DR MP Poonia, vice chariman, AICTE said that the new syllabus will be industry linked and therefore it will be mandatory for the students to spend two months per year in the industry.
"The AICTE is tying up with CII and Ministry of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises to give industrial exposure to the students," Poonia stated.
The AICTE is also planning on training the teachers and for this purpose programs have already been designed and for this purpose The Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE) has been contacted for this purpose which will provide three month training to the teachers after MTech.
