AICTE permits for admitting Students in New Engineering Courses

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has permitted the Appa Institute of Engineering Technology, Gulbarga to admit students for M. Tech. courses in computer science engineering (CSE) and the undergraduate course in mechanical engineering.

The institute has also sought AICTE’s approval to introduce postgraduate courses in electronics and communication, and computer networking as part of the CSE program.

President of the Sharanabasaveshwar Vidya Vardak Sangha Poojya Sharanbasvappa Appa told press persons here on 10th March, 2011 that he was confident that AICTE would clear their proposals to start engineering colleges in Gulbarga and Bidar, and allow students to be admitted for undergraduate courses from the next academic year.

He said that all of AICTE’s conditions had been fulfilled and a team from the Visvesvaraya Technological University had inspected the facilities available in the two colleges – Godutai Engineering College for Women (Gulbarga) and Lingarajappa Engineering College (Bidar).

The admission process for the Godutai Engineering College was cancelled last year after CET counselling and allotment of seats was completed, as AICTE withdrew its permission.

Various Branches

Dr. Appa said the sangha proposed to start courses in electronics and communication, computer science, information science, and electrical and electronic engineering at the college in Gulbarga.

Courses in electronics and communication, electrical and electronic, civil, computer science and information science branches of engineering would be started in the Lingarajappa Engineering College.

AICTE had already given permission to start an MBA programme for engineering graduates in the Appa Institute of Engineering Technology, he added.
