AICTE Signs MOU with Monster India
The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is the statutory body and a national-level council for technical education, under Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Human Resource Development.
Established in November 1945 first as an advisory body and later on in 1987 given statutory status by an Act of Parliament, AICTE is responsible for proper planning and coordinated development of the technical education and management education system in India. The AICTE accredits postgraduate and graduate programs under specific categories at Indian institutions as per its charter.
The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Monster India, to aid in providing job opportunities to students and first time job seekers.
This alliance with Monster India will act as an interface between students, colleges and recruiters by empowering institutions approved with AICTE, to map their students’ talent and provide them with relevant job opportunities, according to a release.
In this partnership, Monster India will manage and monitor campus recruitment activities of over 10,360 colleges approved by AICTE with a collective intake capacity of over 36 lakh students. This comprises of students from various streams- engineering and technology; applied arts and craft; hotel management and catering; management; pharmacy and architecture and town planning.
Monster India apart from creating and managing the platform will also provide facility for practice tests to check employability, identify skill gaps through assessment and suggest proactive measures to overcome it. The practice tests include two aspects- general aptitude and core subject related. These tests are currently available for engineering streams and will be soon added for other streams as well.
“Such MoU will definitely help college students and fresher candidates seeking career opportunities. The young population is going to set the stage for a bright India tomorrow,” said Anil D Sahasrabudhe, Chairman, AICTE.
