The Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi (IIT Delhi) has embarked on a mission to become a comprehensive university and even admit students from outside the joint entrance exam (JEE) system for some new streams of education such as bachelor of design.
“We have a very strong and very active humanities and social sciences department. We also have a brand-new School of Public Policy. We have also created a department of design.
Next year, or this year, if everything goes well, we should be admitting undergraduate students from outside the JEE Advanced examination,” IIT Delhi Director V. Ramgopal Rao said during a foundation day programme on Wednesday.
