Delhi Technological University (DTU 2011), formerly known as Delhi College of Engineering (DCE), is planning to introduce online admission from this year. The university is also introducing a new BTech programme from the 2011-2012 session. The admission process is scheduled to start by May-end after the declaration of the All India Engineering Entrance Examination results.
The online procedure will save the students the trouble of coming all the way to the university or sending the applications via post. BTech aspirants of DTU 2011 can now not only access all admission details online, but also submit it. Moreover, according to DTU officials, while any mistakes in the hard copy cannot be changed once submitted, in the online application a candidate can correct the mistakes before the last date of submission.
According to vice chancellor of DTU 2011, P B Sharma, “We are finalizing our plans for making the admission process online. This will benefit those students who are from far off places and will also do away with tensions of misplacement of forms posted to us. The students will be able to submit their completed application forms online along with their choices(branch). We have14 branches of engineering.’’
“Once the forms are submitted, the students will not be able to change their choice of course. However, in case of any other mistake like phone numbers, addresses, etc, the students can correct them, but only before the last date for submission,” added Sharma.
According to DTU 2011 sources, the university will completely do away with manual submission process for the B Tech programmes from this year with this new move of theirs. The cost of the forms is likely to remain at Rs 1,000 and payment can be made by using debit or credit cards as well.
The university is also introducing a BTech programme in mathematics and computing from the forthcoming academic session. “We will be admitting 60 students for this programme and this will take our overall intake beyond 1,200 this year in undergraduate studies. At present, we admit 1,127 students and one girl child in each department over and above the regular intake,” said Sharma.
