The Delhi Technological University (DTU), formerly Delhi College of Engineering, has yet again been ranked among the top ten engineering institutions of the country including the IITs.
DTU has been ranked ninth in the recent Outlook-MDRA Survey 2013 of ‘Top 100 Engineering Colleges'.
DTU stands at eighth position in the list of ‘Top 10 Government Engineering Colleges which include IITs'.
The survey was undertaken to evaluate the status of educational institutions in the Country in varied professional fields like engineering, medical sciences, law, hotel management, dentistry, architecture, fashion technology etc.
The survey also places DTU at first position in the categories of ‘'Placements', second in terms of ‘Return on Investment', and at second position in category of Top 3 Metro (Delhi & NCR).
DTU has thus emerged as the best value for money for quality technical education and innovations as per the survey. This is all the more important as DTU invests one fifth of the funds as compared to IITs. It may be added that highly talented students coming from various sections of society join DTU each year for pursuing high quality and industry relevant education at DTU.
