July 19, 2022
Dr CN Ashwath Narayan, Karnataka’s Minister for Higher Education, announced that a total of 30 engineering colleges in the state, including 14 government colleges, have been selected for RETE (Regional Ecosystem For Technical Excellence- Pronounced as REETI) with the objective of upgrading 30 engineering colleges across the state as technical colleges of global standard in five years.
Speaking after receiving the report submitted by a High-Power Committee headed by Professor Karisiddappa, Vice-Chancellor, VTU, at Vikasa Soudha, he said on Tuesday that this will enable providing qualitative engineering education in every district of the state.
“Considering one college in each district, a total of 30 colleges across the state, have been selected for “Regional Excellence Technological Education System” (RETE- Pronunced as REETI). These are considered under the three categories of incubation, accelerator and Super-30. Private colleges have been considered in districts where there are no government colleges,” he said
“The government is committed to provide highest quality technological education to students in places nearer to them. For this, a high-power was constituted in last November to prepare a framework. Apart from this, a Sub-Committee headed by Prashant Prakash (Chair Person, State Vision Group of Startups) was formed to identify the private/unaided engineering colleges”, Minister explained.
List of colleges selected for the same include, government colleges in Chamarajanagara, Challakere, Hasana, Haveri, Kushalanagara, Talakadu, Krishnarajapete, Raichur, Ramanagara, Karwar, Huvinahadagali engineering colleges, SKSJTI (Bengaluru), University BDT College (Davanagere) and VTU PG centre (Kalaburugi).
Among the private colleges are:

RETE will be implemented under the joint collaboration between the Government, Industry and VTU, bearing 33% expenses each needed for infrastructure and other necessities. The National Education Policy (NEP 2020) has provided an opportunity to take this historical decision. Creating industrial awareness and promoting research based technological education is the intention of upgrading these engineering colleges which are in tier 2 and 3 levels, he stated.
At the end of the project period on 5 years:
* If any college does not reach the expected standard, it will be withdrawn from “Super-30”
* NIRF Ranking should be attained within 3 years. Within 5 years they should have global recognition.
* At least 80% of its programs should have been accredited by NBA.
* Permanent affiliation with VTU should be obtained if required.
* At least 50% of final-year students must get placed by the time they complete their graduation every year 
*75% students should have got at least one high-quality internship experience every year.
Desirable that a few startup established/patents be filed by the students.
