All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE)
As per law, Universities do not require AICTE approval. Only institutions which are affiliated to Universities require approval. As AU is a Bonafide University established by a State Act, it does not require AICTE approval. This standing of law is notified in the case of Bharathidasan University Vs AICTE. Also check section (iv) of public notice of AICTE which clearly states that University does not require prior approval from AICTE to commence a new department or course and programmes in technical education.
