AICTE Has Recommended Different Nomenclatures For Engineering Courses

A condemnatory report against the All India Council For Technical Education (AICTE) by a state-level expert committee says, "It is clear that there are too many inadequate institutes with innumerable programmes and considerable examples of misleading nomenclatures.”

The calculation says that India has 234 degree and 399 diploma engineering courses. "It is unfavorable that the AICTE has approved different nomenclatures for basic engineering courses and increased the number of undergraduate engineering programmes, which is reminiscent of the ruination of engineering education," the report says.

Entered as separate courses in ACITE handbook are electrical and electronics engineering, electrical engineering, electrical and power engineering, electrical and electronics (power system). The committee has proposed that the courses will be offered as one programme, i.e. electrical engineering.

It is stated that there are 42 degree programmes in electrical engineering and electronics all with foreign nomenclature, which reveal that these have been created for the ease of private institutes.
A member of the committee said that “A new college has to start with a minimum student absorption of 300, distributed equally among five branches. Different nomenclatures benefit predominated institutes that want only popular disciplines,”

In a report it is said that “In India, more diploma holders are granted to seek degree programmes to fill vacancies and more management institutes are created to provide a channel to the increasing number of unemployable engineering graduates. As there are no corresponding opportunities in the manufacturing sector, the higher education system produces pools of ill-trained, unemployable professionals going for poorly paid jobs.”
