MBCET UG Courses receive NBA Accreditation | All the Five UG programmes of MBCET are accredited by NBA, New Delhi under TIER-II Category w.e.f. July 2016 !
Accreditation is the formal recognition of an educational institution or a degree program by an external independent authorized agency, based on well-defined and documented criteria and standards.
The National Board of Accreditation (NBA) is an autonomous body established by All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi for periodic evaluation of programmes offered by various technical institutions across our country. At present, as per Washington Accord, NBA has a two-tier system of accreditation for under graduate engineering programmes, namely TIER-I and TIER-II format.
The Tier–I format is applicable to the engineering and technology programmes offered by Academically Autonomous Institutions, University Departments and Constituent Colleges of the Universities. Tier-II format is applicable for the non-autonomous institutions which are affiliated to a university. In the TIER-I format of accreditation, more focus is on the criteria which are based on outcome based education. The Washington Accord is an International Agreement among bodies responsible for accrediting undergraduate engineering degree programs from various countries. The programmes accredited by these member bodies symbolises the substantial equivalency of programs. Also it recommends that the graduates of programs accredited by any of the signatory bodies be recognized by the other bodies,as having met the academic requirements for entry to the practice of engineering in the irrespective country. Thus the membership of Washington Accord is an international recognition of the quality of undergraduate engineering education offered by the member country and is an avenue to bring it into the world class category. National Board of Accreditation, India has become the permanent signatory member of the Washington Accord on 13th June 2014. The NBA accredited programmes under TIER-I format are eligible for the recognition of the programmes by other signatories of the Washington Accord. Therefore, it encourages and facilitates the mobility of engineering graduates and professionals at international level.
