Old buildings with no good sports facilities labs have old outdated instruments and errors are like one of the most common things in these equipments with very bad lab teachers rather than teaching they expect u to know every thing
Curriculum is good but the 1st year with common subjects is a little boring with teachers showing little to no attention except a few teachers are not upto date with todays teaching techniques and are least worried
I dont know much about it right now but dtu is considered to be at the top in terms of placement and all highest salary packages offered were of 24lks pa to 15 lks pa with good perk its ine of the top in our counter
It's cheap comparatively to other engineering colleges

My college has every required facility that a student needs. It has a good hostel, the classes are air-conditioned. We have wi-fi in our hostels as well as in our campus, so we don't face any problem regarding the internet. Food is hygienic and is affordable for a student, for eg, a plate of chole bhature in the canteen just costs 30/-. All the living spaces are clean including classes.
I am currently pursuing in Electrical branch. I like this branch and I have an interest in this that's why I chose it. Quality of teaching is very good. They all are highly qualified and they are permanent faculty. Our curriculum changes regularly according to the need of society.
Placements are quite good at DTU. More than 75% get placed and others refer to higher studies. Highest package in my branch was around 24 LPA and the average package is around 8 LPA. The companies come not only for the placement but for the internship as well.

A Day in DTU

College Infrastructure
My College Infrastructure is very good.Classroom and Labs has all the facilities and equipment's needed for studying.College is quite well maintained and the food provided in the canteen is Hygienic .
In terms of academics DTU has the best faculty in Delhi. Quality of teaching is very good and the teachers explain very well and in very simple way.Curriculum doesn't need any development and yes this course makes me job oriented.
DTU is always know for his Placements and for sure the placements are very good. Teachers and college is very supportive to the students. Average salary offered by the company's are 4-5 lakh per year which is quite good for the students.
My course cost me 160000 which is quite expensive but this is a professional degree so it can cost this much and there are other colleges which have more fees than this. I think i am totally getting my money worth's
Campus Life
DTU is always know for its big campus. I am very much happy from my college . Teachers and students are quite friendly in this college. Location is also quite safe and near to the college and i am satisfied with my college.

The college infrastructure is not upto mark....the classes for first year takes place in sps(semi permanent structures) which are good compared to classes in other years. Library is good and you will get good environment there , separate space for m tech students but it does not have enough course related books for all the students. Sports centre is good, it has football ground, cricket ground, nets for practice,indoor room for table tennis,badminton and also has a gym. Labs are good.
The teaching is not good here. The course is also old and not at all updated.In first year all students have to study common subjects and that too is not updated, we have to use primitive tools in mechanical workshops in first year which are outdated.
I think this is the reason why many students lands to DTU.We had more than 5-6 students with over 1 crore per annum package last year.The highest domestic package was around 40 lacs per annum. The avg. package is around 10 lacs per annum.Google, Microsoft,uber,flipkart,amazon are some of the many recruiters.

Amazing Campus Life

College Infrastructure
Dtu is pretty old but the college is spread in around 165 acres .classrooms are well equipped with ac's but some of them does not work,campus also has high speed wifi throughout the campus and sports facilities are also provided by the college
Academics is not upto the expectation most of the teachers just teach for the sake of teaching and attendance has more importance then student getting a knowledge but if you approach to teachers they will defiantly help you
according to previous year records dtu has placement record of around 95% and most of the eligible students with a decent cgpa get placed easily most of the companies that visit it Delhi also visit dtu average package in for tech branches are near 17.7 lakhs whereas for core branches its quite low around 8-9 lakhs major companies that visit dtu are Amazon,Uber ,Google,Microsoft,Codenation,Tower research.
Fees is increasing every year currently it is 1,66,000 per year next year it would increase by 15-20% ,considering the facilities provided by college fees is pretty justified
Campus Life
Dtu has one of the best campus life if compared to other tier-1 colleges ,you will have fests mostly every month and there will be many events that keeps on happening which make you indulged in them ,and it helps to make you social, dtu is pretty safe you can move inside campus any time ,it also has hospital to handle emergencies

harshita sharan Student Expert 26th May, 2020

Hello aspirant,

If you wish to get into course offered by Delhi Technoligal University (DTU) then you'll be eligible to get into the college even if you score below 60 % in Mathematics given that you score Minimum 60% aggregate marks in Physics, Mathematics, and Chemistry and have passed all three subjects along with language subject. And also since the result isn't declared yet, i'll sugest you not to panic a lot.

Good Luck

Shudhanshu Gupta Student Expert 25th May, 2020
as you said your school is in Delhi NCR but as per the eligibility criteria for Delhi quota in Delhi technical University candidate must have his /her class 12th marksheet with purely Delhi government/ private school, even if your school is in Delhi NCR that will not work, overall you are not eligible for Delhi quota in Delhi technical University.
Best of luck.
