MHRD likely to rope in MIT for reforming NITs

Reportedly, the MHRD has approved the matter and will soon ask MIT to depute a team of experts in engineering discipline to visit a few NITs including Srinagar, Jaipur, Agartala among others.

The idea is to examine their current academic standards and suggest improvements in various fields including the curriculum being used with reference to the global practices and suggest changes accordingly.

The HRD minister Smriti Irani wants to revamp the institutes and a formal proposal will be sent to MIT.

One of the major tasks of the team that will visit the institutes from MIT will be to verify the critical understanding of engineering concepts by students in the final year of under-graduation and their ability to use the concepts in real life situations, reported HT.
