Emphasising the importance of maintaining standards to uphold the bestowed grade, he explained, “During the NAAC committee’s evaluation, seven parameters were scrutinised, including curriculum, teaching-learning, research, student support programmes, infrastructure, governance, and the institution’s best practices. 

The committee praised Andhra University’s green chemistry curriculum and acknowledged collaborations with defence sector organisations.”

“The accreditation, will be sustained for seven years from the date of announcement, i.e; until November 8, 2030,” the V-C announced.

Prof.  Prasada Reddy said, “With this recognition, the university has become eligible to apply for the status of an Institute of Eminence (IoE).
