TEQIP-III (Details)

Technical Education Quality Improvement Program was conceptualised to strengthen the quality of Engineering Education in the country. Uttar Pradesh has been a part of TEQIP phase I and II. The objective of the project is to help the selected institutions gain autonomy and high standards of education within their institutions, as set by the accreditation bodies. TEQIP III was started in April 2017 which includes governance and performance in the sector. The inclusion of Affiliating Technical Universities (ATUs) and twinning arrangements ensures capacity building and improvement in policy, academic and management practices of project institutions. The reforms for project institutions are in the area of accreditation, autonomy, dropout rates, admissions of disadvantaged groups, faculty recruitments and research and consultancy projects. The reforms by ATUs would be implemented in the areas of learning assessment and examinations, academics, student placement, personnel management and improved data management and administration.

TEQIP III seeks to enhance quality and equity in participating engineering education institutions and improve the efficiency of the engineering education system in focus states. The Project will support two components: 

Component - 1: Improving quality of engineering institutions in focus states

    • Sub-component 1.1: Institutional Development for Participating Institutions
      have been evaluated and 16 institutions have been selected for the State of Uttar Pradesh.
    • Sub-component 1.2: Widening Impact of the project through ATUs in focus states.
    • Sub-component 1.3: Twinning Arrangements to Build Capacity and Improve Performance of Participating Institutions and ATUs
      Institutions (already participated in TEQIP-I and/or II)/ATUs has been done based on the proposed IDPs. It includes establishing a mentoring system for twinning arrangements to build the capacity and improvement in performance of institution/ATUs participating under sub-component 1.1/1.2 respectively.
  • Component - 2: System Level initiatives to strengthen sector governance and performance by key apex bodies in engineering education, including AICTE and NBA, to strengthen the overall system of engineering education.
