In the year 1994, the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) established the National Board of Accreditation. It was established to evaluate the competence of technical educational institutions in terms of quality teaching, pedagogical methodologies, curriculum development, infrastructure, etc. It assesses educational institutions that are approved by AICTE. They follow certain criteria to analyze the quality. The National Board of Accreditation (NBA) has implemented various procedures, guidelines, and standards for certification that comply with the best global practices.
NBA evaluates and accredits the technical education programs to monitor the quality of the educational institutions. They make time to time changes in the parameters that are involved in the assessment process to upscale its quality. One of the primary objectives of the NBA is to create a system of technical education that will serve as a human resource facilitator and align with the national objectives of growth and contribute to economic development through competitiveness.
The institutions that are accredited by NBA can attain an autonomous status. Their assessment would encourage institutions to foster a better learning environment that accelerates the growth of students as well as teachers. It also builds an ecosystem for the students to develop their skills and makes them employable.
NBA strives to improve the quality of education that is being imparted to students in technical institutions by improving the quality of these intuitions in most aspects. By improving the quality of teaching and learning, they are trying to build a community of students who are competent enough to bring about a positive change in the society we live in.
