MANUU BTech course gets AICTE nod
AICTE Recognizes MANUU’s B.Tech Programme. The B.Tech programme started by the School of Computer Science & Information Technology of Maulana Azad...
According to Prof. Abdul Wahid, Dean School of Computer Science & Information Technology, the AICTE has sent a notification dated April 30, informing him about the approval. It also said that the facilities at the CS & IT School have been found according to the required standards of AICTE. The notification said that a team from AICTE visited the School of CS & IT twice—once on March 18 and the other on April 20—and found the buildings, laboratories and equipments etc. suitable for Engineering courses.
Since MANUU, as a Central University has the necessary authority to start the B.Tech programme, it did so in 2013. At the same time, to instill more confidence among the students about the course, the University sought approval from the AICTE which was communicated through the notification.
The School of CS & IT will be starting M.Tech programme in the 2015-2016 academic year while it has already started Ph.D. programme and registered four students. MCA program was started in the School in 2012.
Though the School of CS & IT is in a nascent stage, it is expected to grow on a faster pace with the unstinted support being provided by the University authorities. The first batch of B.Tech from MANUU will graduate in 2017,” Prof. Abdul Wahid said.
In the meantime, the AICTE has also extended its approval to the Polytechnic courses in Hyderabad. The principal of Polytechnic Dr Yousuf Khan has been informed about the extension of the approval by the AICTE.
