Karnataka Polytechnic Colleges to be Upgraded

Polytechnic colleges in Karnataka will be upgraded with modern equipment and the latest software, according to Dr CN Aswhathnarayan, Minister of Education. The initiative taken under the Modernisation and Removal of Obsolescence (MODROB) programme of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is aimed at developing critical thinking and problem-solving abilities among students. This is also aimed at reducing the skill gaps of students as they enter the workforce. It also supports new innovations to ensure that the practical work and project work to be carried out by students is contemporary and suited to the needs of the industry. The initiative will help modernize and remove obsolescence in the laboratories, workshops, computing facilities to enhance the functional efficiency of technical Institutions for teaching, training and research.
