AICTE approves vocational courses

PUBLISH DATE 2nd July 2018

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for the first time is offering 13 vocational courses from 2018-2019 academic session with a view to produce industry-ready Engineering students.

Ruchika Kem, assistant director of Skill Development Cell, AICTE, says, "Most colleges focus on theoretical knowledge, widening the industry-academia gap. So, a need was felt to train the students for jobs that are based in manual or practical activities, traditionally non-academic and related to a specific trade." The courses approved by AICTE include Automobile Servicing, Software Development, Electronics Manufacturing Services, Graphics and Multimedia, Food Processing, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Banking Finance Services and Insurance (BFSI), Production Technology, Industrial Tool Manufacturing, Medical Image Technology and Automotive Manufacturing Technology to name a few.

For the pilot project, around 385 engineering colleges across India have been picked, which will soon introduce diploma, degree and certification courses. "We have a target to train 28000 students this year," says Kem.

Students who want to pursue a diploma course can apply after Class X, people who want to study a threeyear degree course should have passed Class XII and for a certification skill development course, students below Class X can apply. The eligibly criteria will vary from college to college.

Kem says that Uttar Pradesh has the highest number of approved colleges for these vocational courses. "A total of 58 institutes have been given approval in the state of Uttar Pradesh."

She adds the AICTE-approved institutes have the required infrastructure to run these courses, so the existing faculty will teach these courses. "Just like Engineering, a model curriculum will be followed for the smooth running of these courses," says Kem.
