The purpose of this paper is to investigate and develop the Criterions of TQM implementation for engineering education in Indian scenario. This paper provides a survey carried out using the Delphi methodology, triangulated with the results of other surveys carried out previously, as well as with the information gathered by means of several in-depth interviews carried out with the experts that participated in the Delphi-panel. Total thirteen guiding criterions of TQM implementation for engineering education were obtained through discussion with decision team of 26 members which consisted of authors, students, lecturers, professors, director/principal, management, parents and industrialist. The research in this paper is limited to Indian scenario; studies in other countries should be conducted to compare the results obtained. Identification of the TQM implementation and Performance criteria and sub-criteria will help in formulation of TQM model for implementation of TQM practices in engineering education sector. The paper shows how the classical Delphi technique can be successfully used to investigate and develop the criterions of TQM implementation for engineering education.
