Boys overpowering girls in core branches of core engineering courses, in Bangalore colleges.
There has been a noticeable gender difference among students enrolling for core engineering courses in Bangalore colleges. Top engineering colleges have noticed bias towards male students preferring core Engineering courses, when compared to the other gender students, who prefer rather off-beat, creative courses. Reputed Bangalore colleges who tops the chart for top 10 engineering colleges in Bangalore, have revealed the fact that they have observed such a bias towards core courses by guys when compared to girls. Colleges like PES Institute of technology, RV College of Engineering, University of Visvesvaraya College of Engineering have revealed that among the offered core streams in their respective institutes, a calculated number of girls are found studying among a massive class of male students.
Note worthy facts:
- University of Visvesvaraya College of Engineering(UVCE) – has 107 students for Mechanical Engineering, all guys!
- PES Institute of technology (PESIT, now PES University) – has 184 students enrolled in Mechanical Engineering, with 3 girls!
- RV College of Engineering (RVCE) – has 556 students enrolled in Mechanical Engineering, among them 15 are girls, whereas Chemical Engineering witnesses 39 girls among 175 students.
- BMS College of Engineering (BMSCE) – 1st year Civil Engineering class has 110 boys dominating 29 girls in gender ratio.
While the core streams has seen a low interest in female candidates, engineering courses like Architecture, Bio-technology or Environmental Engineering has grabbed attention for the fairer sex. Creativity and flexibility in these courses are the main reasons for young women approaching these courses. Bio-technology is preferred due to its touch with Biology subject, generally preferred by girls in their school days as well! However , Computer Science, Electronics and Communication and Information Science are among few branches which has comparatively equal sex-ratio of 40:60 approximately. This shows that girls prefer career options which make them think, rather than options related to much of manual stress and physical movement.
