About Convention

Number of technical Institutions established across the country is offering UG and PG programs in Engineering, Pharmacy and Management etc. The access, inclusion and quality are the three important issues to be considered in the Technical Education by the policy makers. The first two issues are already largely addressed and the third issue i.e., the quality is on the top agenda of this convention. For the past couple of years, it has become very difficult for some institutions in few states like A.P. to survive as more than 50% of the seats are unfilled. This convention is aimed at bringing all the eminent personalities in the technical field, on one platform, to share their views and experiences to find the solutions for the challenges faced by the technical education in india. The main focus of this convention is on strengthening the Technical Education with quality besides upgrading and utilizing the existing infrastructure.
