Updated on Wed, 12 March 2014 at 17:09 IST

Engineering students have something to cheer about now. Degree imparted by Indian universities will be now recognized globally. This is possible because India is set to get full-fledged membership status of the Washington Accord by June 2014. India is a provisional member of Washington Accord since 2007

"After acquiring full status of the Washington Accord, employability of Indian engineers in other countries will go up substantially. This will help our students pursuing technical education," Ashok Thakur (Secretary higher education ) told reporters.

Government has made accreditation mandatory for all educational institutes and UGC has come up with a set of guidelines in this respect.

Indian Institute of Technology (IITs) have so far refused to be accredited. And Ashok Thakur have left the matter upto IITs to decide whether they wish to be accredited.
