TEQIP (Technical Education Quality Improvement program) is a World Bank assisted National level project of MHRD-GoI. To administer TEQIP-II at IIT Guwahati, a Knowledge Incubation Cell (KIC), sanctioned by MHRD under section 3.1.4 sub-component 1.3: Faculty development for Effective Teaching (Pedagogical Training), was set up in February 2014, which is attached to CET. TEQIP-II, initially sanctioned up to 2015, is extended till October 2016.


Broadly, the objectives of this national level MHRD project are classified as:

  1. Promotion of Academic excellence
  2. Networking of Institutions for Quality enhancement and Resource sharing
  3. Quality and outreach of services to Industry and Economy.

In particular, the objectives of KIC under TEQIP are:

  • Coordinate imparting of Quality Circle Training programs/internship/opportunity to enhance UG, PG & PhD curricula/collaborative research for faculties from TEQIP mapped Institutions .
  • Innovation in Content & Curricula of Technical Education, integrating multidisciplinary approach.
  • Initiate Quality Circles in specific Knowledge Disciplines to harvest best practices in Pedagogy & Knowledge management.
  • Formation and management of complex virtual digital delivery systems required by various technical disciplines.
  • Conduct & Coordinate Short-term courses & Workshops in collaboration with Departments & Centers.
  • Facilitate organizing of Seminars, Symposiums & Conferences to interchange results/ideas - with themes in Education Development, Instructional Design, Communications, deployment of Learning content and Pedagogy, Value education, Personality development etc.
  • Coordinate short-term Internships & visits of students and faculties from project-institutions in collaboration with Departments. Facilitate faculties of these institutions to explore pursuing PhD related work at IITG.

Activities under TEQIP-II:

Department-wise activities can be planned under any of the following events:

  1. Innovation content Development through Collaboration & Mentorship
  2. Project internship for UG/PG students from TEQIP institutions
  3. Short-term courses for training TEQIP faculty (generally, duration to be of 5 days)
  4. Workshop, seminar, symposium for TEQIP faculty (duration can be anything between 1 day to 5 days)
  5. Sabbatical for teachers from TEQIP institutions (maximum two faculty) to pursue PhD under mentorship of IITG
  6. Visiting Faculty Training & mentoring program
