NPTEL stands for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning. This is an initiative by seven Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) and Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) for creating course contents in engineering and sciences. Contents for these video courses are based on the model curriculum suggested by AICTE and the syllabi of major affiliating Universities of India.

The main objective of NPTEL program is to enhance the quality of engineering education in the country by developing curriculum based video and web courses. This is being carried out by seven IITs and IISc Bangalore as a collaborative project. Five major engineering disciplines have been covered in this project so far at the undergraduate (B.E./B.Tech) level. In addition, a number of core curriculum courses common to all engineering programmes such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, management, electronics, language etc. have also been included.
