I think there is something wrong with the numbers

For China to graduate 1 million engineers it will need 4,000 colleges
offering engineering with an average batch of 250. Seems highly improbable.
Also consider that China's population is 4 times US, it cannot graduate 16
times the engineers. I don't think so.

Chinese authorities have a confirmed history of fudging their data when
passing on to the outside world.
