Apart from the teaching by the faculty of the institute, the institute has set up facilities to receive lectures and courses delivered by prominent faculty members and experts at other institutions of repute.

Remote Centre of IIT Bombay

Under an MOU signed with IIT Bombay in May 2004 , the institute has set up a remote centre of the Distance education Programme of IIT Bombay, The programe is now known as Centre for Distance Engineering Education Programme (CDEEP) of IIT Bombay. Under this programme some of the courses of PG level,  senior UG level and expert lectures being delivered at IIT Bombay are transmitted live via VSAT network and received at the institute, Students attend these lectures in  specially designed class room with facility to have audio and video interaction with  the faculty. The network supports two way audio and video interaction.  The students of the institute benefit immensely from good quality expert lectures.

EDUSAT network

ISRO has taken the initiative to launch a state of the art  Communication satellite to provide communication channels dedicated  to education and training. Institute of technology has installed a Satellite Interactive Terminal(SIT) to participate in AICTE’s Expert lectures and courses which are delivered through EDUSAT channel.  The SIT terminal is interfaced with the Intranet so that the lectures  received  can be viewed  on any PC across the campus giving students the vide accessibility to such programmes.

NPTEL Local Chapter at Institute of Technology

NPTEL has been offering self-study courses across engineering, humanities and science streams for more than a decade. These are available at: http://nptel.ac.in . From March 2014 NPTEL has been offering online certification for its courses, the highlight being the certification exam through which the student gets an opportunity to earn a certificate form the IITs!
To take this initiative forward and to encourage more students across colleges to participate in this initiative, NPTEL has been setting up NPTEL Local Chapter in colleges. Recently NPTEL has given approval to set up a Local Chapter at Institute of Technology, Nirma University.
