AICTE signs MOU with CSTT to define technical, scientific terms in Hindi and other Indian languages

The All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) and the Commission for Scientific and Technical Terminology (CSTT) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to define scientific and technical terms in Hindi and other Indian languages.

The MOU aligns with AICTE’s goal of expanding engineering and technical education in Indian languages. The regulatory body has already translated 218 technical books into 11 Indian languages ​​and its latest effort with CSTT aims to standardize technical terminology in Indian languages ​​and spread its use widely by partnering with state governments, universities, Indian textbook boards and State Granth Academies.

As part of the MOU, both AICTE and CSTT will work to develop and define scientific and technical terms in Hindi and other modern Indian languages ​​for the purpose of the teaching process, content creation as textbooks, Faculty Development Program (FDP) , skills and vocational education, promotion of the Indian knowledge system in Hindi and Indian languages, and technology localization.

Commenting on the MOU, AICTE President Prof. Anil D. Sahasrabudhe said: “I am pleased to announce that the AICTE has signed an MOU with CSTT to define scientific and technical terms in Hindi and other Indian languages. This benefits millions of Indian students who wish to study engineering in their Indian language. Together with CSTT, AICTE will ensure that the defined technical terms become part of textbooks prepared for technical education in various Indian languages. We believe this is a step towards inclusiveness and will inspire many students in remote areas to take technical education in their Indian language.”

AICTE will support the CSTT in creating terminology through the application of technology and will provide faculty training for the teaching and learning of Indian languages. The CSTT will provide scientific and technical terminology for the various topics included in the syllabus of the programs conducted by AICTE in Hindi and other Indian languages. CSTT will also provide terminology training through workshops and seminars to facilitate the staff/teachers of the AICTE and its various departments/lectures.
