ lakhs of students show interests too.
Engineering colleges in Tamilnadu has been struggling to operate due to low number of seats filled through anna university counselling.
Now, in 2018, Anna University is set to conduct Engineering Counselling online so that students need not to visit Anna University in Chennai.
Every year, thousands of students was required to travel hundreds of kilometers from far end of the state to Chennai to attend TNEA counselling.
It is going to change, for good reason.
Whether the number of students applying for engineering will rise or fall, we’ll only be able to know once the Online registration goes live!
