    How to Participate

    The AICTE-CII Survey is an online survey which is hosted on the server of AICTE at www.aicte-india.org To participate in this survey, institutes have to use their AICTE login ID to enter the AICTE Web-portal and thereby, have access to the CII Questionnaire tab. The CII Questionnaire tab is itself the online application form.

    A detailed help manual is available separately on the AICTE portal to provide step-by-step assistance. This Help Manual can be downloaded for easy understanding and reference. Links to this survey and other details are also available on CII portal www.cii-uic.in Those institutes which do not have an AICTE login ID can write to karnika.bansal@cii in for login credentials to the AICTE web portal.

    Outreach

    The AICTE-CII Survey is a voluntary survey. The survey link (CII Questionnaire) on the AICTE web-portal went live on 4th May 2016. The eligible institutes are informed through a national advertisement, mailers and SMS alerts.

    Methodology

    Since this is an online survey, institutes have to fill all the data while being logged on to the net. Institutes can also use the import functionality to upload data for most of the parameters.

    For Curriculum Input, Faculty, Services / Projects & Skills Development & Placements, two year data (2014-15 & 2015-16) needs to be provided, whereas for Governance & Infrastructure only one year (2015-16)data is sufficient.

    To facilitate ease in filling the data, it is advisable that institutes first download the Help Manual and collect all the data related to all streams. Only one application form is required to be filled by one institute for all streams.

    At the end of the survey, the application generates an indicative objective score which is used only as a reference point to create a shortlist of institutes for second stage of evaluation. The indicative objective scores obtained are placed before a high-level jury comprising experts from industry and academia. The jury gives a shortlist of institutes for document scrutiny & site visits. The shortlisted institutes are asked to send all the documents in support of their data. The visiting jury gives its own separate score to every institute based on the ground assessment of facilities and data. This last score is used to prepare the list of final winners. The results of the survey are binding on all institutes.

    All cases of arbitration will be referred to the chairman of the jury and his word will be final in any matter of dispute.

    The institutes are evaluated on their industry linkages on the following six parameters in every stream separately

  • Governance
  • Curriculum
  • Faculty
  • Infrastructure
  • Services / Projects & Skills Development
  • Placements
  • The weightages given to these parameters are as follows

    Parameter Degree Courses - Weightage Degree Courses - Maximum Score Diploma Courses - Weightage Diploma Courses – Maximum Score
    Governance 10% 7 5% 7
    Curriculum 20% 17 25% 20
    Infrastructure 10% 10 10% 10
    Services / Projects & Skill Development 20% 18 20% 17
    Placements 20% 19 20% 18

    The absolute score is divided by the maximum score and multiplied by weightage to obtain the weighted score for every parameter. The sum of weighted scores across the six parameters is the objective score of the institute for a particular stream.


    These parameters are further categorized into sub-parameters
