The Continuing Education Programme (CEP) and Quality Improvement Programme (QIP), commonly referred as QIP was launched in 1970 with an objective of upgrading the expertise and capability of faculty members of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) approved Engineering Colleges in the country.
