NPTEL, a project funded by Ministry of Human Resource & Development (MHRD), Government of India and governed by IITs and IISc. NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and science. NPTEL as a project originated from many deliberations between IITs, Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) during the years 1999-2003. Five engineering branches (Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Electronics and Communication and Mechanical) and core science programmes that all engineering students are required to take in their undergraduate engineering programme in India were chosen initially. Contents for the above courses were based on the model curriculum suggested by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities in India.
The main objective of the National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) is to enhance the quality of engineering and science education in the country by developing contents for undergraduate and postgraduate curricula using video and web based courses.These courses cover the syllabi prescribed by universities and approved by AICTE. Course contents will be useful for teacher training and through them improve the quality of students. These courses can be used by professionals for updating their academic background.
