Although, it has been quite some time since the University of Delhi has scrapped the controversial FYUP, the B. Tech scenario regarding the validity of their degree yet remains contentious. According to a few sources, DU has not got a green signal from the All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) without which, no B. Tech DU degree holder will be an approved engineer/technologist even if he/she may have completed the Four Year Course with outstanding results.
While a few students student pursuing the course are optimistic that DU will get the approval from AICTE, the confusion still prevails wherein most of the students are not sure whether they would receive the approval or prove to be the evergreen “lab rat” batch. Sources suggest that according to UGC, the respective colleges should take AICTE approval for their remaining B. Tech courses (electronics, computer science, food technology, instrumentation electronics and polymer science).
It is even said that it’s not DU’s responsibility to take AICTE approval, because DU can be affiliated to a college, but the degrees/programs in various colleges need to be recognized from respective regulatory bodies, which in this case is AICTE, is a duty of the college and not the University.
