New knowledge , curriculum changes need in Engineering edu Faqir Chand Kohli 

” In engineering education, the country is not producing enough Masters and PhDs that this country requires to meet the faculty needs, research, design and innovation. The education system for preparing students for PhDs starts at undergraduate level. It is excellence of education at undergraduate level that is a prerequisite for graduate school education, research etc. We, therefore, need to provide autonomy in governance, financial independence, faculty, advanced curriculum and facilities like libraries and world-class labs. What I am suggesting is that it is time that we paid attention to education and matters that affect education. Faculties must be encouraged and enabled to be involved in generation of new knowledge.
