To provide advanced learning and acquaintance in engineering and technology VCE is encouraging SWAYAM (Study Webs of Active Learning for Young Aspiring Minds) – Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India initiative – Massive Open Online courses (MOOCs) – SWAYAM/NPTEL.
The National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) is a project initiated and handled by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT-Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, Roorkee, and Guwahati) and Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore. It is a project funded by MHRD, Government of India, to develop and promote multimedia and web technology based learning open for all. Currently, more than 1200 courses are available on the web portal http://nptel.ac.in for viewing and downloading.
NPTEL has also initiated open online courses with certification where courses in different domains are regularly launched. Interested students can enroll in the courses at http://onlinecourses.nptel.ac.in. At the end of the course a certification exam (optional) is held on specific dates at specific centers. A certificate from IIT is awarded to those who register and appear for the examination. These exams have nominal fees with a facility of scholarship and partial fee waiver for SC/ST candidates.
The college has a complete series of video lectures available from NPTEL here.
We are glad to announce that our college is an approved NPTEL local chapter from November 2015 (http://nptel.ac.in/LocalChapter/list_of_colleges.php). This facilitates our students and faculty to use NPTEL content better. Each department has an NPTEL coordinator.
