AICTE to Shut 800 Engineering Colleges Over Low Quality and Admissions

aicte-colleges


The All India Council for Technical Education has decided to shut a total of 800 engineering colleges across India as admissions in colleges have dropped down over last few years.

There are approx,150 colleges which are closed down voluntarily every year due to stricter AICTE rules. According to a rule of the council, colleges that lack proper infrastructure and report less than 30% admissions for five consecutive years will have to be shut down.

The progressive closure means that these colleges would not be conducting any fresh admissions from next academic session but would continue with the existing batches, till they complete.

A total of 65 engineering colleges will be shut down in 2017. AICTE has released a list of 65 institutes which cannot admit students in first year engineering programme. However, the existing students will continue.

According to TOI report, Sahasrabudhe said,”Most engineering college professors or lecturers are MTech or PhD holders. They don’t usually have experience in teaching aspiring engineers. Now onwards, any engineering college lecturer joining anew will have to undergo six months of exclusive and compulsory training so that they can train future engineers better. Existing engineer lecturers have three years to undergo this training compulsorily.’

From this academic year, every second and third year student will have to undergo a compulsory internship so that they are hired even before campus placement. As per TOI report, Sahasrabudhe said,”Internship is the time when most students are observed by companies and have a fair chance of being absorbed. So it’s better to be hired that way instead of depending on just five minutes of the interview at campus placements. My advice to budding engineers is that they should be attentive and hardworking during the internship.”
