New Delhi: The GMR Institute of Technology (GMRIT) at Rajam, Srikakulam district in Andhra Pradesh has become the first institute in the state to receive accreditation from the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) under tier-1 category for its six B Tech programs. Among these, three programs – Mechanical, Chemical and Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) programs– are accredited for five years, while three others – Civil, Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), and Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE) programs – are accredited for two years.Commenting on the achievement, Dr. C.L.V.R.S.V. Prasad, Principal, GMRIT, said: “GMRIT is the only institute in Andhra Pradesh to get accreditation for five year duration under tier-1 for three of its programs. NBA has offered 5-year accreditation to only 17 programs in the country of which, three are from GMRIT, which is indeed a unique credential of GMRIT.
