New Delhi: Working professionals will soon have the opportunity to study Bachelor of Technology (B Tech) and Bachelor of Engineering (BE) degree courses.

The All-India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has invited applications from affiliated technical institutions interested in running the programmes.

The courses will be offered in regular mode but will be designed as per the convenience of the candidates, with flexible timings and models, including the evening course.

The schedule and the syllabus too will be flexible.

Each institute can conduct a maximum of three programmes, with an approved intake of 30 seats each. A minimum of 10 working professionals should be there to start the course, officials said.

The new system is expected to benefit those professionals who could not earn an engineering degree due to reasons like financial issues, but are still looking for opportunities to earn one. Professionals can apply for the courses if the institutions where they are working approve the same.
