NPTEL is an acronym for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning which provides e-learning, through online Web and Video courses in various branches such as Engineering, Science and humanities. It is the result of initiative taken up by seven IITs viz IITs of Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee and IISc, Bengaluru is especially for promoting course contents in engineering and science. Engineering branches such as Civil, Computer Science, Electrical, Electronics and Communication and Mechanical and core science programme for students at the undergraduate engineering level were selected. Contents for the above courses are based on the model curriculum suggested by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and the syllabi of main affiliating Universities.


This covers free services of text books, qualitative scientific journals meant for scholars.
