Udaipur based Mohanlal Sukhadia University will now also offer Engineering and other Technical courses in its bouquet of academic offerings.
The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has accorded approval to the Mohanlal Sukhadia University to offer degree courses in Engineering and other technical areas.
Terming it a pride and achievement for the University, Vice Chancellor Prof. Amrika Singh, in his note to the media said that the Academic Council and Board of Management at MLSU had already approved inclusion of Engineering and Technology courses. The approval from AICTE has paved the way for an immediate start to these courses.
Prof. Singh further informed that the name of the institute offering these courses will be Institute of Engineering and Technology, Mohanlal Sukhadia University (IET, MLSU), Udaipur, which will be an independant body.
With MLSU getting this approval, the credit for beginning IETs in Rajasthan will go to MLSU. Students will be able to get admission into various Engineering and Technology courses in MLSU in both the urban and rural areas and this will also benefit the tribal belt to a great extent, generating employment opportunities in the future. All these IETs will be financially sefl sufficient.
VC Prof. Amrika Singh has sent a copy of the approval to the Governor of Rajasthan (who is the Chancellor of MLSU) and to the state government. Many new courses are expected to be added with the opening of the IETs.
Udaipur Times will update its readers on the other developments related to IET as and when we are informed.
