DU has a unique BTech program

For admission, you have to clear an entrance test

According to Gurpreet Singh Tuteja, deputy dean of students' welfare, the course admits 40 students annually, but receives over 200 applications each year. To appear the entrance exam, you need 60% in your 'best of four' subjects, which compulsorily include mathematics. This year, the exam is on June 21.


Projects, internships and more are graded

The course is significantly different than most BTech programs, says Dr HP Singh, Director, CIC. For one, the evaluation method here gives 60% weightage to hands-on learning - individual projects, semester-long projects, internships and more.

The eighth semester covers a six-month internship.

All such projects are graded to "incentivize independent study and excite students about things they study in theory," explains Shobha Bagai, Program Coordinator.

The choice of subjects is interesting too!

The papers are also interesting and unique. There are subjects like 'environmental consciousness,' 'art of communication,' 'creative writing' and 'science, philosophy, truth.'

"Students have the option to pick a mentor from outside their institution as well," said Bagai.

In addition to the major papers, students can pick one from three substreams- electronics & embedded systems, system biology, and economics & management- as a minor.
