What is Tool Engineering

Tool Engineering is a division of Industrial Engineering. Its function is to plan the process of manufacture, develop various tools and machines and integrate facilities required for producing particular products with minimal expenditure of time, labour and material. Coursework is designed to include the art of designing jigs, fixtures, press tools, creating die casting designs, plastic moulds designs, mastering advanced plastic processing technologies and becoming perfect in metrology and measurements. B.E./B.Tech in Tool Engineering is a 4-year programme. Tool engineering is based on the use and application of various industrial tools within a manufacturing set-up. Students specialising in this branch of engineering pay attention to the structure and stiffness of the various industrial tools and machines used for creating certain products.

is time to apply for delhi tool engineering college is over

Shivang Dubey 27th May, 2020

Hey Ravi

Earlier DITE took admissions on the basis of GGSIPU Central Entrance Test but now the admissions into Technical programs are done on the basis of JEE Mains (Paper-1) score. So, right now the admissions are not yet started for DITE. For that you need to wait until the second attempt of JEE Mains is conducted and colleges start their admission process.

And for Diploma course, it is done on the basis of CET examination conducted by GGSIPU, to which the application form ares till open.

I have completed my class 12 in delhi and i have got 60 percentile in jee 2020. Is i am eligible for Delhi tool engineering college

parthshukla 7th May, 2020

Hello!

Delhi tool engineering college takes admission on the basis of 12 class. The cutoff is 55% but it keeps on changing every year. It's a good college and if you have scored above 60% in +2  then you will get admission in that college.  Age limit is also there in this college. Students above the age of 21 cannot take admission in this college.  You should have passed all the subjects in class 12 boards including english. They dont take admission on the basis of jee mains percentile.

Good luck!
