Quality Improvement Programme from AICTE

The Quality improvement Programme (QIP) was launched by the Government of India in the year 1970. Since its inception, the programme has been striving for improving the quality of technical education in the country. The main objective of the programme is to upgrade the expertise and capabilities of the faculty members of the AICTE approved degree level institutions in the country.

The programme is now being implemented and monitored by All India Council for Technical Education. In “Quality Improvement Programme” only sponsored teachers are eligible for admission with the aim to enable the teachers to acquire Master’s & Doctoral degrees and imbibe in them a culture of research and better teaching educational capabilities by exposing them to the environment of the institutes of study.

Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT), being an Institution of National Importance established by an Act of Parliament, has been nominated as a QIP Center (Minor) for conducting Ph.D. programs in Petroleum Engineering and Chemical Engineering. The total duration of the Ph.D. programme through QIP is 3 years. For admission details, please click here.

The center also offers AICTE sponsored Short Term Courses (STC). These STCs are typically 1- or 2-weeks long courses. For upcoming STCs, please click here.

 Upcoming Short-Term Courses:

  • Reservoir Simulation Challenges and Current Trends (Online Mode): December 13 – 17, 2021
  • Optimization: Principles and Applications in Petrochemical Industries (Online Mode): February 7 – 11, 2021
  • Recent Advances in Oil and Gas Production Enhancement (Online Mode): February 14 –18, 2021
