A Theoretical Framework for Attainment of Total Quality in Engineering Education Institutes : A Case Study for Chhattisgarh Region

Authors(2) :-Shailesh Vaidya, Gyan Chand Khimesera

Technical institutes are continually producing the huge amount of engineering graduate students with technical knowledge and skills as per present requirement of industry. The maximum numbers of engineering educational institutes (EEIs) are witnessed for providing low quality education due to non availability of specific model to achieve total quality of education. The objective of EEIs is to produce good quality students having good knowledge and skills to face present standard successfully. However, to achieve total quality in EEIs there is a need of a theoretical framework which help to improve total quality of EEIs situated in Chhattisgarh. The lot of tools and techniques are available for quality management of technical education such as Total Quality Management (TQM), Continues Quality Improvement, Six Sigma (SS) methodology, Lean Management (LM) Concept, Knowledge Management (KM) approach etc. This study proposed a theoretical framework of Integrated Educational Quality Management Framework (IEQMF) to achieve total quality of EEIs. The findings of this study have to meet the expectation of customer (i.e. guardian/ industry) and improvement in wealth of EEI. The objective of this study is to discuss the development and implementation of framework to achieve total quality of EEIs situated in Chhattisgarh region.
