Dear Prospective QIP Scholar

Your interest in the `Quality Improvement Programme (QIP)' sponsored by AICTE is appreciated. As you may be
aware, the main objective of the programme is to upgrade the expertise and capabilities of the faculty members of the
degree-level engineering institutions and the National Institutes of Technical Teachers Training and Research
(NITTTR) in the country. The programme launched by the Government of India in the year 1970, is now being
implemented and monitored by the National QIP Coordination Committee, funded through the AICTE.

There are three main activities under QIP serving the faculty of degree-level engineering institution:
    • Providing opportunities to faculty members of the degree-level engineering institutions to improve their
        qualifications by offering admissions to Master and Ph.D degree programmes.

    • Organizing Short Term Courses at the QIP Centres for serving teachers.
    • Curriculum Development Cell activities which help to improve class room teaching.

The eight major QIP centres at IITs and IISc undertake the various activities listed above. Admission to Master and
Ph.D. programmes are also offered in selected areas in additional 15 recognized institutions. A large number of faculty
members from engineering institutions from all over the country have pursued Master and Ph.D degree programmes
under this scheme. These are aimed at improving the standard and quality of technical education through improvement
of the qualifications of the faculty members in the various engineering institutions.

The Curriculum Development Cells have been set up at major QIP centres for improving the effectiveness of technical
educations in the country. The activities include curriculum development and revision or preparation of monographs,
textbooks, teacher’s manuals, teaching aids and other resource materials, examination reforms, organizing inter-
institutional programs, seminars, workshops and panel discussions, development of educational technology, creation
of methodologies for formal and informal training, technical education of the handicapped etc. A number of short term
courses have also been organized by major QIP Centres for the benefit of the faculty members from Engineering
Institutions. The courses have proved very popular and useful.

The QIP web sites (www.iisc.ernet.in www.iitb.ac.in           www.iitd.ernet.in  www.iitg.ernet.in www.iitk.ac.in
www.iitkgp.ernet.in        www.qip.iitm.ac.in     www.iitr.ernet.in   www.aicte.ernet.in) will give you necessary
information about the programme as well as about the requirements and the procedure for applying for admission to
Master / Ph.D degree programmes. The details of the disciplines and specializations available at various centres are
also included in the site and also in the brochure to enable you to make appropriate choices. You can navigate
through the links on the left or download the brochure.

Please note that the last date for the receipt of the application in the office of the Principal QIP Coordinator is
19th October 2006. The last date for on-line submission of application is 13th October 2006.

The procedure of admission under QIP involves the following steps:
         • Scrutiny of all applications in the office of the Principal QIP Coordinator.
         • Short-listing by individual institutions for interviews and dispatch of call letters to those selected for
         • Recommendations by the institutions.
         • Final selection by the National QIP Coordination Committee (NQCC) and
         • Offer of Advance Admission by the Institution where the final selection has been recommended by NQCC.

The schedule of interviews at various QIP centres is given in the QIP website as well as in the brochure, so that you
can plan your travel for attending the interviews at places of your choice. For further information about the QIP, the
application form or any associated item, you may contact the Principal QIP coordinator or any of the Coordinators of
the centres listed in the site and brochure.

For further information about a particular institution or a particular department therein, you may directly write to the
