From the Desk of the Vice-Chancellor,DTU
Marching from strength to strength, Delhi College of Engineering (DCE) is nowthe “Delhi Technological University” (DTU). The historic decision to upgrade DCE intoDTU was taken by the Government of Delhi about two years ago and an Act to thiseffect has been enacted by the Delhi Vidhan Sabha in July 2009. The upgradation of DCE into a technical university provided the necessary academic and administrativeautonomy to empower DCE to march on the path of academic and research excellence,as also to accelerate the pace of innovations. The conferment of the status of atechnological University upon DCE is a major opportunity for all of us in meeting therequirement of highly skilled brainpower for the industries and enterprises in the NewKnowledge Age. Further, the output of DTU in respect of research and innovation isexpected to impact new knowledge creation and development of new technologies andcommodities.DTU, with the brand image of DCE and its glorious past, is poised to create newhorizons in the arena of technical education and research in the country. With theupgradation of DCE into DTU, we have now a much greater responsibility and certainlya greater accountability along side with freedom to excel and serve the interest of thetalented community, industry and the society. It is also an opportunity to provide anupdated and innovated curriculum at par with the best technological universities of theworld and emulate the best practices in technical education. As per the DTU Act, Delhi Act 6 of 2009, DTU is a non-affiliating, teaching andresearch University focusing on “growth with quality”, offering new programs inemerging areas of engineering and technology, ensuring synergy between science andengineering, which will attract the very best and qualified faculty in its fold andcontribute effectively to cutting edge technology development and foster world classinnovations.
“DTU thus aspires to be a leading World Class Technolog
University, a key node in National and Global Knowledge Network, empowering India with theWings of Knowledge and Power of Innovations”.
Expansion of Educational and Research Opportunities:
Soon after becoming a Technological University, 04 new B.Tech and 08 newM.Tech programs in the emerging areas of Science and Technology were added from2009-10 to meet the growing demand of quality manpower for the industries. In addition,a School of Management was established in DTU to cater for MBA program in the areasof Knowledge and Innovation Management, Supply Chain Management and Info-System Management. The focus of DTU is on the synergy between science andengineering. To meet this objective, a B.Tech Course on Engineering Physics wasstarted from 2009-10 academic session so as to provide quality manpower fotomorrow’s Material Science, Nano-Science and Technology and tomorrow’sCommunication Technologies. Likewise, to strengthen the Mathematical Foundation for tomorrow’s Informatics and Future Computing a new B.Tech program in “Mathematicsand Computing” is being added from this academic session 2011-12.50 Ph.D scholarships and 25 Teaching-cum-Research Fellowships are beingoffered to strengthen the academic and research environment in DTU.
