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] Delhi College of Engineering, (initially established with the name – Delhi Polytechnic) came into existence in the year 1941 to cater the needs of Indian industries for trained technical manpower with practical experience and sound theoretical knowledge. The institution was set up at historic Kashmere Gate campus Dce shares its campus with the Institute known as Delhi Institute of Technology (DIT) now Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT) at kashmiri gate campus now shifted to dwarka. as a follow up of the Wood and Abott Committee of 1938. It was a multi disciplinary and multi level institution offering wide ranging programmes in engineering, technology, arts and sculpture, architecture, pharmacy and commerce. The national diploma awarded by the institution was recognized as equivalent to degree level for the purposes of employment. In 1952 the college was affiliated with University of Delhi and started formal Degree level Programmes. The department of Architecture later became the School of Planning and Architecture, now a Deemed University and Institution of National importance. The department of Arts and Sculpture became College of Arts and the departments of Chemical Technology and Textile Technology were shifted out en-block to mark beginning of the IIT Delhi at its new campus at Hauz Khas. The department of commerce was later abolished and the faculty of management studies of the University of Delhi was established by Prof. A. Das Gupta, of DCE. Delhi College of Engineering is thus the mother institution of a number of national projects including Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi, College of Art, Delhi and even the famous Faculty of Management Studies.[3] Subsequently, Bachelor of Engineering courses in Civil, Electrical, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering were started. Delhi Assembly passed a bill on 1 July 2009 paving way for upgradation of Delhi College of Engineering to Delhi Technological University. New BE programmes in software engineering, automobile engineering, electrical and electronics engineering and engineering physics 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.[4] 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 developmen

BIOTECHNOLOGY, batch of 2017 6/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The program that I am studying at the university is bachelors of technology in BIOTECHNOLOGY. Frankly speaking, the course would be primarily of interest for those who have studied biology in grade 11 and 12 since biotechnology is a lot about biology (as its name suggests :-p). For students who hate biology, i would suggest them to not opt for this branch. I loved biology and hence opted for this course. The coursework has been nicely divided into various segments and aims to cover almost every topic associated with biology in our 3 year long course. The first year is common to all stude...
