Students will now be able to study engineering at Ahmedabad University (AU) and Navrachna University, Vadodara, as the All India Committee for Technical Education (AICTE) has granted them permission to start undergraduate courses in engineering. Apart from the two universities, three colleges in the state have also got permission to start undergraduate courses in engineering. They are Pacific College of Engineering in Surat; SAL Engineering College in Ahmedabad; and Swaminarayan College of Engineering in Kalol.
All the three colleges have got permission to start an engineering course with 300 seats each. As per the information provided by the Admission Committee for Professional Courses (ACPC), AU has got permission to start undergraduate engineering courses with 60 seats. Navrachna University has received permission to start the courses with 180 seats. AU intends to start an engineering batch on its campus opposite Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, (IIMA). It is learnt that AU has already recruited seven professors of different engineering branches to start the course. But this could not be confirmed as AU registrar, B.M. Shah, could not be contacted on phone. Member-secretary of ACPC, M.N. Patel, said that the two universities and the three colleges had received permission only on Thursday, 5th July, 2012. “That is why we could not include the increased seats during the first round of admissions which ended on Thursday, 5th July, 2012. We will include the newly-approved seats - around 1140 in all - during the second round of admissions,” Patel said. In the first round, the total number of engineering seats available for admissions was 53,324.
