Sir Sai University gets AICTE approval to run undergraduate engineering courses


Sir Sai University Palampur claimed to get an approval from the AICTE to run undergraduate engineering courses for the current academic session. Sir Sai University Vice-Chancellor Dr Bal Ram Dogra said a team of experts visited the university last month and based on their feedback AICTE gave their approval.

Dr Dogra said the university had launched research-based courses in many subjects. It had been regularly publishing many research papers. It had also started an advance programme in yoga and naturopathy.

Sir Sai University Vice-Chancellor also raises question over Regulatory Commission and said that government-run universities should also be brought under its ambit. He alleged that at present over 50 per cent teaching staff posts were vacant in many government universities.
