COMEDK will fill 10,000 technical jobs, an official says

The Consortium of Medical, Engineering, and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMEDK) is preparing for the next academic year. Around 10,000 technical jobs are expected to be filled through their assessment test, said Dr. S. Kumar, Executive Secretary of COMEDK, a leading daily news newspaper. Last year, despite 20,000 available places, only 6,900 candidates were admitted to engineering courses through the consortium. The delayed start of engineering courses was given as the reason for the low number of admissions in 2022.

The upcoming academic year looks promising as available places under COMEDK have increased to 22,000. The assessment test, dubbed COMEDK-Uni-GAUGE Under Graduate Entrance Test (UGET) 2023 entrance exam, is scheduled for May 28 and is expected to attract over a lakh of students. The exam is administered online in over 150 cities across India with over 400 testing centers available. Interested students can apply online until April 24th.

The upcoming COMEDK UGET 2023 exam is scheduled to last three hours. The exam consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQs), with applicants receiving a score for each correct answer. Notably, there will be no negative mark on the exam, offering some relief to candidates who may have struggled with such a policy on previous exams. Applicants will receive hall tickets on May 18th. You can download the COMEDK 2023 hall ticket online with your access data.

COMEDK is also launching an initiative called COMED KARES, which aims to equip students from participating institutions with the necessary skills to become professionally ready through skills improvement courses. To achieve this, COMED KARES has established eight Innovation Centers across Karnataka, four of which are located in Bengaluru while the remaining four are located in Mysuru, Kalaburagi, Mangaluru and Belagavi. Each hub is equipped with high-end equipment, and students are offered programs such as rapid prototyping, robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT). dr Kumar stressed that with this initiative, Karnataka has become the first state to introduce competency-based education at private engineering colleges.
