Under the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT), funded by the Ministry of Human Resources Development, Government of India, a proper balance between content generation, research in critical areas relating to imparting of education and connectivity for integrating our knowledge with the latest advancements is being attempted."Train 10 thousand teachers" is a major initiative under the NMEICT, in which IIT Kharagpur and IIT Bombay are working as partner institutes to improve the teaching skills of engineering college teachers of the country in core Engineering and Science subjects. Under the programme, two-week ISTE workshops are held during the vacation period in summer and winter. Live lectures are given by IIT faculty. The participating teachers attend at a remote center close to their own college, and also attend tutorial and lab sessions conducted in the same center. The lecture transmission and live interaction takes place through distance mode using the AVIEW technology and the internet, at selected remote centers across the country.


SWAYAM is an indigenous (Made in India) IT Platform for hosting the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). To improve Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER), from 20% at present to 30% by 2020 SWAYAM promises to be a possible solution with a capacity to revolutionise the education system in India. The journey of SWAYAM can be traced back to 2003 with the initiation of the NPTEL (National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning), a joint programme of IITs and IISc. This was the first major attempt in E-learning in the country through online Web and Video courses in Engineering, Science and humanities streams. The launch of the National Mission on Education through ICT (NMEICT) in February 2009 further broadened the scope catering to all disciplines in the Higher Education sector. As on date under the NMEICT huge amount of e-content have been generated which are available under the CCBY- SA license. NPTEL has developed e-content for 933 Courses, Consortium of Educational Communication (CEC) for Undergraduate subjects in 67 Subjects, University Grants Commission (UGC) in 77 Post Graduate subjects. Similarly, many other institutions have developed e-content in different disciplines at different level. Under the SWAYAM initiative all the contents developed under NMEICT are being repurposed and being made MOOCs compliant. 

Internet facilities are available at administrative block under NME-ICT scheme with 10 Mbps speed, which is now distributed to all the departments, Labs, classrooms, staffrooms, Library and offices.  College has also provided internet facility to all the departments through Wi-Fi Network.
