CHENNAI: Students from government colleges will now have a chance to go out of the country and study like their counterparts in private colleges.   Annually, about 100 students from 10 government engineering colleges will be sent to foreign universities and colleges for a period of 15 days for technical training, announced chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the assembly on Tuesday. Expressing a wish to also see government college students get similar opportunities that private college students enjoy, the chief minister said that this project would be taken up at the cost of 1.5 crore.  Jayalalithaa said over the last 5 years, four government engineering colleges have been set up along with 42 arts and science government colleges, 16 government technical colleges, one national law school and one ICT institute.  The government is also spending 10 lakh to train engineering students and graduates for the engineering services examination. The fund will be used to set up 10 centres in Chennai, Dharmapuri, Coimbatore, Trichy and Tirunelveli districts. During the assembly on Tuesday, the CM said the state stood first in the country with regard to the percentage of people pursuing higher education. –  Courtesy
