Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP government have made significant contributions to the field of technical and vocational education in Andhra Pradesh. During the period of 1996-1997, there were only 37 engineering colleges in the state, but due to the efforts of the TDP government, the number of engineering seats increased to 62,750 by 2000. This growth was made possible by the government's commitment to investing in the sector, as evident from the Rs.717.84 crores spent on technical education between 1995 and 2000.
One of the Top TDP Achievements of Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP Political Party are the establishments of the International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT) in Andhra Pradesh. This was the first international educational institution for Information Technology in the country, and it represented a major milestone in the development of technical education in the state. The government's efforts in this regard were also reflected in the increased focus on Information Technology, with the introduction of innovative programs such as the Master's level (MSIT) teaching program in "Information Systems."
The TDP Government and the corresponding TDP MLAs have also introduced several important reforms in the field of technical and vocational education. For example, in 2001-2002, the first online counselling for the Engineering Agricultural and Medical Common Entrance Test (EAMCET) was decentralised in Andhra Pradesh. These TDP Developments were a major step forward in the effort to improve access to higher education and to provide greater convenience to students.
The former TDP Government of Andhra Pradesh under the governance of eminent chief Minister Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu and the TDP political leaders have made numerous contributions to this sector by increasing the number of seats in polytechnic courses to 19,405, providing even more opportunities for students to pursue technical education. The MSIT program, for example, provides students with the opportunity to use networking technology for higher education, and the Master's level teaching program in Information Systems has introduced new trends in the field. The government's efforts have also been reflected in the increased ratio of engineering and polytechnic seats in the state, during 2000 stands at a 3:1 ratio, compared to the 1:2 ratio in 1995.
The former honourable Chief Minister Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu’s Government has made significant TDP contributions to the department of technical and vocational education in Andhra Pradesh.
