    FOREWORD

    The aim of any countrys higher education system is higher growth rate with sustainable economicdevelopment. It is achieved through creation, transmission and dissemination of knowledge. The AllIndia Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has been in existence since November 1945 as anational level Apex Advisory Body with its mission of developing and promoting quality technicaleducation in the country in a coordinated and integrated manner. The Councils constant endeavor isto encourage a meaningful association between the technical education system and research anddevelopment activities in a concerted effort aimed at nation-building.

    Technical education at all levels in the country is witnessing a consistent growth pattern marked bythe setting up of new Institutions and the improvement of the existing ones in tune with the qualityassurance norms set by the regulating and accreditation agencies. The Council believes in providing aproper impetus for the Institutions to generate competent Engineers, Pharmacists, Managers,Architects and Scientists and encourages them to think beyond the curriculum while impartingtraining for the advancement of knowledge.

    The Council has put in place several initiatives to bring about changes in the Approval Process byintroducing greater transparency and accountability through the e-governance. The emphasis this yearis to put in place simplified procedures and greater ease in the approval process. Access to QualityTechnical Education for All will be the motto for the year 2016-17 creating an academic ambiencein the technical institutes for nurturing and supporting quality so that technical education in India willbe one of the best in the world. Supporting institutes for accreditation of programs, ranking ofinstitutes, schemes such as Margdarshan, Adjunct Faculty, Trainee Teacher and Unnat BharatAbhiyan are a few of the important initiatives embarked upon by AICTE.

    This manual is an attempt to provide comprehensive information on the fair and rational system ofadministration as well as other necessary information on the processes and Institutions under the aegisof the AICTE. The emphasis on e-governance to ensure transparency, accountability, implementing atech-savvy approach to enable faster processing and clearly defining the infrastructural norms inInstitutions are just a few pointers towards AICTEs efforts at fostering a technical education systemwhich is on par with the best Institutions in the world.

    Swami Vivekananda said "Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man." Inkeeping with this objective, apart from regulatory role, AICTE would strive to be a true mentor,facilitator and enabler in bringing out the best in each institution. We hope this attempt of ours willprove endearing enough to all the stake holders.
