Domain certifications are helpful for those who wish to become job-ready or specialize in an area of study. As of July 2021, NPTEL has 51 domains across 12 disciplines.
NPTEL Stars is an initiative to recognize the efforts of those learners who keep coming back repeatedly to NPTEL courses and completing exams. Learners can take up more than one-course exam in NPTEL. NPTEL has identified 7 categories into which these Stars can be classified:
- NPTEL Domain Scholar
