The main objectives of the Scheme are to:

  • Create a Skilled Workforce: Train 100,000 students to work with AI and enhance Digital Public Infrastructure and Goods.
  • Transform Teaching and Learning: Implement AI to scale and align educational processes with industry trends.

Pupilfirst has partnered with The University of Trans-Disciplinary Health Sciences and Technology (TDU) to issue credits via ABC to all students whose home institutions cannot offer credits.

For institutions approved by AICTE, and are keen on offering credits to your students across all applicable departments who will be taking the courses, you can join by doing the following:

Roles and Responsibilities

  • Appoint a senior faculty member as Faculty Coordinator.
  • Execute an MoU with Pupilfirst.
  • Get the curriculum approved by the University/Institute's regulatory authority or management committee (such as Board of Studies, Academic Council, etc.).
  • Issue credits to all your students upon completion of courses and internships.

Why Become a Partner University/Institute?

  • Be among the top pioneers - Position your institution at the forefront of education by equipping students with cutting-edge skills in AI and web development.
  • Enhanced Academic Offerings - Integrate advanced curricula and provide students with valuable, nationally recognized credits through real-world projects and internships.

By joining this initiative, your institution can play a crucial role in shaping the future of AI and digital infrastructure while providing students with unparalleled opportunities and skills.


  • For Institutions who do not fall under the purview of AICTE or have not enabled ABC yet, your students can receive the credits from TDU via ABC and have it transferred at a later date.
  • Students and Adults who are not currently with any institution can also get certification and credits from TDU.
