The IQAC supports all programmes in the institute to take up continual improvement projects which enhances the effectiveness of teaching and learning.

Various quality initiatives to improve the quality of teaching-learning process and other activities in the institute are discussed in the regular meetings of members of IQAC. The quality improvement initiatives discussed are informed to Heads of Department and advised to discuss further with their respective faculty and staff and to implement.

One practice institutionalized as IQAC initiative is the preparation of department calendar of events. It was discussed in the IQAC meeting and decided to prepare the Department Calendar of Events with proper planning of various events to be organized in the department in a particular semester. The calendar of events is being prepared before the beginning of the semester which indicates the departmental events including Invited lectures, Workshops for Students, Faculty Development Programmes, Project Exhibitions, Technical Talks, Hackathon, Panel Discussion with Industrialists, etc. All these events help students to develop leadership qualities, technical knowledge, organizational skills and networking skills.
