Need of the Higher Edcation : Why and How?

To compete successfully in the knowledge-based economy of the 21st century, We should not focused only Clerical Jobs but also try to be Technological Independent by providing research opportunities in India via higher studies.

Need of the Higher Education:

INDIA is headlong toward economic success and modernization, counting on high-tech industries to name a few are IT, Automobile and biotechnology to propel the nation to prosperity. Unfortunately, its weak higher education system is the major hurdle in the technological growth. Its systematic disinvestment in higher education in recent years has yielded not world-class research programs nor very highly trained scholars, scientists, or managers to sustain high-tech development.

There was a time when countries could achieve economic success with cheap labor and low-tech manufacturing. Low wages still help, but contemporary large-scale development requires a sophisticated and at least partly knowledge-based economy.

What world is doing for higher Education :

India's main competitors — especially China but also Singapore, Taiwan, and South Korea — are investing in large and differentiated higher education systems. They are providing access to large numbers of students at the bottom of the academic system while at the same time building some research-based universities that are able to compete with the world's best institutions. The recent London Times Higher Education Supplement ranking of the world's top 200 universities included three in China, three in Hong Kong, three in South Korea, one in Taiwan, and one in India (an Indian Institute of Technology at number 41— the specific campus was not specified). These countries are positioning themselves for leadership in the knowledge-based economies of the coming era.

What India have:

India has significant advantages in the 21st century knowledge race. It has a large higher education sector — the third largest in the world in student numbers, after China and the United States. It uses English as a primary language of higher education and research. It has a long academic tradition. Academic freedom is respected.
