IMPORTANT NOTICE: Press articles about JSS Academy
12 Feb 2014

Council wishes to bring to the attention of students, parents and the general public that it has taken cognisance of several recent press articles, debating the subject of recognition of the degree awarded by VTU India and run at the JSS Academy of Technical Education, Mauritius, and in which its name as well as that of its Registrar were used.

Council wishes to inform all those concerned that these press articles appear to create some confusion regarding the role and the decision making powers of Council and the role of its Registrar, who is Secretary to the Council and who only conveys decisions taken by the Council.

Council wishes to point out that:

  1. The Registrar of CRPE cannot be said to "ne demord pas" because his role is only to convey decisions of the Council;
  2. Any decision taken so far regarding JSS Academy and published on CRPE website was taken collectively by the Council and are not decisions of its Registrar;
  3. Council's stand is with regard to the recognition of the engineering degree currently run at JSS Academy and awarded by VTU for the practice of engineering as a profession. Council's view is that the permission to run any course, or suspend same, rests with the Tertiary Education Commission and consequently any press article imputing motives to Council to stop JSS Academy from running courses is misleading and unfounded;
  4. Any communication sent to Council is tabled at the Council's formal meeting and it is untrue and unfounded to infer that a letter has been "bouder par le CRPE" simply because it has not been replied yet;
  5. "Le CRPE dispose des meme pouvoir que le Medical Council" is a dangerous and unfounded statement to make in a press article. CRPE cannot and does not pretend to be the regulatory body of the practice of Medicine in Mauritius, as may be inferred from this statement. CRPE is a regulatory body set up by an Act of Parliament solely for regulating the practice of Engineering in Mauritius;
  6. There does not exist "deux ecoles de pensee au CRPE". All decisions taken at the Council are collective decisions following discussions and debates on the topic at hand;
  7. For recall, the decision taken by Council on 16 December 2013 has been to suspend (and not to annul) the recognition of the engineering degree run by JSS Academy and awarded by VTU until evidence is produced by JSS Academy that this degree is recognised by the Undergraduate Grants Commission of India (UGC) or the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). Consequently, CRPE will be willing to reconsider its decision once the appropriate evidence is produced;
  8. The above decision does not affect those students studying at VTU in India, whose engineering degree is recognised by the competent authority in the country of origin, namely UGC or AICTE, and are consequently recognised by CRPE as well;
  9. CRPE wishes to point out that this decision is with a view to protect students' interest by ensuring that they eventually obtain a degree which is professionally recognised in the country of origin (India in this case) and consequently in Mauritius too.

Council will invite all those having queries on the matter, or wishing to have the factual stand of Council on this matter to send in their requests in writing either to engineeringcouncil@mail.gov.mu or by post to:
