AICTE: 3 Private Universities to Shut Down Engineering & Management Colleges in Punjab

The demand for engineering courses has been declining gradually year after year. Lakhs of engineering seats remain unfilled in various states across the country due to a conflict that exists because of more number of engineering colleges as against the number of engineering course takers. In the latest development, AICTE has ordered three private universities to shut down their engineering and management colleges as they have failed to admit the required number of students. Students already enrolled can, however, complete their degree course. Further, they will not be able to admit any student for the academic session of 2017-18.
