The Board of Technical Education Uttar Pradesh was set up in 1958. Its function is to affiliate institutions and prescribed courses of study and instructions leading to examinations conducted by it.
In May 1958, the state established the “State Board Of Technical Education and Training.” In 1960, the Board of Technical Education Uttar Pradesh held its first examination for diploma-level courses as well as the Draughtsman Certificate Course. In 1962, the state Board’s name was changed to “Board Of Technical Education.” The “U.P. Pravidhic Shiksha Adhiniyam – 1962” was enacted the same year, giving the Board statutory status. In 1962, the Board held examinations for approximately 2500 students in three major disciplines of Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering at 25 different Centers/Institutions. It is led by a chairman, a vice-chairman, and 40 members appointed by the state government. Ex-officio member secretary of the Board is Secretary, Board of Technical Education, U.P.
The curriculum prepared by other institutions was adopted by the Board until 1980, but after that, the curriculum and syllabi were developed and revised at the Board level through its Curriculum development center every five years. I.R.D.T. Kanpur has been tasked with developing the curriculum. The Board of Technical Education, U.P. now examines and approves the syllabus developed by IRDT, Kanpur, and prescribes it for institutions affiliated with the Board of Technical Education, U.P. Approximately 250,000 students are currently being examined in the institutions affiliated with the Board in the following 60 disciplines over one, two, three, and four years.
