NEW DELHI: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) wants to close down about 800 engineering colleges across India as admissions in colleges have dropped down over last few years.

AICTE chairman Anil Dattatraya Sahasrabudhe told TOI, “There are approximately 150 colleges which are closed down voluntarily every year due to stricter AICTE rules.”

“One of the AICTE rules states that if a college lacks proper infrastructure and reports less than 30 per cent admissions for five consecutive years, it will be closed down,” he said.

 

AICTE is also looking at making engineering students industry-ready so that they are hired on time. From this year onwards, every second and third-year student will have to undergo internship compulsorily so that they are hired even before campus placements.

In the academic year 2014-15, 77 institutions closed down; in 2015-16, 125 were shut down; in 2016-17, 149 were shut down and in 2017-18, a total of 65 engineering institutions will be shut down.
