All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) modifies Engineering Curriculum

The curriculum of engineering courses must be improved further in order to fulfil the future needs of the country, All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) member secretary Dr K Narayana Rao said.

“At present, the varsities are framing the syllabus. But the colleges hold courses in tune with market demand and ignore some subjects. Supposedly, if the country needs mechanical engineers, we can’t import them,” he rued citing the lacunae in the present system.

He delivered the valedictory address at the Incruis 08, a 3-day international conference at Kongu Engineering College today.

“The AICTE, as an advisory body, told the varsities to realize the problem. Now, the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, framed a 3-year basic engineering and 1 year specialized course in the UG for next academic year. Such model can be followed by other varsities,” he said.

Indeed, engineering degree is now a common one. With getting engineering degree, one can specialize in medicine, law and other fields. As the basic concept of engineering is to find solution to problems.

But, unfortunately, our students wish to settle in life with getting job in Infosys or IBM or other IT firms. Some dream to settle abroad, he said.
