Changes to be made in NIT Curricula: Narendra Modi Govt. programmes to feature in NIT curriculum

NIT Council has organised a meeting to discuss about the recommendations of V K Saraswat committee which suggest the changes to be made in NIT Curricula. It was suggested that various flagship programmes of the Modi government could soon be introduced in the engineering curriculum of the institute.

The NIT Council has organised the meeting on 25th May 2017 which was set up by the Human Resource Development Ministry to discuss about the recommendations of V K Saraswat committee which suggest the changes to be made in NIT Curricula. It was suggested that various flagship programmes of the Modi government such as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Smart Cities, Jan Dhan, Make in India, Digital India etc could soon be introduced in the engineering curriculum of the institute.

The Saraswat committee report states that the objective of the course should be to make students ready to contribute to the nation-building programme. The course should cover engineering aspects involved in national flagship schemes to ensure that students are aware of the engineering aspects related to those.

Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a sanitation and cleanliness campaign and Skill India, which aims to provide industry-relevant skill training to youths, should be taught to all the students of NIT.

All the students should know about Make in India, which was rolled out to make India the world's manufacturing hub.

Undergraduates pursuing a degree in information technology or electronics should be aware of the engineering component in the Digital India initiative.

Students of civil engineering will be expected to study the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation, which focuses on providing basic civic amenities to improve the quality of life in cities.

A new course named 'Sustainable Engineering' must be introduced in all the branches.
