B.Tech students of Delhi Technical University who are enrolled in the evening shift course demanded the course be converted into full-time, accusing the university of not informing them before the admission.

According to the university official, the evening shift course was earlier open to only diploma holders and candidates having work experience. It has been running for the last 40 years.

“But in 2017, the course saw a shift after it was found that some candidates were furnishing fake work experience certificates or false documents”, the official said.

However, Students allege that they discovered about the nature of their course only after filing RTIs. They had filed an RTI in June in when they were informed it was a full-time course. But, in response to another RTI in September, it was stated that BTech evening was a part-time course of four-year duration.

The students are in a fix as they claim that they will not get jobs after completing this course and their future is at stake. They have also met Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia in connection with the matter who assured them help.

They also claimed that the prospectus or any other documents did not mention the course was “part-time”.

The varsity officials said they will talk to the students and sort out the issue amicably. They have affirmed the students that the degree that will be given to them will not have “part-time” written on it.
