Students wanting to enter into one of most prestigious College “Delhi College of Engineering” can breathe easy.

The DCE is all set to be upgraded into a state university; also seats will be increased for its undergraduate and post-graduate courses.

The Delhi government passed the Delhi Technological University Bill on Wednesday, 1st July, 2009 in the legislative assembly to turn the college rated among the top ten engineering college of the country into a state university.

The DCE to be called Delhi Technological University – plans to double the number of seats for the undergraduate course in the next 2 years.

From the current number of 670, the seats will go up to 1,450 by 2011-12 sessions.

Since the institution has 85 per cent reservation for Delhi students, more seats mean that fewer Delhi students will have to go to other states for studying engineering now.

From the current Academic session beginning August, 2009, the university will offer new courses and add 48 new seats – 240 seats in their B.Tech programme, 168 in post-graduation and 50 for PhD fellows.
