Is AICTE degree valid abroad?
Yes! Candidates with AICTE degrees are eligible for jobs both in India and abroad. Plus, the degree also qualifies one for a PG degree anywhere in India or abroad. This is because AICTE is the supreme regulatory authority in India for technical education.
What if my degree is not AICTE approved?
If the candidate’s degree is not approved by AICTE, then the institution the candidate is joining must be UGC-approved - even if it is not approved by AICTE.
Is UGC better than AICTE?
All Engineering, MBA, and Pharmacy colleges in India are affiliated with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Technical institutions are overlooked by the AICTE, while all the other universities and colleges fall under the UGC. Thus, both of them have their own value and none is better than the other. Plus, a single higher education body is all set to replace AICTE & UGC. To know more about that, please visit exam.buddy4study.com/heci.
