Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme(TEQIP)

The Project, Third phase of Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (referred to as TEQIP-III) is fully integrated with the Twelfth Five-year Plan objectives for Technical Education as a key component for improving the quality of Engineering Education in existing institutions with a special consideration for Low Income States and Special Category States and support to strengthen few affiliated technical universities to improve their policy, academic and management practices.

Project Objectives:
The Project will focus on the following objectives:

  • Improving quality and equity in engineering institutions in focus states viz. 7 Low Income States (LIS1), eight states in the North-East of India, three Hill states viz. Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Andaman and Nicobar Islands (a union territory (UT)),
  • System-level initiatives to strengthen sector governance and performance which include widening the scope of Affiliating Technical Universities (ATUs) to improve their policy, academic and management practices towards affiliated institutions, and
  • Twinning Arrangements to Build Capacity and Improve Performance of institutions and ATUs participating in focus states.

Project Scope:
Only the Government and Government aided AICTE approved Engineering institutions/Engineering faculty/Engineering Teaching Department/Constituent Institutions of Universities/Deemed to be Universities and new centrally funded institutions in SCS will be the part of the project. An estimated 200 Government and Government funded Engineering institutions including Affiliating Technical Universities (ATUs) will be selected under different sub-components in one or two cycles.

Project Design:
TEQIP seeks to enhance quality and equity in participating engineering education institutions and improve the efficiency of the engineering education system in focus states. The Project will support two components:

Sub-component 1.1 : Institutional Development for Participating Institutions

To focus on improving quality and equity in engineering education in all government and government-aided institutions and technical universities, including ATUs, in seven low-income states (LIS), three hill states, all states in the North-East of India, and Andaman & Nicobar Islands.

Sub-component 1.2: Widening Impact through ATUs focus States

To support the Affiliated Technical Universities (ATUs) in seven LIS, eight states in the North-East of India, three Hill states and Andaman and Nicobar Islands (a union territory (UT)) to implement the reforms in the areas like academic, learning assessment and examination, student placement, personnel management and improving data management and administration.

Sub-component 1.3 : Twinning Arrangements to Build Capacity and Improve Performance of Participating Institutions and ATUs

To support the priorities identified by Sub-component 1.1 and 1.2 institutions in their IDPs and Action Plans through twinning arrangements to build capacity and improve performance.



To build the capacity of technical education policy planners, administrators and implementers at the central, state, and institutional levels. In particular, capacity building is intended to support the effective implementation of reforms, innovative management initiatives, and knowledge sharing workshops between TEQIP institutions and non-TEQIP institutions.

Equity Action Plan of January 2020 to September 2020
JNTUH College of Engineering Hyderabad is one of the 60 Institutes in the country selected to receive grants from Government of India, under Subcomponent 1.2 of the TEQIP Project-Phase II. The implementation of the project is done through State Project Facilitating Unit (SPFU) of the Govt. Of Andhra Pradesh and monitored by the National Project Implementation Unit (NPIU). The Funding is to the tune of 12.5 crs.

Objectives :
  • Significantly increase enrolment in PG programs & Ph.D in Engineering Disciplines
  • Enhance Quality of Engineering Research and Development and Innovation
  • Enhance Interaction with Industries.
The Duration of the Project is 2010-2014. However due to delay in implementation the first Installment of the project of 2 crore rupees is released to the college in July 2012. The second installment is released on satisfactory performance of the Institution with the first installment.

The college for Institutional Development Proposed to utilize the funding for

  • Providing Teaching and Research Assistantships for significantly increasing enrolment in existing and new Masters and Doctoral programmes in Engineering disciplines.
  • Infrastructure Improvement / Equipment for newly introduced courses and modernization of existing PG labs Staff Development based on TNA
  • Industry Institute Interaction Activities
