NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras, and Roorkee) and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and science. SHRI JAGDISHPRASAD JHABARMAL TIBREWALA UNIVERSITY the Participating Institution selected under NPTEL since January-2020, College Id 3632 and Coordinated By IIT Kanpur. NPTEL has been offering self-study courses across engineering, humanities, and science streams for more than a decade. NPTEL as a project originated from many deliberations between IITs, Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) during the years 1999-2003. A proposal was jointly put forward by five IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, and Madras) and IISc for creating content for 100 courses as web-based supplements and 100 complete video courses, for forty hours of duration per course. Web supplements were expected to cover materials that could be delivered in approximately forty hours. Five engineering branches (Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Electronics and Communication, and Mechanical) and core science programs that all engineering students are required to take in their undergraduate engineering program in India were chosen initially. Contents for the above courses were based on the model curriculum suggested by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities in India. It a pleasure to receive acceptance from NPTEL on our application so that Shri JJT University has taken this initiative forward and to encourage more students across institutes to participate in this initiative, hence we have enrolled under SWAYAM-NPTEL chapter, who would be Single Point of Contact (SPOC). And SPOC will keep them updated about all the latest NPTEL initiatives and give information that can disseminate among the students.
