Students aspiring to study management course (MBA) after completing engineering (B.E./B.Tech) have welcomed the All-India Council for Technical Education’s (AICTE’s) new initiative in starting a five-and-a-half years integrated engineering-management course this year. According to an AICTE official, the main objective of the course is to create technologists and engineers from all branches ready with management skills, ensure that the graduating students are ‘industry-ready’ with managerial skills and inspire students to start and run their own ventures in their basic field of study with good business skills and knowledge.
The 5.5 years course includes 10 semesters of curriculum followed by one semester (6 months) of industry internship for engineering students. N. Deepu, a final-year electrical engineering student who aspires to do MBA, welcomed AICTE’s initiative and said regulatory councils like AICTE should come up with different courses like the integrated management course. “Instead of studying engineering for four years and management for two years in two different institutions, the integrated programme will help students pursue them in the same institution with nominal fees,” he said. Sadhana, another student, said this course would help do away with the problem of two entrance examinations as a student could take up one examination to join the course. “Even if a student drops out of the course in four years, he has an opportunity to get an engineering degree,” she said. C. Vimalraj, a third-year electronics and communication engineering student, pointed out that if patronage for the course increases, it would minimise the crowd for common admission test (CAT) to get admitted to a management course.
