Delhi Technological University introduces new programs offering various entry and exit points.


The curriculum of the upcoming programs covers a wide variety of subjects, namely: Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Data Science, Machine Learning, Cyber Security, Disaster Management, and Sustainable Energy Solutions

Along with placement opportunities, the university has also engaged its alumni network for infrastructure development, establishing fellowships, sponsoring chair positions, creating centres of excellence, initiating endowments, and supporting start-ups.

New undergraduate programs with flexible entry and exit options from Delhi Technological University, envisaged from the academic session 2024-2025, has not come a day too early. Simultaneously, a newMTech by Research is planned, in the context of the 2020NEP, so that flexible entry and multiple exit options can be provided during the defined period. In a positive step towards development, DTU has also launched integrated BSc and MSc programs in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biotechnology, and Economics. The commencement of MTech by Research aims to up-scale the research metrics at the institute to a level where it is an inverse of the established MTech programs, emphasizing two-thirds on research and one-third in term coursework. Admission to this course will be through GATE, which offers a student a more effective and quick way to pursue a PhD or to take an informed decision about his or her academic life.

VC Prateek Sharma said that the introduction of a prolonged MTech by Research program is likely to make employment in consultancy and research organizations more attractive and hence reduce the significant probability of transition to the managerial domain that many engineers face. He further pointed out that the syllabi of the new courses are completely aligned with the principles of the NEP and the guidelines of the University Grants Commission (UGC) for the FYUP, focusing on new subjects like AI, blockchain, data science, machine learning, cyber security, disaster management, clean and green energy.

This new program introduces changes that do not immediately require expansion of the faculty, since established faculty members within the current departments will teach newly offered courses. For the future, the university is open to additional recruitment. Further than this, DTU is also working at opening institutions in other places and has recently initiated talks with some of its alumni in the Middle East regarding potential centers there. The institution is also partnering with industries, like Samsung, in a manner where this institution becomes the R&D arm of DTU, providing necessary services in research and development to such institutions.

Further, DTU has established five centers for excellence and research: Centre of Excellence in Energy Transition, Centre of Executive Education, Centre of Excellence in Utilization of Drone Technology, Centre of Excellence in Disaster Risk Reduction, and the Centre for Community Development and Research.
