From this year, only people with two years' work experience can join executive part time courses for management and engineering. Also, if colleges offer both part-time and full time courses, they cannot hold evening classes for their full time course batch.
The AICTE introduced these norms for part-time courses for working professionals on Tuesday 28th June. "Since earlier there were no norms to regulate part time courses, each college interpreted part-time courses in their own way. Now they will all follow the same rules," said S. S. Mantha, acting chairperson, AICTE. The new regulations also state that the credits earned in a part time course should equal to a full-time course. Even the faculty break-up for these courses has been outlined: 20% regular staff, 30% staff from the full time course and 50% visiting faculty. The intake capacity of part-time courses has to be hal of the full-time course strength "With no full-time courses running in the evenings, students in part-time courses will get an exclusive campus without needing to share any facilities such as library or AV room," said M. A. Khan, Director, Sydenham Institute of Management.
