NPTEL stands 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.
A proposal was jointly put forward by five IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur and Madras) and IISc for creating contents for 100 courses as web based supplements and 100 complete video courses, for forty hours of duration per course. Web supplements were expected to cover materials that could be delivered in approximately forty hours. 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.
Students of University of Engineering & Management (UEM), Kolkata won the 1st prize in #NPTEL, IIT Kharagpur nationally amongst all colleges of the country where various IITs also participated.
University as a whole won the AAA #rating which is the best amongst all.
Even the 4th prize was won by IEM students followed by several IITs.
The award function was held at IIT Chennai and was attended by Prof. Dr. Rajiv Ganguly, Dean, UEM Kolkata, Prof. Amitava Chakraborty, UEM Kolkata and Prof. Dr. Amlan Kusum Nayak, Principal, IEM, Kolkata. #achievement
