Delhi Technological University (DTU), (Hindi: दिल्ली प्रौद्योगिकी विश्वविद्यालय) formerly known as Delhi College of Engineering is a premier government University located in New Delhi,India.It was established in 1941 as Delhi Polytechnic, and was under the control of the Government of India.. The college has been under the government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi since 1963 and has been affiliated to the University of Delhi since 1952.[1]

It offers courses towards Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.), Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech), Master of Engineering (M.E.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A) and contains 12 academic departments with a strong emphasis on scientific and technological education and research.



Established as Delhi Polytechnic in 1941, the technical school was created to cater to the demands of Indian industries. At that time the Delhi Polytechnic offered courses in Arts, Architecture, Commerce, Engineering, Applied Science and Textiles. The National Diploma awarded by the Delhi Polytechnic was considered equivalent to B.E. Degree by the then UPSC.

In 1962, after the administration of Delhi Polytechnic was taken over from Ministry of Education, India, to Delhi State, it was renamed as "Delhi College of Engineering" in 1965. Thence various departments offering courses in different disciplines separated to form institutes addressing specific areas. The Department of Arts became College of Arts and the Department of Commerce and Business Administration further divided into several institutes of Commerce and Secretarial Practices.[2]

Subsequently, Bachelor of Engineering courses in Civil, Electrical, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering were started. Delhi Assembly passed a Bill on July 1, 2009 paving way for upgradation of Delhi College of Engineering to Delhi Technological University. New BE programmes in software engineering, automotive engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, engineering physics, aerospace engineering, medical engineering and nuclear science and engineering are introduced. Courses on bio-technology, nano-technology, bio-informatics, computational mathematics and MBA in knowledge and technology management and information systems management also introduced.[3]

Highlights of the last two decades have been the introduction of the CEE Entrance test, moving of the campus to a large 164 acres (0.7 km2) near Bawana Road in Northern Delhi, and a shift of focus of students and faculty towards research and development[4]

Delhi Technological University

DCE was converted to a state university in 2009 and has been rechristened Delhi Technological University. Prof. P.B. Sharma was nominated as the university's first Vice Chancellor.


Computer Center, Placement Block and Science Block

Delhi College of Engineering operated from the Kashmere gate campus in the heart of Old Delhi until 1989, when construction began at the New Campus at Bawana Road in May. Moving of operations from Kashmere Gate to Bawana Road began in 1995, and the new campus formally started instruction for all four years of study starting 1999.

The new campus is a lush green campus well connected by road.[5] Facilities include a library, a computer center, a sports complex, eight boys' hostels, three girls' hostels, and a married couples' hostel. The campus has residential facilities for faculty and staff. The campus has an auditorium.


The admission towards a full-time Bachelor of Engineering degree in Delhi College of Engineering and Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology is through the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education. Out of the total 1218 seats, 85% are reserved for students who pass from high schools in the National Capital Territory of Delhi or Delhi region. The remaining 15% seats are for candidates from outside Delhi region and are admitted on the basis of All India merit Rank in AIEEE[6]

Admission towards a postgraduate degree at the Delhi College of Engineering is based on performance in the GATE qualifying exam, followed by an interview.


Library building

Courses are offered towards Bachelor of Engineering (B.E.), Bachelor of Technology (Part-time), Master of Engineering (M.E.), Master of Science (M.Sc.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) and Master of Business Administration (M.B.A). Core engineering courses are in Computer Science, Electronics and Communication, Information Technology, Mathematics and Computing, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Civil Engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering degree is also granted in Production and Industrial Engineering, Engineering Physics, Biotechnology, Environmental Engineering, Polymer Science and Chemical Technology.

Courses in Nanotechnology, Optical Communications, and Software Engineering are part of the college's focus on industry specific research.[7] The college has been ranked among the top ten engineering colleges in recent and past national surveys organized by the India Today magazine. The survey ranks DCE at 12 with sister college NSIT following at 19. Another survey by Dataquest in 2005 ranked DCE among top 20 engineering institutes in the nation and a survey by outlook in 2011 ranked DTU at 8.[8][9][10]


Students participate in projects such as design and development of a Formula SAE car, SAE Mini Baja,[11] Hybrid Car, solar car,[12] unmanned aerial vehicles,[13]innovative embedded devices appreciated worldwide[14][15][16] and setting up a plant for manufacturing Biodiesel.[17]Pioneered by the Defianz Racing team participating in the Formula Student competition, many student teams collaborate with universities[1] from other countries and actively participate in international and national competitions.[18][19][20]The college also came up with the development of a Personalised Mover - Mitra,[21]. Delhi College of Engineering is one of the TIFAC COREs (Technology Information, Forecasting & Assessment Council's Centres Of Relevance & Excellence) in Fiber Optics and Optical Communication. Also, Students of Delhi College of Engineering have made it top-15 Worldwide slots in the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2007 and 2008[14][15][22][23]

The campus at DCE has been proposed as one of the sites for the Delhi Government's plan of creating Delhi a Research and IT hub.[24] A Knowledge Park at DTU has been set up as part of better infrastructure for Delhi.[25]

DCE had been selected by Intel Technology Pvt. Ltd. to join Planet Lab Consortium that has the world's top universities and industrial research labs like Princeton University, University of Washington and NEC Labs as its members.[25]

Scholarships and awards

Scholarships are available for students beginning their first year at College that are awarded on the basis of their performance in subjects.[1] Another award is given to two final year students on the basis of merit, sponsoring their tuition for the purpose of pursuing MBA at the Raj Soin College of Business, Wright State University.[1]
