As per National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) guidelines every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a pre-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC becomes a part of the institution's system and works towards realization of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance.
The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. AKGEC was accredited by NAAC in 2015 for the first cycle. IQAC established at AKGEC continued to strive for the betterment of processes and setup. The NAAC visited the AKGEC Campus from 22nd to 24th January 2015.
