National Board of Accreditation

The AICTE established the National Board of Accreditation or NBA to gauge the standard of educational programs offered by institutions, from diploma to post-graduate levels. It’s different from other accreditation bodies in India because it accredits courses or programs instead of institutes. NBA accredits technical programs like engineering & technology, pharmacy, management, architecture, and other courses approved by AICTE.

In 2010, NBA was introduced as an autonomous body to assess and assure the standard, credibility, Admission Management, and relevancy of professional education courses through a meticulous accreditation process. It includes several criteria and parameters that align with international practices and target the outcomes of educational programs.

Undoubtedly, being certified is an honour for NBA-accredited colleges. It’s a badge that adds credit to an engineering program and sends a message that experts have reviewed and approved it. Also, it assures students that the course meets premier quality standards.
