The beginning of formal Technical Education in India can be dated back to the mid 19th century. Themajor policy initiatives in the pre-independence period included appointment of the IndianUniversities Commission in 1902, issue of the Indian Education policy resolution in 1904 and the
Governor General‟s policy statement of 1913 stressing the importance of Technical Education, the
establishment of II Sc. in Bangalore, Institution for Sugar, Textile and Leather Technology in Kanpur,N.C.E. in Bengal in 1905 and Industrial schools in several provinces. Significant developmentsinclude:Constitution of the Technical Education Committee of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) of 1943;Preparation of the Sergeant Report of 1944; andFormation of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in 1945 by theGovernment of India.The AICTE was set up in November 1945 based on the recommendations of CABE to stimulate,coordinate and control the provisions of educational facilities and industrial development of the postwar period. At that time, mandate of AICTE basically covered only programs in Engineering andTechnology.The growth of industries in the Country, just after independence, also demanded the need for qualifiedprofessionals in other fields, such as Business Management, Architecture, Hotel Management,Pharmacy etc. Although the diverse elements of Management such as Commerce, Economics,Finance, Psychology and Industrial Sociology were being taught for a long time, the need forManagement Education in a formal way was felt in India only in the fifties.

r better coordination of the ProfessionalCourses, Architecture Education was also placed under the purview of AICTE.
