Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) was envisaged in 2003 as a long-term Programme of about 10-12 years duration to be implemented in 3 phases for transformation of the Technical Education System. As per TEQIP concept and design, each phase is required to be designed on the basis of lessons learnt from implementation of an earlier phase. TEQIP-I1 started a reform process in 127 institutions. The reform process needs to be sustained and scaled-up for embedding gains in the system and taking the transformation to a higher level. To continue the development activities initiated through TEQIP-I, a sequel project is planned as TEQIP-II2. The Project duration shall be for four years (2010-2014).
To scale-up and support ongoing efforts of the Government of India to improve quality of Technical Education and enhance existing capacities of the institutions to become dynamic, demand-driven, quality conscious, efficient and forward looking, responsive to rapid economic and technological developments occurring at the local, State, National and International levels. It has a clear focus on the objectives to improve the overall quality of existing Engineering Education.
The Project will focus on the following objectives:
Strengthening institutions to produce high quality Engineers for better employability.
Scaling-up Postgraduate Education and demand-driven Research & Development and Innovation.
Establishing Centres of Excellence for focused applicable research,
Training of faculty for effective Teaching.
Enhancing Institutional and System Management effectiveness.
The Project will be implemented in pursuance of the National Policy on Education (NPE-1986 revised in 1992) through the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) of the Government of India as a “Centrally Sponsored Scheme” with matching contribution from the State Governments and Union Territories (UTs). The Project cost will be shared by MHRD and States and private unaided institutions. Project cost in the funded and aided institutions for all sub-components will be shared between the Central Government and State governments in the ratio of 75:25 by all States except the Special Category States for which the ratio will be 90:10. For Centrally Funded Institutions, the entire Project cost will be borne by MHRD.
