National Programme on Technology Enhanced Learning (NPTEL) is a Government of India initiative, to reach out to students and faculty by providing them access to standard technical contents and Online Certifications Courses. HU has established Local Chapter in order to supplement their courses in various disciplines of Engineering & Science, Management and Humanities. A large number of students through NPTEL will have access to quality content from them. All those who are gainfully employed in industries and all other walks of life and who require continuous training and updating their knowledge can benefit from well-developed and peer-reviewed course contents by the IITs and IISc.
The Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) was formed in the year 2001. The vision of the council is “To enable a sustainable built environment for all and facilitate India to be one of the global leaders by 2025”.
The council offers a wide array of services which include developing new green building rating programs, certification services and green building training programs. The council also organizes Green Building Congress, its annual flagship event on green buildings. HU took up an honorary membership of Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), a CII initiative that aims to build an ecological India to promote the sustainable development in the built environment sector in November 2014. As part of this partnership, an “IGBC Student Chapter” had been established to spread awareness on Green Buildings amongst the student community and to ignite the idea of green in young minds.
Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) Student Chapter
An “IGBC Student Chapter” is being established with the following objectives:
- Spread awareness on Green Buildings amongst the student community
- Ignite the idea of green in young minds, thereby facilitating India to become one of the global leaders in embracing green building concepts by 2025.
- Platform for networking
- Opportunity to play an active role in the advocacy of green buildings
- Participation in local chapter activities
Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Chapter is the technical subunit of one or more IEEE Sections. Society Chapters are the local link to the valuable resources available from IEEE and its 39 Technical Societies. With the opening of IEEE Local Chapter at HU Roorkee, it may conduct activities such as guest speakers, workshops, and seminars, as well as social functions. Chapters provide Society members with valuable opportunities to network at a local level – enabling both personal and professional growth.
The objectives of the IEEE society are scientific, literary and educational in character. As of 2018, it is the world’s largest association of technical professionals with more than 423,000 members in over 160 countries around the world. Its objectives are the educational and technical advancement of engineering and allied disciplines. The society shall advance the theory and practice of electrical and electronics engineering and of the allied arts and sciences.
HU Roorkee shall further accentuate close cooperation and exchange of technical information among its students and faculty members, and to this end shall hold meetings for the presentation of papers and their discussion, shall sponsor periodicals and special publications, and through its committees shall study and provide the needs of its student and faculty members.

The ASME student Chapter at Department of Mechanical Engineering, HU Roorkee is established in the session 2020-2021. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is an American professional association that, in its own words, “promotes the art, science, and practice of multidisciplinary engineering and allied sciences around the globe” via “continuing education, training and professional development, codes and standards, research, conferences and publications, government relations, and other forms of outreach.” ASME is an engineering society, a standards organization, a research and development organization, an advocacy organization, a provider of training and education, and a nonprofit organization. Founded as an engineering society focused on mechanical engineering in North America, ASME is today multidisciplinary and global.ASME has over 110,000 members in more than 150 countries worldwide.
The Society receives members from various colleges and universities, and acts as a platform where students and professionals can congregate and endeavour towards a common goal of creating the importance of engineers in the society. They also receive a great opportunity to interact—at local as well as international level—with people in same profession and of like-minded interests. At ASME, the community of engineers worldwide finds support to tackle, and design solutions to, real-world challenges. The ASME codes and standards, publications, conferences, continuing education and professional development programs provide a foundation for advancing technical knowledge and a safer world.
