As you may be aware, the main objective of the programme is to upgrade the expertise and capabilities of the faculty members of AICTE approved degree-level engineering institutions, National Institutes of Technology (NITs) and National Institutes of Technical Teachers’ Training and Research (NITTTRs) of the country. The programme launched by the Government of India in the year 1970, is now being implemented and monitored by the National QIP Coordination Committee, funded through AICTE.


There are three main activities under QIP scheme for the faculty of degree-level engineering institutions:

• Providing opportunities to teachers of the degree-level engineering institutions to improve their qualifications by offering admissions to M. Tech and Ph. D. degree programmes.

• Organizing Short Term Courses at the QIP Centers for serving teachers in various emerging areas of technology & research.

Nine major QIP centres at IITs and IISc undertake the various activities listed above. Admission to M.Tech and Ph.D. programmes are also offered in selected areas in additional institutions recognized as minor QIP centers. A large number of teachers from engineering institutions from all over the country have pursued Master and PhD degree programmes under this scheme. These are aimed at improving the standard and quality of technical education through improvement of the qualifications of the faculty members of various engineering institutions.

In the past, a Curriculum Development Cell has been set up at major QIP Centres for improving the effectiveness of technical education in the country. Its activities include curriculum development and revision or preparation of monographs, textbooks, teacher’s manuals, teaching aids and other resource materials, examination reforms, organizing inter-institutional programs, seminars, workshops and panel discussions, development of educational technology, creation of methodologies for formal and informal trainings, technical education of the handicaps, etc. A number of short term courses have also been organized by major QIP Centres for the benefit of the faculty members of Engineering Institutions across the country.

The QIP web sites http://www.iitb.ac.in   http://www.iitbhu.ac.in   http://cepqip.iitd.ac.in   http://www.iitg.ernet.in   href="http://www.iitk.ac.in/qip   will give you necessary information about the programme as well as about the requirements and the procedure to apply for admission in Master / Ph.D. degree programmes.
