In a letter to Vice Chancellors of all Technical Universities and Directors/ Principals of all approved Institutions, the AICTE said, “At each entry, Institution/University has to identify the educational gaps/skill gaps and suitable bridge course may be offered.”

Similarly, to make the students employable after every exit, the skill component with progressive enhancement in skill in respective disciplines may be introduced in the curriculum right from the first year of the program by the concerned regulatory body/University/Technical Board, as the case may be.
