The Project ‐ second phase of the Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) seeks to strengthen selected institutions to produce more employable and higher quality engineers and prepare more post‐graduate students to reduce faculty shortage.
“Strengthening of Institutions” is the long term objective of the Project emphasizing on production of more employable and higher quality graduate engineers. Improving quality of education (learning outcomes) and employability of graduates are medium‐term outcomes.
The Project is composed of the following Components and Sub‐components:
Component ‐ 1 : Improving Quality of Education in Selected Institutions
This Component aims to strengthen around 200 competitively selected Engineering Education Institutions to improve learning outcomes and employability of graduates and scale‐up Postgraduate education, research & development and innovation and establishing centres of excellence. The faculty of these institutions will also be offered pedagogical training for effective teaching.
The objectives of this Component will be achieved through the following Sub‐components:
Sub‐component 1.1 : Strengthening institutions to improve learning outcomes and employability of graduates.
[Kerala participates in the sub-component 1.1]
Sub‐component 1.2 : Scaling‐up Postgraduate Education and Demand‐ Driven Research & Development and Innovation
Sub‐component 1.2.1 : Establishing Centres of Excellence
Sub‐component 1.3 : Faculty Development for Effective Teaching (Pedagogical Training)
Component ‐ 2 : Improving System Management
This Component aims to build capacity of Technical Education policy planners, administrators and implementers at the Central, State, and Institutional levels to effectively implement the institutional reforms and to introduce and sustain innovative systemic quality improvement practices.
It also aims to provide timely, sufficient, precise, and reliable information to improve and assess the performance of the selected institutions for effective Project Management through the following sub‐ components:
Sub‐component 2.1 : Capacity Building to Strengthen Management
Sub‐component 2.2 : Project Management, Monitoring and Evaluation
