Delhi University Semester System - Your Feedback

Delhi University Semester System

From: Vice-Chancellor, University of Delhi

To: Principals, Faculty and Students of the University of Delhi

I (Vice-Chancellor, University of Delhi ) am writing this open letter to all the stakeholders in our University about the issue of introducing Semester System in our undergraduate programmes. We had a special meeting of the Academic Council of the University on 7th October, 08 and the matter was discussed at length. While there was an overwhelming empathy for introduction of the semester system, there was a feeling that extended consultations are required as there could be difficulties in implementation and these difficulties need to be identified and taken into consideration.

To begin with - the following arguments were advanced for the implementation of a semester system at the undergraduate level from the academic session 2010:

* Semester system and Credit system are in conformity with global practices and standards and will facilitate student exchange and better appreciation of our degrees.
* Semester system and Credit system will allow movement across universities within India and outside India.
* Semester system will allow more inter-disciplinarity.
* Students will work throughout the year rather than through periods of leisure and hyper activity.
* Regular exams would lead to continuous evaluation.
* Semester system has been successfully operating in India in many premier institutes like the IITs and many universities like JNU and the University of Hyderabad. Some of the courses at the University of Delhi are being taught in a semester mode.
* Semester system is going to be implemented uniformly at the postgraduate level in the University of Delhi from 2009 and needs to be implemented at all the levels and in all the courses for uniformity.

It may be added that we already have mid-term examinations in all the undergraduate courses - semester system will lead to replacement of these exams with end-semester examinations.

Please feel free to speak to your Principals, Head of the Departments at the University, fellow teachers in the Staff Councils and Elected Representatives to articulate your thoughts, concerns and advice pertaining to this matter.

Please send your suggestions at the e-mail ID or fill in the Feedback Form on this page within the next three weeks or so.

Techfest 2009

IIT Bombay Presents Techfest 2009

Techfest 24th to 26th January 2009

The role of science in the history of humanity would always be unparalleled, unrivaled and indispensable. Any effort to put to words, its importance in our lives is a futile task, without exception. So let's not dig into the definitions of science and technology and just celebrate its glory and grandeur. If the Ancient Greeks organized Olympics as a celebration of human body, IIT Bombay organizes Techfest as a celebration of human mind and its scientific genius. If "2001: A Space Odyssey" was Clarke's tribute to science, Techfest is ours.

Techfest, the Annual International Science and Technology Festival of IIT Bombay, is proud to bring to you its twelfth edition. From nerve-racking Competitions to Lectures by noted luminaries, from incredible Workshops to fun-filled Ozone, Techfest 2009 will have everything to conquer your imagination. And just when you thought it couldn't get any bigger, it also happens to be the Golden Jubilee year of our illustrious institution.

Techfest 2008 carried the message of "Save our Planet" and ended on a hopeful note with thousands of students joining us in the endeavor. We thank all the individuals and organizations involved in making it a grand success.

Techfest 2009, scheduled from 24th to 26th January, promises to carry the legacy handed over to it through eleven years and bring you a bigger and a better Techfest.
