The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has prepared a model curriculum in line with the new National Education Policy 2020 (NEP) and it will be launched “soon”, a senior official said on Wednesday.
The AICTE had introduced the first version of the model curriculum in 2017, before preparing the NEP-2020, AICTE President Anil Sahasrabudhe said during a panel discussion at the International Conference of Academic Institutions.
“Modern curriculum comes into effect from time to time. The first version of the model curriculum was already implemented in 2017. We are now four years later and the curriculum has been revised again. You will have the next model curriculum soon, maybe also in the next two weeks,” said Sahasrabudhe when asked about the release of the curriculum in accordance with the NEP 2020.
“All the ingredients of the NEP are in it (model curriculum). I am sure that universities of technology will start following it,” he added.
Sahasrabudhe participated in a panel discussion on “Multidisciplinary and Holistic Education”. The two-day conference, focused on the implementation of NEP, was inaugurated on Wednesday in Science City.
“This is still called a model curriculum. Since it comes from a regulatory body, people assume it is mandatory. However, each university is autonomous. They can make changes to the curriculum because what we have prepared is a suggestive model,” said the academic.
