About NPTEL:

We are happy to announce that NPR College of Engineering & Technology is listed as Local Chapter for NPTEL. The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) was initiated by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Guwahati and Roorkee) along with the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2003. 350+ Courses related to core disciplines are there for the benefit of Students and Staff members.

These courses cover the syllabi prescribed by universities and approved by AICTE. Course contents will be useful for teacher training and improve students' quality. These courses can be used by professionals to update their academic background.

It is a partnership between the college and NPTEL. To take this initiative forward and to encourage more students across colleges to participate in this initiative, NPTEL is setting up an NPTEL chapter in colleges (with the approval of the management) which will be under the headship of a faculty member of the college, which would be Single Point of Contact (SPOC).

NPTEL will keep the SPOC updated about all the latest NPTEL initiatives and give him/her information that he/she can disseminate among the students. He/she can identify suitable mentors for various courses, who can ensure that students are active in a course, are submitting their assignments on time, and also clarify the doubts they may have.
