Now Engineering Courses in Hindi and 7 Other Languages ​​| India News


NEW DELHI: All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has enabled universities to offer engineering degrees in up to eight regional Indian languages, including Marathi, starting in the new academic year (2020-21). The other languages ​​in which it would be available are Hindi, Bengali, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, Kannada, and Malayalam.
The move would help hopefuls, particularly from rural and tribal areas, make their dreams come true. To date, many bright students used to stay away from these courses for fear of English. Many advanced countries such as Germany, France, Russia, Japan, and China provide comprehensive education in their official languages.
“The aim is to impart technical education to students in their mother tongue so that they can understand the fundamentals in a much better way,” said AICTE President Anil Sahastrabuddhe. “We have received around 500 applications from all over the country. We plan to offer UG engineering courses in 11 more languages ​​in the future. AICTE is offering course material in all of these languages ​​and also translating courses taught on Swayam and Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) portals, ”he said. YOU.
