  2. What is OBE and Accreditation Outcome-based education (OBE) is education in which an emphasis is placed on a clearly articulated idea of what students are expected to know and be able to do, in terms of skills, application of knowledge and attitude they need to have, when they complete their graduation. Accreditation is a process of quality assurance and improvement, whereby a program in an approved Institution is critically appraised to verify that the Institution or the program continues to meet and/or exceed the Norms and Standards prescribed by the regulator from time to time. It is a kind of recognition which indicates that a program or Institution fulfills certain standards.

  3. Why Accreditation The purpose of the accreditation by NBA is to promote and recognize excellence in technical education in colleges and universities - at both the undergraduate and post graduate levels. Institutions, students, employers, and the public at large all benefit from the external verification of quality provided through the NBA accreditation process. They also benefit from the process of continuous quality improvement that is encouraged by the NBA's developmental approach to promote excellence in technical education. Continuous improvement should become a philosophy, DNA of the institute

  4. Accreditation Serves to Support and advice the technical institutions in the maintenance and enhancement of their quality; Build confidence and assurance on quality to various stakeholders including students; Assurance of the good standing of an Institution to government departments and other interested bodies; NBA (INDIA) being a signatory to Washington Accord which has 23 permanent signatories today, the degrees awarded to students in the approved programs are considered equivalent to the programs in the signatory countries.
