There will be no additional fees for the students. It will have three credits each semester for six semesters. Starting from the first semester of the second year of engineering in 2024, we are introducing economics as a compulsory course. Faculty members of Gokhale Institute will come to our campus. They will also evaluate the students, he added.Ajit Ranade, vice-chancellor of the institute, said the National Education Policy is about interdisciplinary courses, flexibility and experiential learning and institutes are opening up to these concepts. One of the oldest engineering colleges and economics institute in the country are coming together. The college will also offer its knowledge and skilled faculty for students of Gokhale Institute to conduct short courses in data sciences, artificial intelligence and machine learning, Ranade said. Pramod Chaudhari, chairman of the board of governance in CoEPTU, said that economics will add to the overall development of engineers.

Previously, companies would hire in large numbers and offer lower-salary packages to hundreds of students. However, this year, the number of offers from mass recruiters has significantly reduced, with only a small number of students being hired. On the other hand, there has been an increase in the number of companies offering higher salary packages, which has raised the average salary. This shift is due to the more stringent selection process and increased expectations from corporates.
