The primary emphasis of IGNOU is on innovation, flexibility, relevance, and cost effectiveness in all its programmes. The University started identifying the disciplines and subject areas for which the distance learning programmes were to be initiated in the first instance.
The area of Engineering and Technology was identified in the early years, keeping in view the emerging need of continuing education and re-training requirements of those at work.
Thus, the School of Engineering and Technology came into existence in 1987, with a clear mandate to address the issues pertaining to continuing and extension education requirements in the country.
The objectives of the School are:
- To devise and conduct degree programmes at the tertiary level.
- To offer opportunities of learning to employed persons.
To conduct extension education programmes in engineering and technology areas for disadvantaged and economically weaker sections.
