Guwahati: To connect the northeast with Kerala, the Kerala Self-Financing Engineering College Managements’ Association has urged students from the region to get themselves enrolled in institutions in the southern state this year. Till 2015, the association would reserve all seats in engineering colleges under it for local students. From this year, however, it has decided to keep 20% of the seats across 43 engineering colleges for non-local students. The association has 117 member institutions. “We believe the decision to allow non-local students admission in engineering colleges in Kerala would help both Keralite and non-Keralite students. The state-of-the-art engineering colleges will impart quality education to students of the northeast. We have digital classrooms and well-equipped laboratories,” said Sunil Dath, an association representative.
