On Tuesday, July 19, Karnataka Minister for Higher Education, Dr C N Ashwath Narayan, said 30 engineering colleges in the state have been selected for Regional Ecosystem For Technical Excellence (RETE). The RETE has the objective of upgrading these select engineering colleges across the state as technical colleges of global standard in five years, he said.
