NPTEL is an initiative by seven Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT Bombay, Delhi, Guwahati, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Madras and Roorkee) and Indian Institute of Science (IISc) for creating digital or web-based course contents in engineering and science so that the students can have a choice of wider range of subjects they may be interested in and also learn from the greatest minds of the country. NPTEL as a project originated from many deliberations between IITs, Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) during the years 1999-2003. A proposal was jointly put forward by five IITs (Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur and Madras) and IISc for creating contents for more than 100 courses as web-based supplements and more than 100 complete video courses, for approximately forty hours of duration per course.
