Kaushal Augmentation and Restructuring Mission of AICTE (KARMA)
AICTE is initiating “Kaushal Augmentation and Restructuring Mission of AICTE” (KARMA) for all AICTE approved institutions in the country to overcome the dual challenge of scarcity of skilled manpower in jobs and low skill level of those who are presently in jobs.
Objectives of KARMA
The scheme aims at:
|Strategically planned skill initiatives to create skilled and certified workforce, who not only contribute towards the growth of India but also drive the country into becoming the global skills capital.
|Encourage the institutions for making the best use of available infrastructure of higher education system during off hours for skill training by re-aligning the existing infrastructure for the skill courses specially, training AIDS, syllabus, curriculum etc. as per NSQF aligned Qualifications.
|This scheme is applicable to the candidate who have passed at least10th standard/ ITIs
|The training under the Scheme shall be, any domain-specific demand-led skill training activity preferably in core engineering sectors leading to employment.
Three Skilling Models Under Karma:
AICTE has proposed three Models for Skilling of In-school students/ school dropouts, students perusing Technical Education:
|Model 1:Targeting School Dropouts after class 10th pass (long back and recent).
|Model 2: Targeting Advance level Skilling of students already studying in AICTE approved Technical institutions. A program for the Skill up-gradation of present technical students will be introduced for making them industry-ready where advance skilling courses will be offered during 4th - 7th semester for making them industry ready. Assessment and other criteria’s will be similar to KARMA.
|Model 3: Integrating School Education with Higher Education for skilling students. Education needs to shift from corrective to connective, transactional to relational. Henceforth, to establish a connect between HEIs and schools, AICTE is suggesting its institutions to start once a week Skill based training for the nearby school students in a “Hub and Spoke” Model.
The Mohamed Sathak A J College of Engineering was approved by AICTE to conduct 5 courses in model 2 with an approved intake of in : 1) AI -Machine learning Developer, 2) Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Technician, 3) Additive Manufacturing Technician (3D Printing), 4) Certificate Course in Embedded System Design using ARM/ Cortex Microcontroller and 5) Architectural Drafting and Basic 3D Design with Autodesk Revit (MES).
In Model 1 the Institute was approved by AICTE to conduct 2 courses with an approved intake of 30 students namely : 1) Computer Hardware Network Maintenance and 2) Refrigeration And Air Conditioning Technician with 30 students intake.
