Dear Prospective QIP Scholar

Your interest in the "Quality Improvement Programme (QIP)" sponsored by AICTE is appreciated. As you may be aware, the main objective of the programme is to upgrade the expertise and capabilities of the faculty members of the degree-level engineering institutions and the National Institutes of Technical Teachers Training and Research (NITTTR) in 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 the AICTE. There are three main activities under QIP serving the faculty of degree-level engineering institution:

  • Providing opportunities to faculty members of the degree-level engineering institutions to improve their qualifications by offering admissions to Master and Ph.D degree programmes.
  • Organizing Short Term Courses at the QIP Centres for serving teachers.
  • Curriculum Development Cell activities which help to improve class room teaching and learning.

The eight major QIP centres at IITs and IISc undertake the various activities listed above. Admission to Master and Ph.D. programmes are also offered in selected areas in institutions recognized as Minor QIP centres. A large number of faculty members from engineering institutions from all over the country have pursued Master and Ph.D 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 in the various engineering institutions. Now IIT Guwahati is the zonal QIP centre of the North East region with NIT Agartala as the QIP minor centre.

The Curriculum Development Cells have been set up at major QIP Centres for improving the effectiveness of technical educations in the country. The activities include curriculum development and revision or preparation of monographs, textbooks, teachers’ 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 training, technical education of the handicapped, etc. A number of short term courses have also been organized by major QIP Centres for the benefit of the faculty members from Engineering Institutions.

The QIP web sites (www.iitk.ac.in, www.qip.cce.iisc.ernet.in www.iitb.ac.in, www.iitd.ac.in, www.iitg.ernet.in, www.iitkgp.ernet.in www.qip.iitm.ac.in www.iitr.ernet.in www.aicte.ernet.in) will give you necessary information about the programme as well as about the requirements and the procedure for applying for admission to Master / Ph.D degree programmes. The details of the disciplines and specializations available at various centres are also included in the site and also in the admission brochure to enable you to make appropriate choices. You can navigate through the links on the left hand side of the main web page for admission or download the admission brochure. Access to the online submission of application opens on October 1 2015.
