New Delhi: CL Educate Ltd has been empaneled as a service provider for improving employability skills of engineering students in Technical Education Quality Improvement Project-III (TEQIP-III) institutions.
Under the aegis of TEQIP-III, the Government of India and the World Bank have signed a US$ 201.50 million (approx. INR 1300 Crore) credit agreement to enhance the quality and equity of engineering education in several focus states of India.
TEQIP-III will initially support an estimated 200 engineering institutes across the country to nurture engineers of higher quality and employability. Some of the engineering colleges covered under TEQIP-III include NITs in Agartala, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, and Srinagar, among others. Additionally, IIITs in Guwahati and Manipur, and engineering colleges in Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, etc., fall under the purview of TEQIP-III.
