Jawahar Knowledge Centers are an innovative program initiated by Government of Andhra Pradesh to improve employability of the Engineering Graduates. These are popular as JKCs. Apart from students studying in AP Colleges, those from other states also can get transferred to colleges having JKCs. It was designed to accommodate at least five students each among male and women categories from each engineering college. In the initial stage, placements under JKC were given after the second semester of the first year. It was advanced by two months in the second batch in which 1217 candidates were given placement. It was further advanced to the third year to suit industry needs. Applications from students of other states also were received.
1. College - Seat matrix of last year allotments to Engineering Colleges: Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) will publish a booklet containing details of last ranks admitted to various engineering colleges in the state of Andhra Pradesh. These statistics are very much useful for aspiring Engineers as there are more than 600 Engineering colleges in Andhra Pradesh. Candidates can check chances of grabbing a seat in their favourite college and branch based on the past year ranks and seat matrix.
2. MS computers in comparison with conventional integrated engineering graduates: M.S. Computers Courses are almost equal to integrated five year programs in Engineering. There is no significant difference between MS (Software Engineering) and Five Year Integrated M. Tech courses. Students pursuing these courses in big cities are getting better placements because of their communication skills rather than their technical skills. Companies prefer students with good communication skills and grasping power rather than pure technical skills.
3. You might have doubts on choosing a suitable engineering branch if you are good at Mathematics, Physics or Chemistry or any one of these. Students good in physics only can opt for Biotechnology or Chemical Engineering. Those having good knowledge of Mathematics and Physics can go for Electronics or Electrical or Mechanical or Chemical Engineering depending up on their priorities and preferences. If you have good understanding of Chemistry, opting for Chemical Engineering, Biotechnology or Pharmacy can be a right decision. Anyone with interest in technology and mathematical reasoning can pick Computer Science.
