Any educational effort may deliver its goods only if designed and implemented with care & clockwork precision. Further to maintain its validity, it need be monitored closely & continuously and evaluated thoroughly in all its aspects with precise instruments, concertedly. Thereby clearly implying that any educational program specially the one dealing with definite sciences such as Engineering must be handled with care, if it to be of any use at all to those who are taking it. This paper describes how the State Board of Technical Education, State of Maharashtra, India indulged in a series of meetings, deliberations, workshops, tasks etc., to bring up a highly coordinated internally synchronized and harmoniously built curricula for the Diploma Level Engineering courses run in the Polytechnics. The purpose of CIAAN (2004) was to enhance the effectiveness of Curriculum Implementation, Assessment of Students’ learning performance and ensuring the outcomes of the curricula. It was designed to ensure the alignment of process of curriculum implementation to the preconceived goals on one hand and to the outcomes on the other. The CIAAN 2004 was designed completely in line with the principles envisioned in the CDIO 2003. It employed the systems approach, scientific methodology. The tools & mechanisms to operate at the macro and the micro level were developed in an hierarchical manner. The CIAAN has been fully implemented statewide in all its 350 polytechnic institutions that were monitored regularly through the internal & external committees, & through periodic reviews taken and documented at the regional as well as state level. The overall functioning of the institutions has been found to be benefited & enhanced after the employment of CIAAN system.
