Interested in engineering, science? Looking for Govt. Certified courses at budget-friendly rates? NPTEL is what you need. NPTEL stands for National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) was founded in 2003 by seven reputed institutions of India (IIT's, ISC's). The project is funded by MHRD, Govt. of India. The objective of NPTEL Engineering is to provide a platform for Indian students who cannot afford to be a part of well-known institutions. The aim is to provide valued courses to learners at affordable prices especially in the field of science. They can seek knowledge from excellent professors being at home as all the courses are fully online. Along with engineering, NPTEL also provides Medical as well as Management courses. These courses are available in video as well as in web format.
The focus is on engineering courses mainly. Here, we will know more about these courses. Before that why don't you check out NPTEL Engineering Courses along with various streams details.
NPTEL Transportation Engineering
Living beings have always felt the need to loco mote, for a better experience. As rightly said by, Erol Ozan, a scientist and an author, “You can't understand a city without using its public transportation system.” It speaks about the necessity of transportation. Transportation engineering falls under the civil engineering discipline. It includes planning, functional design, operation and management of facilities for the hassle-free movement of people and goods.
NPTEL Engineering offers 8 different courses by IIT Kharagpur, IIT Madras, IIT Roorkee, IIT Bombay, IIT Kanpur and ISC Banglore. These courses cover NPTEL Transportation Engineering from basics to advanced levels in web and video format. Each lecture pdf generally contains about 4- 40 pages. It includes assignments and quizzes for a better understanding of the subject. Consisting of topics/courses like Geo-informatics in Transportation Engineering, Multi-modal Urban Transportation Systems (MUTS) gives you a varied range of courses.

Traffic Engineering NPTEL
India, as a developing nation we see rising traffic every single day. Even in developed countries like the USA, almost every member of the family owns a vehicle and drives it. The need for traffic engineers will be on the rise by 2030. Civil Engineering branches Traffic Engineering. Traffic Engineering refers to, ensuring safe, proper and efficient movement of people, goods on roadways by the correct use of engineering techniques.
NPTEL Engineering provides 1 course on Traffic Engineering named Traffic Engineering and Management is accessible through web content by Dr.Tom V. Mathew of IIT Bombay. It is for about 9 modules and is available since 2016. The Traffic Engineering NPTEL course provides self-evaluation quizzes, lecture notes which help better for preparation.
NPTEL Chemical Engineering
Chemical engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with producing, designing, transporting and transforming energy and materials by making efficient use with the principles of chemistry, physics, mathematics, biology and economics. Chemical engineering houses Biochemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical process modelling and design, Environmental engineering, Membrane separation processes, Materials science and technology., Nanotechnology, Rubber technology et cetera.
Chemical Engineering is often said to open many options even via one course. There are exact 135 courses listed on NPTEL Engineering website available in web and video content accordingly. The option to download the videos is made available for many courses. The transcripts are made available as well. NPTEL Chemical Engineering covers various topics such as Chemical technology, NOC: Environmental Quality Monitoring and Analysis, Biochemical Engineering and so on.
NPTEL Software Engineering
In layman's language, software engineering is apps development. But, there is a big difference. Software is a set of instructions or data that keeps a track of hardware for its systematic functioning. It emerged in the late 1960’s earlier the computers were extremely slow. It was developed with an aim of how best to maximize the quality of software and of how to create it.
Software Engineering is under computer science and engineering discipline. There are about 8 courses available on NPTEL Software Engineering mainly from IIT Kharagpur and IIT Madras.
NPTEL Mechanical Engineering
Mechanical engineering is a form of engineering combined engineering physics and mathematical principles with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, maintain mechanical systems required at all levels. It is one of the oldest and considered to be one of the very challenging branch of engineering.
It comprises of total 283 courses as shown on NPTEL Engineering site. Out of those, 212 are in audio-visual/video format and rest 71 are in web content. It includes 10 courses of IIT Bombay, which is known as the best IIT for mechanical engineering.
