B Tech programmes in CSE, ME are accredited for the Academic years 2019-20, 2020-21 and 2021-22. EE Departments accredited for the Academic Years 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

NBA aligned its methodology with international benchmarks and started accreditation on the basis of outcomes. It believes that educational quality must be measured by outcomes rather than inputs, because inputs do not necessarily correlate with quality outcomes. Outcomes are dependent not only on inputs but also on the processes followed by an institution to convert inputs into defined outcomes.
Research and Collaborations
Students must develop not only the component skills (i.e., fundamental skills) and knowledge necessary to perform complex tasks, they must also practice combining and integrating them to develop greater fluency and automaticity.
