All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) Chairman Anil D Sahasrabudhe said on Friday. “There is a need to bring students into startup culture and to provide them a platform where they can convert their bright ideas into innovation,” he said here. “We should create a support system for students, including more internship or skill programme, to hone their skills,” he added.
The lack of resources and unemployment are the major challenges, Sahasrabudhe said, adding that we should focus on startups. The AICTE has made its own startup policy through which universities and colleges along with their normal courses will start entrepreneurship courses, he said. He said that lab and research centres should be opened for 24 hours for students so that they can do research and draw their ideas.
