From now, engineering students to study big data, IoT

BIG Data

Big data and Internet of Things (IoT) is more than just a buzzword; implementing it correctly can benefit your business and bottom line. Seeing the importance of newly-emerging concepts, the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has revised the curriculum for the four year undergraduate program.

From now on, first year engineering students will study artificial intelligence, big data, IoT and robotics and undergo mandatory induction program and internships from academic year 2018-19. There are more than 14.76 lakh students study in 3,224 engineering colleges in the country, as per AICTE figures including IITs, NITs, IIITs and BITS.

Officials said that the revised curriculum comes seven years after it was last updated by AICTE to make engineering graduates more employable. The revised curriculum released will be adapted by all affiliated engineering colleges across the country from next academic year. A committee constituted by the ministry of human resource development and the AICTE has recommended a model curriculum which was released. The model curriculum was prepared by keeping in view the latest industry trends and market requirements in all major engineering subjects.
