The National Institutes of Technology (NIT) Council organised a meeting on May 25 in order to discuss the recommendations of the V K Saraswat committee set up by the HRD Ministry to suggest changes to the NIT curricula. It was suggested that various flagship programmes of the Modi government such as Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Smart Cities, Jan Dhan, Make in India, Digital India etc could soon be introduced in the engineering curriculum of the institute. As per an Indian Express report,  the suggestions of this panel, which the council decided to adopt, include introduction of a new course on the national flagship programmes for all engineering disciplines.

Why is the change being made?

“The objective of the course should be to make students ready to contribute to the nation-building programme. The course should cover engineering aspects involved in national flagship schemes to ensure that students are aware of the engineering aspects related to those,” states the Saraswat committee report, which was accessed by The Sunday Express.

Recommendations by the panel

  • Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, a sanitation and cleanliness campaign and Skill India, which aims to provide industry-relevant skill training to youths, should be taught to all the students of NIT
  • All the students should know about Make in India, which was rolled out to make India the world’s manufacturing hub
  • Undergraduates pursuing a degree in information technology or electronics should be aware of the engineering component in the Digital India initiative
  • Students of civil engineering will be expected to study the Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation, which focuses on providing basic civic amenities to improve the quality of life in cities
  • A new course named ‘Sustainable Engineering’ must be introduced in all the branches.  –  Courtesy
