In view of the unprecedented situation, DSEU is preparing for online, offline and blended mode of teaching-learning methods. “With the advancement of technology, hands-on-training might not be a challenge for students. We are in consultation with experts to have virtual lab facility to deal with any adverse situation,” says Vohra adding that the University aims to prepare job-ready students by integrating employability and life skills among them.
For admission to diploma courses, the University will conduct a home-based AI-proctored test on August 8 where students will be asked multiple-choice-questions (MCQ) related to Math, Science and English of class X level. “Candidates can write the admission test from the comfort of their homes or any safe location. They may use their desktop, laptop or smartphone as per the requirement. We are also arranging centre-based online test for candidates who have zero access to digital infrastructure,” says Vohra.
To familiarise students with the test pattern, there will be mock tests from July 28 to August 6. Admission to BTech courses will be done based on JEE Main score. For MCA and MTech (Tool Engineering), the University will offer admission on the basis of NIT MCA Common Entrance Test (NIMCET) and GATE score, respectively.
Needy candidates will be offered all sort of financial help to pursue their education once selected. “The University will assist such candidates in getting scholarships, freeships, education loan, and benefits from various government schemes so that they will not be left behind,” adds Vohra. The University will also offer optional interest-profile test to selected students to help them identify their area of interest and choose the programme accordingly.
