AICTE to unveil new engineering syllabus on Jan 24

To cater to the latest technological requirements, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) will on January 24, 2018 unveil an industry-specific syllabus for all engineering colleges.

To be implemented from next academic year, the new syllabus will be unveiled by Union Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar at the AICTE office in New Delhi.

“Over 11 expert subject committees have been working on suggestions to revamp the old syllabus in order to include the latest advancements in engineering and technology,” AICTE Chairman Dr Anil Sahasrabudhe told Indian Express in Pune.

“The current engineering syllabus… has become very old. That’s why… changes have been made in the syllabus. By next week, the new engineering syllabus will be announced and from the next academic year, all engineering colleges across the country will start implementing it,” he added.

He said that students taking admission in engineering courses from next academic year will have to undergo a three-week orientation programme as part of the new syllabus.

“For the first time, students who take admission in engineering courses would have to undergo a mandatory three-week orientation programme which would be part of their syllabus,” Sahasrabudhe told The Indian Express.

“The students come from diverse backgrounds… many of them come from rural areas and may not be well-versed in English, even though they are bright students. At this stage, they start developing an inferiority complex and a positive intervention for these students is necessary in the first few weeks… so that they don’t feel left out. It is necessary to create a level playing field and that’s what these orientation workshops would do,” he said.

Saying that the orientation programme would focus on interaction between teachers and students, he said many programmes such as yoga, cultural activities, competitions would be part of the workshop.

“The three-week workshops would focus on areas such as interaction between teachers and students, to enable healthy exchange of ideas between the two,” he said, adding, “Every student would have to participate, and yoga, cultural activities, competitions and such programmes would be part of the workshop.

Highlighting that a handbook has been prepared for teachers to help them teach it, he said the new syllabus will help students with better job prospects.

“A handbook has been prepared for teachers to help them teach it,” he said, adding, “The updated syllabus will be more tuned to the industry’s needs and will help students with better job prospects.”
