AICTE 2023

Working Professionals can now Obtain BTech and BE Degrees from Institutions Accredited with AICTE

According to officials, technical colleges in India can now provide working professionals with Bachelor of Technology and Bachelor of Engineering programmes.

The decision was made to aid students who cannot afford the cost of higher technical education but are looking for possibilities to get a degree while working and to enable working professionals to continue their education, according to the officials.

According to officials, technical colleges that are accredited with the AICTE can now provide working professionals with Bachelor of Technology and Bachelor of Engineering programmes. The regulator has issued an invitation to these institutions to submit applications in order to commence the courses during this academic year.

The decision was made to aid students who cannot afford the cost of higher technical education but are looking for possibilities to get a degree while working and to enable working professionals to continue their education, according to the officials.

A maximum of three programmes will be approved by AICTE per institute with an approved intake of 30 seats each, AICTE member secretary Rajive Kumar said. “A batch of minimum 10 working professionals will be required to run the course in an academic year,” he said. “The core disciplines with specialization in upcoming technologies will be given preference.”

These will not be part-time courses but will be offered in the regular mode, Kumar said. “They will be designed as per the convenience of students and institutions, with flexible timings and modes. This is a continuous education programme for in-service persons for their professional upgradation. We are aiming to start at least one to four institutions in each district,” he added.

The technical schools will be allowed to decide their mode of conducting classes online or offline, schedules and timetables, Kumar said.

Only working professionals in recognised industries or organizations will be eligible to take admission in these programmes. “The applicants will also have to submit an undertaking from their employer with the institutions,” Kumar said.

A need-based analysis has to be done before taking any decision of starting these programmes, said JP Saini, vice-chancellor of Netaji Subhas University of Technology. “Overall, it is a good initiative and we will put it before our statutory bodies.

We will take a decision regarding this in the next academic session because the admission process for this year is almost over for both NSUT and DTU,” said Saini, who has additional charge of Delhi Technical University (DTU).
