FACULTY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM


Faculty development program aims to update the faculties of technical institutions with the recent advancements and strategies to a better futuristic teaching. We arrange five days training sessions for faculties from the institutions under this scheme. Commencement of these sessions takes place during summer and winter and consists of maximum of 30 hours learning. Faculties from our IIT conduct the classes, sometimes along with one visiting expert faculty with immense expertise in the particular field concerned. The program includes both classroom and practical sessions to make topic more understandable. Field studies are also arranged as per necessity.

PROMOTING UG PG RESEARCH


India is one of those countries where a huge amount of people peruse for higher studies but unfortunately least number of students ends up in the field of research and development. A new techno power like India needs more of its young brains to engage in experimentation. This calls for a need to make the pupil lean towards research work early from their undergraduate curriculum itself. Introducing students to the world of innovation asks for interest of the government, and all the personnel of the educational sphere. Under graduation and post-graduation is the best time to make the students reorient their preferences towards R&D rather than doing the same run of the mill jobs. To get out from this orthodox trend of just looking for jobs to earn money we, The TEQIP cell IIT Roorkee promotes and supports undergraduate and postgraduate students of focused state TEQIP institutions to opt for superior quality research project during their UG and PG courses. Starting from Research funding, laboratory setup to proper guidance; we try to get every way straighten up for the young minds to take off.

Information regarding the application procedure and further details will be updated soon.


COLLABORATIVE PROJECT


Collaboration brings a chance of superiority in work. Institutes collaborating for research projects enable the students to get an exposure to teamwork.

Currently we collaborate with the TEQIP institutes who are keen to organize any seminar or symposium and sponsor them for such initiatives.


GATE SENSITIZATION


Technical education is not limited to achieving a graduate degree and the field has a lot of innovation and research opportunity. Graduate Aptitude Test Engineering (GATE) is one such door that enables students to explore this domain of research and development. Qualifying GATE will enable them to pursue higher studies and research works. GATE qualification is valid to get into almost all the institutes all over India and even some institutes in abroad also. There is a shear tendency among students of opting for jobs after their graduation without even realising the sea of opportunities waiting for them ahead if they pitch on higher studies. Many of the students step back because of financial issues but GATE qualification enables them to get a fellowship for continuing further studies in Government institutes. Thereby the TEQIP IIT Roorkee emphasizes on organizing GATE sensitization orientation workshops at participating institutes through best possible faculty, PhD, PG students of IIT Roorkee. They motivate the students of under graduation to reorient them to research and higher studies and clear all the doubts regarding the test. The workshops will be arranged in the mentee institutes so that more students can join us.

Eligibility: All the students of under graduation and post-graduation from institutes under TEQIP Program.

Duration of Workshop: 1 day
