Teachers in engineering institutions get an opportunity to study at IIT under the quality improvement program (QIP). The QIP selections are made centrally and announcement for applications are made each year. Teachers will have to send in their applications through their institutions. The list of applications qualifying for interview / test is drawn up centrally on our all India basis and the teachers will be interviewed at the IIT of choice indicated by them. Qualification in GATE is not a pre condition for selection. Teachers continue to remain as employees of their college during the period of study at IIT. The FIP (Faculty Improvement Program) are similar to QIP but apply to teachers in private engineering institutions.
Please watch‚ for QIP admissions in the newspapers as well IITM webpage.
