All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) together with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has recently started a survey to select technical institutions for different awards. The best technical institutions on the basis of the survey will be awarded 18 different categories.
The survey will study the industry-academia relationship implemented in the technical institutions. It aims to highlight the importance of linkage between industries and education as it helps in increasing employablility of students.
The AICTE recently made it compulsory for all engineering students to undergo internships to up employability levels.
