You must have heard of the new AICTE norms regarding the eligibility of teachers,that have come in force.It says the teachers who possess MSc degrees are unfit for teaching any Btech course even if they possess Mtech or PhD degrees. IN order to obtain the degree we qualify an all india level enterance, go through a strong curriculum, pass with good score and when compared to those who are obtaining degree from the education shops opened every where in the country by the names of xyz engineering colleges we donot even have the right to compete with them.
The criteria for a teacher to teach a particular curriculum should be based on the papers the person has studied in the qualifying exam and not the name of the degree.A large number of Msc holders are teaching in IITs and other premier engineering colleges in the departments other than applied physics.Have they been doing injustice to their Btech students? It is astonishing that a person who is Btech in biotechnology is teaching Btech electronics but an Msc electronics from reputed university of india is rendered ineligible.
AICTE cannot make norms for a particular group of technical people but it has do justice for the entire technical community in india which includes a huge number of MSc elctronics and other MScs even.They should not descriminate the citizens of the country in the name of the degree they possess.Whether UGC aproved or AICTE aproved the degree is for the people of this country and should be used for serving the students of this country in an efficient manner, not waisting it by restricting it to the applied physics department. We belong to the electronics department and have the right to be there.
