AICTE Focuses on Introduction of New Age Courses such as AI, ML
In a tweet sent out by AICTE (@AICTE_INDIA) the Association has clearly stated that they would like to now focus on New Age coursework to be introduced in Undergraduate Curriculum. The set of New Age coursework that is being considered as per tweet include #Artificialintelligence, #datascience, #IoT, # machinelearning, #blockchain, #robotics, #quantumcomputing, #virtualreality, #augmentedreality, #3dprinting and so on. These are called Emerging Areas and will be new flavours to be added to under graduate curriculum.
Clearly the objective is to enhance skill base and increase fitment into emerging job opportunities. With the last year’s drastic fall in admissions, with close to 50% of UG Engg and technology seats lying vacant, AICTE is pushing for steps to increase industry appeal of the grauating batches in terms of leading edge skills.
