The discipline-wise/specialisation-wise break up of the intake to the


first year of various undergraduate and postgraduate programmes is
given in Appendix VII.
The undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of teaching and
research are supervised, on behalf of the Senate, by Board of
Undergraduate Studies and Board of Postgraduates Studies &
Research, respectively. An Academic Interaction Council comprising
elected student representatives and nominated faculty provides
feedback to the Board of Undergraduate Studies in all academic
matters pertaining to undergraduate students.
In order to update the syllabi and modernize the instructional
infrastructure and improve methods/facilities, the following measures
were undertaken during the year under review:
REVIEW OF EXISTING U.G./P.G. PROGRAMMES
A comprehensive review of the B.Tech. curriculum of the Institute
was initiated in December 1999 with the appointment of a Curriculum
Review Committee (CRC). The CRC took stock of the current programme
and its weaknesses were identified. The basic principles in designing
curricula, keeping the aims and objectives of U.G. education were kept
in view. The basic framework of the revised U.G. programme has since
26

been adopted and it places high emphasis on flexibility, self-learning,


motivation, industrial interaction, exposure to emerging areas and
identification with the national aspirations. The programme has been
designed to have (i) a more restricted core content with greater
flexibility, being provided to the student as he/she chooses courses, (ii)
less lectures and more tutorials, practical and project work, (iii) laboratory
practicals forming separate courses which are de-linked from theory
courses, (iv) a compulsory course in emerging sciences and
technologies.
Apart from these structural changes, there will be more emphasis on
fundamentals in the courses and in the programmes, creative thoughts,
design, solution of open-ended problems, communication skills and to
provide necessary inputs to ensure identification with Indian realities
and goals of nation building.
The nature of the courses and their contents have been redesigned
so that they are consistent with the philosophy and basic premises of
the new curriculum. The new undergraduate curriculum has come into
effect commencing with the 2003 entry students. The complete course
structures, course contents and scheduling have been made effective
from the academic year 2003-2004.
U.G. PROGRAMMES
During the year under report the revised UG Curriculum has nearly
come to full steam with 3 batches underway. Apart from making the
courses available as per the new curriculum, some minor area programs
have also been formulated. These are as follows:
z

Computer Science & Engineering.

Computational Mechanics.

Biochemical Engineering and Biotechnology.

Process Engineering.

Business Management.

Energy Technology.

System Dynamics and Control.

Nano Science and Engineering.

Photonics.

Each minor area is defined in terms of some core courses and a list
of electives. A student needs to do 20 credits out of these courses to
earn a minor area qualification.
In order to improve the teaching infrastructure, construction of two
new lecture theatres with a capacity of 150 each has been initiated. It is
proposed to equip both these with the state-of-the-art audio visual
facilities. With increase in the student strength in the recent years, the
class sizes have become larger and the shortage of large class room has
been felt acutely. These two new lecture theatres will provide some relief
regarding this shortage.
Due to increased student strength in the last few years, several
initiatives have also been taken to allow for smooth functioning of
classes. This has been done in some cases by splitting the large classes
in first year into 2 groups of morning and evening sessions. While one
group has lectures in the morning and labs in the afternoons, the other
group has lab classes in the morning and lectures in the afternoons.
P.G. PROGRAMMES
To meet the societal needs, a number of new elective courses have
been introduced by the Departments/Centres. Besides, all M. Tech.
programmes had been thoroughly revised and implemented w.e.f.
academic session 2003-2004.
M.B.A. PROGRAMMES
The Department of Management Studies at the Institute has introduced
two MBA programmes starting from July 1997. The full-time MBA
programme is focused on "Management Systems and Tele- Communication
Systems Management" and is designed to be completed in two years.
SCHOLARSHIPS/ASSISTANTSHIPS AND AWARDS
Undergraduate Scholarships
A number of cash prizes and merit-cum-means scholarships are
awarded by the Institute annually to undergraduate students. The
value of each scholarship has now been revised to Rs. 1000 per month.
For SC/ST students, there is now a provision of free messing (basic
menu) plus a pocket allowance of Rs. 250/- per month in lieu of the
merit-cum-means scholarships. Such students are also exempted
from payment of room rent. The scholarship also provides for tuition fee
waiver for the session for all such students. The proposal for this

revision was initiated by IIT Delhi Cash prizes of the value of Rs. 2500/
- each are awarded to the top 7% of the students in each semester.

ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
Academic performance of both undergraduate and postgraduate
students is analysed and synthesised every academic year by the
respective Academic Boards in order to obtain useful data on the
general performance of the students. Such a feedback is an essential
input to enable the Senate to reflect on the effectiveness of the
teaching-learning process being pursued at the Institute.
The overall distribution of C.G.P.A. year-wise for each of the two
academic semesters for the final year of the undergraduate programmes
is indicated in Table 1 (Appendix IX). Number of students who graduated

of establishing this rapport is to ensure that students were given


adequate technical exposure/industrial training during their pre-final
year and subsequently may get employment in organisations which
matched with their aspirations and objectives.
The literature of companies such as annual reports, technical
brochures, publicity material and functional requirements for fresh
graduates are made available to students in the Reference Library
being maintained in Training & Placement Office. The objective of this
Library is to enable students to appreciate the nature of working of
various industries which will ultimately be visiting the campus for
placement purposes. However, with a large amount of information
available on internet, the tendency of students to read hard copies of
literature has reduced. Infact major change this year was implementation
of the web based placement services using internal ACSS server. The
students got all information on their desktop PCs, applied on-line and
could see the progress of their application including the final results.
The student committees at the central level as well as Nucleus
Committees at department level actively participated in the Training &
Placement activities.
Relevant data on various industrial and technical organisations was
collated, sifted and compiled. The analysis of the past training and
placement activities was presented to the students to help them decide
their future course of action. Constant liaison with industries was
maintained throughout the year to ensure that the students not only got
a job but also a place where their talent could be exploited.
This office also organised pre-placement and career counselling
talks by distinguished persons from reputed technical, industrial,
management and research organisations for the benefit of the graduate
and postgraduate students. Some of the Institute alumni who are
holding very senior positions in private and public sector organisations
were also invited to share their personal experience with students
community of the Institute.
Training

TRAINING AND PLACEMENT (T&P)


As in the past, the Training and Placement Unit continued to plan,
organise and consolidate the Training and Placement activities for
students. It actively interacted with various industrial, technical,
management and research organisations in the country. The dual aim
28

A personal dialogue by Professor-in-Charge, T&P, with top


executives of a large number of industries resulted in better
understanding of their functional requirements and training activities.
This effort also helped the T&P Unit in the effective planning of summer
vacation training for pre-final year B.Tech./Dual Degree/ Integrated

M.Tech. students besides obtaining a good number of stipends and


other facilities such as transport, accommodation etc. Quite a few
industries giving excellent training and stipends were invited to interview
and select the students prior to their training with a view to place them
in the organisations at an opportune time.
Official communication was addressed to 457 selected organisations.
The T&P unit not only got all its requirements by the end of April, 2007
as planned but also got 38 stipends and 27 other facilities. Detailed
instructions to students were also issued prior to the commencement
of the training programme. A gist of data regarding the pre-final year
students training is given in Appendix X (Table-1).

industries were also invited to the campus to give pre-placement talks.


This vigorous drive resulted in requisitions being obtained from 275
industries. Updated record of emoluments offered by various industries
available with T&P office helped some other organisations in the
revision of their pay scales. Ground rules for placement evolved in
consultation with the students and faculty members led to a just and
equitable distribution of job opportunities amongst the student
community. Placement data is given below:

Research and Development Activities


This chapter is divided into two parts, one part dealing with academic
research activities mainly at the Ph.D. level and the other part dealing
with Industrial R&D, Consultancy, Interaction with Industry and
Technology Transfer, etc.
ACADEMIC RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
Starting with undergraduate programme in the initial phase of its
development, the Institute established a number of postgraduate
teaching programmes in the second phase and then set out to expand
and consolidate its research activities. Besides, the academic research
carried out by the students for the Ph.D. degree, the final semester
major project included in the four-year B.Tech. programme, the fiveyear integrated M.Tech. programmes, and the four-semester M.Tech./
M.S.(R)/M.Des. programmes make a significant contribution to the
research output.

The principal source of academic research, however, continues to


be through Ph.D. research projects. With a total of 991 students
enrolled for a research degree during the year under review (department/
centre-wise break-up of the students as on December 31, 2006 is given

FOUNDATION FOR INNOVATION AND TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER


(FITT)
Foundation for Innovation and Technology Transfer (FITT) was
established by the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi with the mandate
for organizing a wide range of services for the industry to promote,
support and supplement Institute programmes to facilitate the process
of technology development and transfer to market place. Promoted by

the Ministry of HRD, Govt. of India with seed money support, FITT has
been functioning as an effective industry-academia interface unit in the
Institute for more than 14 years now. FITT has, over the years,
emerged as a distinct knowledge transfer institution.
During the year 2006-07, FITT licensed five technologies (for a
consideration of Rs.48.20 lakh along with annual royalty) besides
contracting 40 research based/technology development projects at a
gross value of Rs.277.39 lakh. In aiding dissemination of scientific and
technology knowledge, FITT organized 15 HRD programmes during
the year at a gross value of Rs.57.56 lakh. FITT has also been assisting
the Institute in management of intellectual properties resulting from
academic/industrial/sponsored research in the Institute. FITT assisted
in short-listing 21 patent applications for registration out of 31 proposals
considered during the year.
In exploring an alternate route for technology transfer, FITT assisted
the Institute in establishing a Technology Business Incubation Unit
(TBIU) within the campus. Besides a vehicle for technology transfer,
the TBI aims to promote entrepreneurships amongst the graduating
students. Groups of graduating students along with their faculty
supervisors (during UG/PG/Ph.D programmes) are being encouraged
to venture into technopreneurship. The start-up companies promoted
by enthusiastic student/faculty group are nurtured with early stage
seed funding by FITT. The TBI has admitted 19 start-up units/companies
since its inception in the year 2000.
Eight companies are presently progressing at various stages of
incubation in TBIU. Each of these involve IITD faculty as promoter/
director/mentor. Out of 11 companies which made their exit after
having been incubated in TBIU, (i) 5 companies (4 are faculty/students
promoted) have relocated post-incubation commercial operations
outside the Institute, (ii) 4 companies have short-closed the incubation
(primarily for failure to achieve cost-effective product / service and/or
a market) while (iii) 2 companies have shifted the incubation activities
outside Delhi The incubation mode of technology commercialization
/ transfer in the Institute has ushered in much enthusiasm amongst the
student communities towards entrepreneurship to be job provider
rather than a job seeker.

The Indian National Digital Library in Engineering Sciences and
Technology (INDEST) Consortium was set-up by the Ministry of
Human Resource Development (MHRD) on the recommendation of an
Expert Group appointed by the Ministry. 38 centrally-funded Government
institutions including IITs, IISc Bangalore, NITs , IIITs and IIMs are core
members of the INDEST Consortium. The Ministry provides funds
required for providing differential access to electronic resources
subscribed for the Consortium to the core members through the
Consortium Headquarters set-up at the IIT Delhi. The Consortium was
re-named as INDEST-AICTE Consortium in December 2005 with the
AICTE playing pivotal role in enrolling its affiliated engineering colleges
and institutions as members of the Consortium for selected e-resources
at much lower rates of subscription.

Maintenance problems of hostels and the institute, the no dues process
for students, library and computer related issues, as well as safety and
security issues were also resolved . Openness in the decision making
process of various boards and improvements in the student election
process were other matters that were discussed. Another important issue
that was raised at SAC was the need for improved student teacher
interaction. A student Mentorship Programme to provide consulling of first

Engineer and engineering staff were held. For proper implementation
of maintenance schedules, long-term and short-term problems
were identified and engineering staff visits to each hostel for
monitoring work. Special efforts were made towards the cleaning of
common areas.
Security problems in each hostel were reviewed and detail discussion
with the wardens, students and security personnels was held.
Considerable efforts were made for providing accommodation to all
students. Some of them were temporarily accommodated in Nalanda,
Indraprastha and New Vindhyachal Apartments.
Continuing dialogue between the mess staff, student representatives
and authorities has resulted in better work environment. Eight BHM
employees were rewarded by special awards for the hard work and
excellent services rendered to the Organization. This Award was given

BHM also arranged the stay and messing for all the delegates of
Rendezvous 2006 and TRYST 2007 events very successfully.
To simplify the recovery of dues from students, a regular monitoring
system has been introduced involving simplified system of payment, by
which the students sign a declaration form and the amount is

automatically deducted from their bank account, avoiding any personal


bank transaction on this account. Use of computers for maintenance of
hostel accounts has been in existence from past six years and the staff
working in the hostels was encouraged to undergo training in the use
of PCs.

every hostel was in the forefront in initiating and hosting the celebration
on the independence Day and the Republic Day functions at the
Institute level.
Hostel Mess Secretaries put in considerable efforts in controlling
food wastage and thus were able to keep a check and balance of
galloping mess bills. By proper coordination between the students and
the wardens, the supply system was improved and new supplies were
identified and added.
There were surprise checks by canteen cells for institute canteens.
Manopoly of supplies has been reduced by attaching 2-3 suppliers to
each hostel.
