Views: 383

AICTEThe All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has invited applications from technical institutes in the northeast under the North East Quality Improvement Programme (NEQIP). Through the Rs 180 crore project the Council is offering funds to help the institutes in infrastructure development, strengthening faculty competence and improving the academic scenario.

The AICTE-approved degree engineering institutions and engineering polytechnics that fulfill the conditions laid down by it will receive a grant of Rs 7 crore and Rs 5 crore each, respectively. Moreover, selected AICTE-approved university departments will also receive a grant of Rs 7 crore each.

Kuncheria P Isaac, member secretary of the AICTE, has recently written to directors of all technical education of all the eight northeastern states (including Sikkim) to ask them to urge institutions to avail the benefits of the project.

The objective of the three-year Project is to strengthen the institutions in terms of infrastructure, quality of teaching, academics, research and consultancy to improve learning outcomes and employability of the students.
