Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)


The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure, in pursuance of its action plan in terms of performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education. The IQAC is a part of the institution’s system and works towards the realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance, since quality enhancement is a continuous process. The key task of the IQAC is to evolve a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. IQAC will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence, during the post-accreditation period.

The first step towards internalization and institutionalization of quality enhancement initiatives is the work of the IQAC. In all the constituents of the institution, its success depends upon the sense of belongingness and participation that it can implant. The IQAC will be a facilitative and participative voluntary system of the institution and it also has the potential to become a vehicle for steering in quality enhancement in terms of working out planned interventionist strategies thereby removing deficiencies and enhancing quality.


  • To evolve a system to improve the academic and administrative performance of the institution for a conscious, consistent and catalytic action.
  • To endorse measures essential for the quality enhancement of institutional functioning through the internalization of quality culture and institutionalization of best practices

      The Corporate Relations cell is an integral part of our institution, which ensures that the students are well trained and motivated to face campus interviews efficiently. The placement support teams make an effort to organize training related to aptitude, soft skills, technical skills and corporate expectations to groom the students well for the interview process.

      • It is our institute’s distinctiveness in bringing in recruiters from reputed companies from India and abroad placement.
      • The performance of students is improved
      • Easy way to identify the absentees in class and Examinations

      Memorandum of understanding

      • We had a MoU with S’Hail Metals and Rassas Battery Recycling battery for recruiting our students.
      • S’Hail Metals and Rassas Battery Recycling Factory are our abroad recruiters who would identify the best candidates who would be presented to them on the day of the interview process. This abroad placement has also been a source of motivation for the students who aim to get placed and the expenditure for their travel and visa is also borne by the institution. Being located in a rural area and grooming the rural students technically and skillfully to take part in international placement drives is a real challenge to the faculty involved in the research, centre for innovation and the corporate relations departments. It’s all possible through the constant motivation and support from the authorities from the top order at every level. Abroad placement is a pride for the institution and a spotlight for progress towards the goal to be achieved by every student who does justice in making the best use of the study environment provided by Stella Mary’s College of Engineering.
