Tripura institute to start three MTech courses

AGARTALA, June 27 (PTI): Tripura Institute of Technology (TIT) has received approval from the All Indian Council of Technical Education (AICTE) for starting MTech programmes in three courses from the current session, state education minister Ratan Lal Nath said on Friday.

The courses include Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) and Embedded System, Thermal Engineering and Data Science. "Soon after a change in government in 2018, the target of the education department was to start MTech courses in the state," Nath said.

MTech courses in different disciplines are taught in the National Institute of Technology (NIT), Tripura. The institute was converted from Tripura Engineering College, a state engineering college, to a National Institute of Technology in 2006. "Earlier, the students had to travel to other states to get their MTech degree but now at least 54 students will be benefitted," Nath said.
