Govt to give accreditation to 1,000 programmes at Indian institutions. Under ‘Washington Accord’, this will improve graduates’ chances of foreign placement.
India’s engineering graduates are set to become more employable around the world, with the government agreeing to give globally-accepted accreditation to over 1,000 programmes across institutions in the country.
This accreditation will be given by the National Bureau of Accreditation (NBA), a body under the ministry of human resource development, which is part of the ‘Washington Accord’ signed by India in 2014. The accord makes it easier for graduates to get jobs abroad.
