AICTE - CII Survey

Objective

Objective of the AICTE-CII Survey is to assess the current status of partnership between technical institutions and industry on six basic parameters such as curriculum, faculty, governance, infrastructure, placements and research and services / project & skill development.

About the awards

The AICTE-CII Survey is being jointly conducted with the AICTE since 2012.

The AICTE-CII Survey for Industry-Linked Technical Institutes maps industry linkages of Indian technical institutesin four broad streams – Engineering, Management, Architecture and Pharmacy. It showcases the best practices of partnerships with industry and highlights the strengths and weaknesses of the ecosystem of technical education in India.

At the end of the survey, awards and citations are given to the Best Industry Linked Institutes.

A detailed report is also released after the survey to give a detailed analysis of the survey findings and data collected regarding the depth of industry linkages of institutes across six parameters – governance, curriculum, faculty, infrastructure, services and placements. The report also categorized the institutes in Platinum, Gold and Silver category according to their scores obtained in the survey.

How to Participate

The AICTE-CII Survey is an online survey which is hosted on the server of AICTE at www.aicte-india.org To participate in this survey, institutes have to use their AICTE login ID to enter the AICTE Web-portal and thereby, have access to the CII Questionnaire tab. The CII Questionnaire tab is itself the online application form.

A detailed help manual is available separately on the AICTE portal to provide step-by-step assistance. This Help Manual can be downloaded for easy understanding and reference. Links to this survey and other details are also available on CII portal www.ciihighereducation.in Those institutes which do not have an AICTE login ID can write to pm.scheme@cii.in in for login credentials to the AICTE web portal.

Outreach

The AICTE-CII Survey is a voluntary survey. The survey link (CII Questionnaire) on the AICTE web-portal went live on 4th May 2016. The eligible institutes are informed through a national advertisement, mailers and SMS alerts.

Methodology

Since this is an online survey, institutes have to fill all the data while being logged on to the net. Institutes can also use the import functionality to upload data for most of the parameters.

For Curriculum Input, Faculty, Services / Projects & Skills Development & Placements, two year data (2014-15 & 2015-16) needs to be provided, whereas for Governance & Infrastructure only one year (2015-16)data is sufficient.

To facilitate ease in filling the data, it is advisable that institutes first download the Help Manual and collect all the data related to all streams. Only one application form is required to be filled by one institute for all streams.

At the end of the survey, the application generates an indicative objective score which is used only as a reference point to create a shortlist of institutes for second stage of evaluation. The indicative objective scores obtained are placed before a high-level jury comprising experts from industry and academia. The jury gives a shortlist of institutes for document scrutiny & site visits. The shortlisted institutes are asked to send all the documents in support of their data. The visiting jury gives its own separate score to every institute based on the ground assessment of facilities and data. This last score is used to prepare the list of final winners. The results of the survey are binding on all institutes.

All cases of arbitration will be referred to the chairman of the jury and his word will be final in any matter of dispute.

The institutes are evaluated on their industry linkages on the following six parameters in every stream separately

  • Governance
  • Curriculum
  • Faculty
  • Infrastructure
  • Services / Projects & Skills Development
  • Placements

The weightages given to these parameters are as follows

Parameter Degree Courses - Weightage Degree Courses - Maximum Score Diploma Courses - Weightage Diploma Courses – Maximum Score
Governance 10% 7 5% 7
Curriculum 20% 17 25% 20
Infrastructure 10% 10 10% 10
Services / Projects & Skill Development 20% 18 20% 17
Placements 20% 19 20% 18

The absolute score is divided by the maximum score and multiplied by weightage to obtain the weighted score for every parameter. The sum of weighted scores across the six parameters is the objective score of the institute for a particular stream.

These parameters are further categorized into sub-parameters

Start of the era

In 2012, CII embarked on a journey of mapping excellence in academia from industry perspective. It conducted a survey of engineering institutes in partnership with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in six streams—Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Computer and IT Engineering and Chemical Engineering. The institutes were mapped on their industry linkages and best practices promoted for others to follow. Six companies sponsored stream-wise awards in 2012-13—Tata Chemicals, Infosys, Forbes Marshall, Elico, Hi-Tech Group and A report on the survey was released by Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr Shashi Tharoor, during the two-day 4th Global Higher Education Summit on 8 November 2012. In 2013, the scope of the survey has been enlarged to include Management, Architecture and Pharmacy also.

Top institutes and faculty for best industry-linkages based on the survey will be recognized and felicitated on 7-8th November in New Delhi in the following categories:

  • Top Industry-Linked Engineering Institute (1 award each in 10 streams—Civil, Chemical, Computer & IT, Electronics & Communications, Electrical, Mining & Metallurgy, Mechanical, Textile, Bio-Medical & Bio-Technology, Agriculture)
  • Top Industry-Linked Management Institute (1 award)
  • Top Industry-Linked Institute of Pharmacy (1 award)
  • Top Industry-Linked Institute of Architecture (1 award)
  • Top Industry-Linked Emerging Institute (2 awards—one each in Engineering, Management)

Excellence in higher education is the key to success of any society and plays an important role in a nation's development. Globally, excellence in higher education, especially technical education, has thrived on robust industry linkages and collaborations. Producing quality human resource and contributing to social and economic development through research are the two vital indicators of excellence of technical institutions. In India, while we have a few success stories of such industry linkages, we still have a long way to go to match the global benchmarks.

In order to stimulate industry-academia collaboration, CII started the exercise of mapping the industry linkages of technical institutes in partnership with the All India Council for Technical Education (ACITE) in 2012. This yearly initiative maps and awards the best technical institutions on their industry linkages leading to a benchmark in India. In 2012, the scope of the survey was limited to AICTE-affiliated engineering colleges and engineering departments of universities in Chemical, Civil, Computer & IT, Electrical, Electronics & Communication and Mechanical Engineering.

The success of the 2012 survey has laid the path for capturing of such linkages on a wider basis and including more streams in its ambit. In 2013, the survey will include Engineering, Management, Architecture and Pharmacy institutes. In addition to AICTE-affiliated institutes, all National Institutes of Technology (NITs) will also be eligible to participate in it. Their industry linkages will be captured through a detailed online questionnaire and the feedback analyzed to arrive at best institutes in every stream. There is a special category of Emerging Institutes in both Engineering and Management.

The survey is conducted through the portal of AICTE and institutes are required to log in to their respective AICTE accounts to fill it. Those institutes (such as NITs) which do not have an AICTE login ID can do so by writing to either AICTE (at admnbureau.aicte@gmail.com)or CII(shalini.sharma@cii.in).They will be assisted with the required formalities for acquiring a login ID.

Filing of Application: 1 May 2014 – 30 June 2014, Announcement of Result: 21– 22 November, at Knowledgexpo 2014, India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR
