AICTE Revamps Engineering & Technical Syllabus to Make India Industry-Ready; Industrial Internships Mandatory, Theory Credit Reduced to 160
For the academic year of 2018-19, AICTE has approved 290 pharmacy colleges certified to give diplomas to applicants along with 102 technical institutes aiding under-graduate and post-graduate degrees in medicine.
AICTE has presented the revised curriculum for Engineering and Technical courses in India to meet Industry demands, the key changes being reduction of number of credits in theory from 220 to 160 and inclusion of 14 credits in the updated 160.

The new curriculum or syllabus is practical focused and will give weightage to lab assignments and practicals apart from theoretical knowledge only. The AICTE event was attended by Union Human Resources Development Minister Prakash Javadekar. "I am very happy to be at @AICTE_INDIA as it has come out with comprehensive Model Curriculum document," Javadekar tweeted while posing with the revised Model Curriculum developed by the All India Council for Technical Education.

The new curriculum will include mandatory internship of engineering students in Industrial set up which will enable students to understand the needs of industry better, at an elementary stage.


"Industrial and Social Internship is needed for Engineering students.I am happy that Board of Apprenticeship has created 5 lakh seats for internship @AICTE_INDIA #TransformingEducation #QualityEducation #NewIndia." tweeted the Union Minister, MHRD.

The inclusion of mandatory Industrial internship is aimed at honing the practical skills of engineering students and making them job ready and practically skilled. Engineering students will be required to do 2-3 months of internship to make them industry-ready. Although Javadekar insisted on Social Internship along with Industrial, however, whether the former will be made mandatory or not, is not clear as yet.

The MHRD and AICTE have asked the affiliated Universities and Institutions to constitute consultation committees and incorporate the revised curriculum at the earliest. Engineering students and aspirants must keep a close watch on the official website of AICTE to review the Revised Curriculum and understand what it entails for them.
