The Delhi University Teacher's Association (DUTA) has opposed the manner in which the vice-chancellor announced proposal to start a four-year B Tech degree in Humanities on Friday.

"The Vice-Chancellor has unilaterally announced major academic changes and new programmes. A change can become a reform for a system only if it is first identified as an organic need and then brought in through debate and discussion. We wish to highlight that till date there has been no debate or discussion on the four year undergraduate programme, the concept of Meta University or 'B.Tech' in Humanities in any statutory body - be it Staff Council, Committee of Courses, or Faculties," DUTA said in a statement.

The members of DUTA added that the overhaul of the university was being carried out with a vision to commercialise and commodify education.
