NPTEL Videos

NPTEL stands for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning. This is an initiative by seven Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and sciences. Contents for these video courses are based on the model curriculum suggested by AICTE and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities of India.

The main objective of NPTEL program is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by developing curriculum based video and web courses. This is being carried out by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore as a collaborative project. Five major engineering disciplines have been covered in this project so far (NPTEL Phase I) at the undergraduate (B.E./B.Tech) level. In addition, a number of core curriculum courses common to all engineering programmes such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, management, electronics, language etc. have also been included.

The Library has acquired all NPTEL Video Courses (170) and put them on the library server (Intranet access). Students and Faculty members of the Nirma University can watch these video courses within the campus to enhance their subject knowledge. List of the courses are given below.
