In what would come as a major shock for the parents and the aspiring students is that 90% of the Tamilnadu Engineering college courses do not have AICTE Accreditation. Out of 650 engineering colleges in Tamilnadu, 540 are affiliated to Anna University.
The National Board of Accreditation(NBA) which approves the courses grades the Engineering courses based on various parameters and it is imperative for the college t ensure that all these parameters are met. At the present moment there are only 220 disciplines which is accredited by the NBA.
Students are herewith advised to ensure that the courses are approved by AICTE and accredited by NBA prior to joining.
