HistoryEdit

Delhi PolytechnicEdit

The Delhi Polytechnic was visioned as a follow up of the Wood and Abbott Committee of 1938. It was established as Delhi Polytechnic in 1941. The technical school was created to cater to the demands of Indian industries. At that time, Delhi Polytechnic offered courses in Arts, Architecture, Commerce, Engineering, Applied Science and Textiles. Walter William Wood, became the founder Principal of Delhi Polytechnic. It became Delhi's first engineering college and was amongst the few engineering institutions in India set up prior to independence.[2][3][better source needed]

The National Diploma awarded by Delhi Polytechnic was considered an equivalent to the B.E. Degree by the then UPSC. The college was affiliated with the University of Delhi in 1952 and started formal degree level programmes.[2]

Delhi College of EngineeringEdit

Up till 1962, the college was under the direct control of the Ministry of Education, Government of India. Since 1963, Delhi Polytechnic was taken over by the then Delhi Administration and Chief Commissioner Delhi was the ex-officio chairman of the college. It later became a college of the Union Territory of Delhi. In 1963, Department of Arts became the College of Arts and Department of Commerce & Business Administration was converted to several institutes of Commerce & Secretarial Practices. Fragmentation of Delhi Polytechnic ultimately left behind an engineering institute alone. In 1962, the college was affiliated with University of Delhi. In 1965, the Delhi Polytechnic was renamed as Delhi College of Engineering and became the first engineering college of Delhi, Now it is called Delhi technological university.

B.E. degree course in Production & Industrial Engineering was started in 1988 while B.E. degree course in Computer Engineering was started in 1989. B.E. degree level courses were started in Polymer Science & Chemical Technology and Environment Engineering in 1998. Information technology played a vital role during this era and the beginning of new millennium witnessed the introduction of B.E. in Information Technology in 2002. B.E. in Bio-Technology was introduced from the academic session 2004-2005.[4]

The Department of Architecture of the Delhi College of Engineering 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 the 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 Administration established Delhi Institute of Technology (Presently Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology) in 1985 and the new college was established under the patronage of Delhi College of Engineering. DCE shared its campus with NSIT at Kashmiri Gate campus, although later, NSIT was shifted to Dwarka as a follow-up of the Wood and Abott Committee of 1938. Delhi College of Engineering is thus the mother institution of a number of national institutes including Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology, School of Planning and Architecture, Delhi, College of Art, Delhi and Faculty of Management Studies.[5]

DCE-DTU Reconstitution and related protests in 2009-10Edit

In July 2009, Delhi College of Engineering was downgraded to a state university from being a college under a central university and renamed Delhi Technological University (DTU), through the Delhi Technological University Bill, 2009.[6] P. B. Sharma was nominated as the university's first Vice-Chancellor.[7] The move was met with student protests over the erosion of the DCE brand (due to being downgraded from being part of a central university to a state university) and the reduction in the supposed value of their degree. [8] which culminated to a face-off in March 2010, with the students boycotting the mid-semester exams,[9] and demanding reconsideration of the change and replacement of the VC.[10] However, the Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dikshit informed the students that the change will not be reconsidered,[11] and by the end of March the protest dwindled down, with the students taking their exams.[12] In April 2010 Times City reported that the government will be willing to change the name to "DCE Technological University" (DCE TU),[13] however, as of June 2018 the university name remains unchanged till date.

CampusesEdit

2019-20 Online End Term Examination ProtestsEdit

DTU saw online protests in June-July 2020 amid the decision of the administration to conduct AI proctored online end term examination amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.[64] The protests saw #cancelDTUexams trend on Twitter for over 2 weeks with articles in media outlets Education Times(TOI),Navbharat Times,Hindustan,India TV,Careers 360. [65] Students also came out with online petitions to voice their concerns.[66]

Students have sighted that[clarification needed] conducting exams of intermediate semesters is a clear violation of UGC guidelines. Other reasons sighted by students are lack of resources(laptop, internet connection), incomplete syllabus after lock down, internships & skill development courses, mental stress (many haven't even stepped out of their house for months now due to COVID-19), online exams not being conducted by top engineering institutes like IITs, for cancellation of exams. [67] Students also claim that when the university already has the result of past semesters, internal assessment, mid term examination then why can't a provisional result be declared on that basis and those who aren't satisfied can appear later. The credibility of online examinations is debatable, students claimed.[68]

As per an article in Navbharat Times, The Vice Chancellor of DTU Prof Yogesh Singh claimed that if students make up their mind for the exam they will provide them with all resources.This claim was further disputed by the students who said that the university wasn't actually providing them with any resources upon being approached & was rather asking them to come to the Campus and appear for the exams which isn't at all feasible seeing the rising no. of COVID-19 cases in the capital.[69]

The Controller of Examination has claimed to the Education Times that Majority of Students want to appear in the online examination, a claim which further fueled the protests as students claimed that it was completely baseless.[70]

The protests finally ended on 11 July 2020 with the press release of the Deputy CM cancelling all exams in State Universities of Delhi.[71]

On 14 July 2020,more than 3 days after the press release of the Govt of NCT of Delhi, the DTU administration finally released the official notification confirming the cancellation. Even this delay in the official notice lead to student outrage on social media for the mentioned time period.[72][73]

2020 Annual Fee ProtestsEdit

The DTU administration released a notice dated 24 July 2020 via the official site on 30 July 2020 demanding a hefty annual fees of INR 1,90,000 to be paid just within 5 days. The notice has a punitive clause that after 5 August students will have to bear hefty fines and after 27 August their names may be struck off from the university records. [74]

The move has seen massive student protests with widespread national media coverage. Students sighted that for the last 4 months they haven’t utilized any of the college infrastructure like Library, Computer Center, Lab Infrastructure and other campus amenities and the next session being online will not utilize the same due to the ongoing pandemic of Covid-19. DTU being primarily an undergraduate institute with more than 80% students pursuing UG courses like B.Tech and majority of students coming from humble backgrounds, it is almost impossible for them to pay such a hefty fees right now within 5 day of which three are bank holidays, especially due to the adverse effects the pandemic has had on their economic condition. The Fee Structure of INR 1,90,000 of B.Tech course has more than 40% charges on Miscellaneous Heads in the name of facilities and services which the students aren’t utilizing. Hence, the students are being asked to pay for something they haven’t availed. The Govt of NCT of Delhi passed an order on 15 April 2020 asking schools be it govt or private in the capital to only charge tuition fees. Then why is the same not applicable on higher education govt institutes like DTU. The protests saw #dtufeesrelaxation trend on Twitter for a week. [75][76][77][78]

Anoop Lather, Public Relations Officer of DTU in a statement to The Indian Express on 1 August said that the expenses of the university remain the same as they were prior to the pandemic and students who have problems in paying can submit an application which shall be considered on the case-to-case basis. The statement further received backlash from the students who said that the university administration wasn't responding to any of their emails and letters for concession and payment in installments and further it would be insane to suggest that the expenses of the university functioning via free online platforms like Google Meet could remain the same as before. Students also claimed that many other government institutes like IIT Kharagpur and NIT Patna had already given concession to students on miscellaneous heads and moreover, none were demanding a one time annual fee payment. [79][80]

After getting no positive response from the Govt of NCT of Delhi and the university administration by the fee payment deadline of 5 August, the students wrote an open letter to LG of Delhi Anil Baijal who is also the Chancellor of the university on 6 August 2020 asking him to take action against the Vice Chancellor of DTU Prof Yogesh Singh for displaying yet again an absolutely apathetic attitude towards the concerns of students and their families who are already under severe economic and mental stress amid the pandemic. They also alleged that the university administration intimidated some Class Representatives via the Office of the Vice Chancellor to either pay the fee or face disciplinary action. NSUI also wrote to the LG asking him to take back the annual fee notice.[81] [82] On 7 August, some students organized a protest march in the DTU campus. Protesters claimed that no one from DTU administration met them on the given day. TOI claimed that the university didn't respond to any of its calls on the same day.[83] [84]

Students also claimed that the university was using Training and Placement Dept to intimidate them by asking to pay their fees immediately, or else they won’t be allowed to sit for placements for the year 2020-2021 [85][76]

On 8 August, some students met BJP Delhi president Adesh Kumar Gupta who then wrote to the CM Arvind Kejriwal asking him to intervene in the matter on the request of the students. [86][87]

As of 8 August more than 50% students have still not paid the annual fee as per the PRO of DTU. Until 9 August, DTU admin has refused to budge any concessions and relaxations to the students . [88]

As of now, the office of LG has forwarded the matter to Directorate of Training and Technical Education for further action as per the complaint filed by DTU students.[89]
