IQAC - Internal Quality Assurance Cell

Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)

The Roever Engineering College established the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) during February 2014. The IQAC has since been an integral part of the college which works towards realizing the goals of quality enhancement by developing a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in different aspects of functioning of the college.

In the capacity of Coordinator, IQAC, I am involved in all major committees and other bodies where academic, administrative and student centric procedures are evolved. Facilitating Academic Audit, preparing Annual Report, participating in NIRF, NBA, Affiliation and all other quality audit process are some of the few activities regularly undertaken by IQAC. The Cell documents and reports various activities of the college for various higher education requirements.

Through all these measures IQAC happens to be one of the important components of the college which ensures quality and continuous improvement in all the units / aspects of the college.
