The West Bengal government is working on strategies for continuous upgradation of the education infrastructure making different courses job-intensive, while planning to set up a monitoring team to oversee private educational institutes and universities.
“Education must be job-intensive and there should be continuous upgradation of infrastructure. Standard of education should never be compromised,” state higher education minister Partha Chatterjee today said.
Chatterjee was inaugurating the ‘Education Exhibition – 2016’ organised by Association of Professional Academic Institutions (APAI) here as part of the pre-counselling for e-admission of engineering students.
He said the state government was planning to set up a monitoring team to oversee private educational institutes and universities and the standard of education in the state would never be compromised.
Speaking on the functioning of different private engineering and technical institutes, the minister urged the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) to keep a tab on such institutes to ensure their norms were not flouted.
Engineering and technical institutes should organise interfaces with industries to ensure their students get employment opportunities immediately after completion of their courses, he said.
