The Project, Third phase ofTechnical Education Quality Improvement Programme (referred to as TEQIP-III) isfully integrated with the Twelveth Five-year Plan objectives for TechnicalEducation as a key component for improving the quality of Engineering Educationin existing institutions with a special consideration for Low Income States andSpecial Category States (SCS) and support to strengthen few affiliatedtechnical universities to improve their policy, academic and managementpractices. 

TEQIP-III:Project Objectives

The Project will focus on thefollowing objectives:

Improving quality and equity inengineering institutions in focus states viz. 7 Low Income States (LIS), eightstates in the North-East of India, three Hill states viz. Himachal Pradesh,Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Andaman and Nicobar Islands (a unionterritory (UT))

System-level initiatives tostrengthen sector governance and performance which include widening the scopeof Affiliating Technical Universities (ATUs) to improve their policy, academicand management practices towards affiliated institutions, and

Twinning Arrangements to BuildCapacity and Improve Performance of institutions and ATUs participating infocus states.

TEQIP-III:Project Scope

Only the Government and Governmentaided AICTE approved Engineering institutions/Engineering faculty/EngineeringTeaching Department/Constituent Institutions of Universities/Deemed to beUniversities and new centrally funded institutions in SCS will be the part ofthe project. An estimated 200 Government and Government funded Engineeringinstitutions including Affiliating Technical Universities (ATUs) will beselected under different sub-components in one or two cycles.

Sub-component 1.3 : TwinningArrangements to Build Capacity and Improve Performance of ParticipatingInstitutions and ATUs

Institutions (alreadyparticipated in TEQIP-I and/or II)/ATUs will be selected on a competitive basisthrough Challenge Method. Selection will proceed in 3 stages. At the firststage, Eligibility criteria will be used to shortlist the TEQIP-I/TEQIP-IIinstitutes/ Universities followed by ranking on the basis of their performanceassessment. Top rankers from stage-1 will be invited to submit InstitutionDevelopment Proposals (IDPs) in stage-2. The institutions will proceed to stage3 for final selection. The proposal should include establishing a mentoringsystem for twinning arrangements to build the capacity and improvement inperformance of institution/ATUs participating under sub-component 1.1/1.2respectively. 
Institutions are required to define the activities in their IDP that they wantto carry out in the project. These activities should be under the scope of theproject and are those that fulfil the objectives of the project. However, someof the suggested activities under the scope of the project are given below:

  • Procurement of Goods (equipment, furniture, books LRs, software and minor items) and minor civil works
  • Improvement in Teaching, Learning and Research competence
    • Improve student learning
    • Student employability
    • Increasing faculty productivity and motivation
    • Establishing a twinning system
      • Twinning arrangements with institutions under Sub-component 1.1 to build capacity and improved performance
      • Individual Institutional mentors

(Consultantservices if required, can also be procured for the above said activities.)

BirlaVishvakarma Mahavidyalaya (Engineering College) successfully completed the World Bank assisted Technical EducationQuality Improvement Programme (TEQIP-II) and has been selected for the thirdphase of TEQIP (TEQIP-III). Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya(Engineering College) has been selected under subcomponent 1.3 as mentor institute to participate in twinningarrangements for knowledge transfer, exchange of experience, optimizing the useof resources and developing long-term strategic partnerships with Government Engineering College –Banswara(Mentee institute). To facilitate these goals, BVM has been allocated Rs. 7crores under this project in the span of three years (1st April 2017 to 31stMarch 2020).
