Engineering colleges across the country may go the NEET way. The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), which governs engineering colleges, is contemplating making JEE-Main the single entrance test for undergraduate BE courses.
At present, the Central Board of Secondary Education conducts JEE-Main for admissions to the premier IITs, National Institutes of Technology, Indian Institute of Information Technology and other centrally funded institutes.
AICTE chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe told TOI on Tuesday some states are currently using JEE-Main as the entrance test to fill engineering seats in state colleges. “We are planning to make JEE-Main the single entrance test in the country. JEE-Main is based on the CBSE syllabus and different states are following different syllabi; so having a single entrance test for engineering is still in the planning stage.”
Like medical admissions, students end up writing multiple entrance tests for engineering courses too. Students in Karnataka write at least four entrance tests – CET, ComedK, JEE and entrance to various deemed universities.
Sahasrabudhe said AICTE panel will visit engineering colleges with a lack of infrastructure, low student strength, lack of faculty and equipment. If flaws are found, such colleges will be shut down.
