In another significant move, the All Indian Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has on December 15, 2017 issued new rules of admission for students in Engineering Colleges, saying that these rules will be applicable with effect from the academic year 2018-19.

The AICTE has also issued guidelines for cancellation of affiliation of Engineering Colleges.

While making the induction training (for 3 weeks) mandatory for all the first year students, the educational body in its Approval Process Handbook (APH) 2018-19 has advised all colleges to have smart classrooms.

Meeting the long-pending demand of the engineering colleges, the AICTE has changed the faculty-student ratio for engineering programmes from the present 1:15 to 1:20.

“For every post graduate course, there should be at least one professor with PhD qualification. Cadre ratio (professors: assistant professors: lecturers) shall be 1:2:6,” the AICTE said.

The AICTE in its Approval Process Handbook has also changed the land requirements for Engineering colleges. The mandatory land requirement to set up a college in urban areas has been reduced from 2.5 acres to 1.5 acres and in rural areas, the land requirement has been reduced from 7.5 acres to 4 acres.
