Keeping the problem and situation in mind, AICTE has introduced Bachelor of Technology (BTech) and Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degrees for working professionals to continue their higher education. If you seek additional insight into the course, check out three BTech and BE apps that can help you make your studies easier.

AICTE approved a maximum of three programmes per institute with 30 seats each. The report mentioned that the course and schedule will be designed based on students and it will allow flexible timings as well. “This is a continuous education programme for in-service persons for their professional upgradation. We are aiming to start at least one to four institutions in each district,” Kumar added.

The institutes can also decide the mode of studies, online or offline and the schedule and timetable will be developed accordingly.
