With several new undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the academic year 2022-23, the Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University (DSEU) will also add six new campuses this academic year that will increase the seat strength by 800 across courses. Officials said that the university, which was established in 2020, will admit around 7,000 students this year.
DSEU Vice-Chancellor Neharika Vohra, said that at present they have 15 campuses and six more campuses are being readied.
Elaborating on the new programmes, Vohra said two undergraduate programmes related to emergency medical technology and dialysis technology have been started.
“Besides these, four new bachelor's programmes will start by end of this year. Both the courses have 60 seats each. Their classes will begin in June.
We are also starting four other bachelor's programmes, including Bachelor in Hospital Management, Bachelor in Optometry and Bachelor in Autosales. Optometry is the large programme with 180 seats, which is being done in partnership with Lenskart," she said.
“The new programmes will not be "very expensive" and will have a very reasonable fee structure. The university is doubling seats in the engineering programme as well,” she said.
Among the postgraduate courses, the university has started three new MTech programmes.
“In the MTech programmes, we are taking 20 students each but we will be offering fellowship to all of them," she said.
The university is also planning to launch PhD programmes in four subjects -- computer application, computer science and IT, tool and dye and mechanical engineering, she informed.
"We haven't decided on the number of seats (in these PhD programmes). However, we will not take more than 20 students," she said.
The university said it is planning to start a post-graduate diploma programme in digital marketing in December.
DSEU, which is recognised as a State university by the UGC, was established by the Delhi Government.
