Dr S S Bhatnagar University Institute of Chemical Engineering and Technology, Punjab University will continue running the 5-year BE [Chemical] MBA integrated course for the session 2018-19. Even though the University is making efforts to get AICTE and UGC’s approval for the course, the course will be involved in the admission prospectus for the session of 2018-19. Following media reports, the Punjab University can continue to run the course without the approval of the AICTE and UGC since it is an autonomous Institution. However, in a meeting, the University declared that even though it can run the course without approval, it will still make attempts in getting the approval as the similar will assist in enhancing the market value of the course.
In a syndicate meeting conducted previous month, the University accepted the request of candidates which stated that the period of BE [Chemical] MBA integrated course must be decreased from five-and-a-half years to five years. The request was made for the future as well as for the ongoing session. Previously in March, a committee constituted by Punjab University decided that the course duration must be decreased to five years. The committee took the decision keeping in mind that the course as no longer involved in the AICTE approved course list. However, it was ensured that even though the duration of the course will be decreased, no compromise shall be made with the syllabus.
Adding to this, the committee decided that if approval from a governing body like the UGC could be obtained, the department might continue running the course. Furthermore, the committee made a recommendation in which it stated that any revenue loss due to the closure of the course could be compensated by enhancing the fee structure of other classes. In an attempt to search approval for running the course, the University had written to the UGC on 13th July last year. Since the department didn’t receive any communication, the committee has requested to send an urgent reminder to the UGC regarding the issue.
