Students aspiring for admissions to the masters courses in the Delhi Technical University (DTU) will have three more courses to choose from this academic year.
The varsity has introduced two-year courses in MTech (Geotechnical Engineering), MTech (Signal Processing & Digital Design) and MTech (Bio-informatics). Each of these courses will have 18 seats.
MTech in Geotechnical Engineering, to be taught under the Civil Engineering Department, will focus on creating a deeper understanding of the soil and rock mechanics. It will also focus on latest techniques of remote-sensing and use of GIS and GPS systems in mapping the Earth’s surface.
Modelling and simulation of Earth systems will also be covered so as to study the changes occurring in the sub-soil systems and rock dynamics.
If you are keen on digital design analysis, you can go for MTech in Signal Processing and Digital Design offered by the Electronics and Communication Engineering Department.
The Biotechnology Department of the varsity will teach MTech in Bio-informatics. It is an interdisciplinary field of Science in which Biology, Computer Science and Information Technology are merged into a single discipline.
Students applying for these courses need to have a minimum eligibility of 60 per cent marks in the prescribed qualifying examination and a valid GATE score to secure admission in a full-time MTech programme. All the applications received will be short listed on the basis of performance in GATE followed by an interview.
Candidates can obtain the prospectus and application forms either in person or on payment of Rs 1,000 by demand draft drawn in favour of the Registrar, DTU and payable at Delhi. The application forms can also be downloaded from www.dce.edu.
