Bangalore most preferred job city for Engineering students

Seven out of every 10 engineering students in India prefer Bangalore as their 'first job' city, ahead of the capital Delhi, reveals a survey.

According to employability measurement and recruitment firm Aspiring Minds Research Cell, about 72 per cent of the engineering students surveyed voted for Bangalore as the most preferred destination to work in.

"In India, Bangalore is the engineers' Mecca. It offers growth, options and a community of like-minded people. Bangalore has undoubtedly the largest base in terms of IT companies, opportunities and an existing engineering population," Aspiring Minds Founder and Director Himanshu Aggarwal said.

Bangalore was followed by Delhi, which was preferred by 32 per cent of the respondents, while Hyderabad was the favourite among 30 per cent of the students surveyed.

At fourth place is Pune, with 30 per cent of the respondents voting for the city, followed by Chennai, which was favoured by 23 per cent of students. Mumbai was sixth in the list of preferred cities for engineers.

Regional preferences emerge strongly, as students from the South, West and North of the country voted for Bangalore, Pune and Delhi, respectively, as their favourite city. For easterners, Bangalore was the favourable option. Chandigarh and Mysore also emerged as preferred destinations for engineering students in the survey.

The survey took into account the views of 19,000 engineering students across India. It was undertaken to determine the city preferences of students and allowed the respondents to specify up to three cities.

India can produce 2,500 MW power from waste: Study

Energy deficient India can produce 2,500 MW electricity by 2012 by recycling millions of tonnes of municipal and industrial waste generated each year, an Assocham study has said. About 40,000 million tonnes of solid waste and 5,000 million cubic metre of liquid waste is generated every year in the urban areas which can be suitably recycled, it said."Expedite setting up of waste energy projects as there is potential of generating 2,500 MW of power from urban, municipal and industrial wastes in large cities to partly meet energy shortages," it said.

The study estimates that about 1,500 MW of power could be generated from urban and municipal wastes by setting up waste energy projects and additional 1,000 MW from industrial wastes in the country by 2012.Assocham has suggested that funds required -- around Rs 200 crore -- could be generated through municipalities and local governments.It further that India has potential to reduce its projected emissions over next 30 years by near…
