ABET certificate for VIT

Feb 28, 2012

 February 22 is a red-letter day for VIT, because its Computer Science and Electronics and Communication Engineering departments’ performance was lauded in the form of ABET (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) certificate.

 

Jennifer McIntyre, US Consul General, Chennai, graced the occasion, handing over the certificate to the VIT University. The new initiatives in higher education between United States and India will help identify multiple paths to educational excellence over the next decade, McIntyre said.

 

After handing over ABET certificate to VIT University, Vellore, at a function here on Wednesday, McIntyre said promoting research and scholarship in education was the hallmark of US–India partnership.

 

The two governments have been partnering each other for more than 60 years in the Fulbright programme administered by USIEF and since 2008, through the Fulbright-Nehru scholarships which provide the participants the opportunity to study, teach, conduct research, exchange ideas and contribute to finding solutions to shared international concerns. Today, India has the largest Fulbright scholar exchange programme in the world with more than 17,000 fellowships and other grants awarded to Indians and Americans since it began.

 

USIEF office also oversaw the new Obama–Singh initiative, a $10 million dollar programme co-funded equally by both governments.

 

In his speech, G Viswanathan, Chancellor, VIT University, said the university had already obtained ABET accreditation for Civil and Mechanical Engineering disciplines in 2009. “The division of universities should be based on quality and accreditation and not on Centre, State or private universities,” he said. He called for opening up more universities as access to higher education was still below 15 per cent in the country.
