The future of engineering courses in the state is not looking good as there is a severe drop in demand for many courses offered by colleges as students have only shown interest in the software-related studies and leaving the rest aside. With this said, many colleges are suffering to make ends meet as they hardly get any admissions. 


JNTUH, in their latest report, revealed that four known colleges in the city had approached them in quick succession to seek progressive closure of their institute. Progressive closure means that they will not be taking any admissions for the academic year 2021-2022. This implies that the current batches will continue, and the college will be defunct once the ongoing batches graduate. 


However, the pandemic had forced few colleges to seek a similar closure last year as they couldn't bag the bare minimum of 25% admissions of the available seats in the college. Moreover, alongside seeking closure, many colleges noticed the demand for traditional courses dropping and decided to stop offering those courses in their institution. 


The request for affiliation from various colleges across the state and the city has also been quite low compared to all the other years as 148 engineering, 73 Pharmacy, and 11 standalone colleges have applied for affiliation with JNTUH for the academic year of 2021-2022. MBA and M.Tech courses have been the pick of the admissions that continued to stay in demand while the engineering demand is just dropping. A state comprised of the most engineers and engineering colleges is now facing some dark realities as courses are reaching disinterest and colleges are getting defunct.
