Following the scrapping of the four-year undergraduate programme by Delhi University in the middle of the admission process, the fate of two other courses — BTech in Innovation and BTech in Humanities — is uncertain.
While admissions to these courses, which are offered by the Cluster Innovation Centre (CIC), were supposed to begin on June 24, delay in undergraduate admissions owing to the FYUP controversy has put admissions for both courses on hold, CIC officials said.
“The Online Application Form for CIC UG admissions is not available yet. Fresh dates will be available soon. Inconvenience caused is deeply regretted,” reads the university website. Both courses were introduced in DU a year before FYUP. Introduced under the ‘meta’ concept, the four-year-long BTech in Humanities gave students the option of choosing subjects and studying them at any of DU’s constituent colleges.

Like FYUP’s compulsory foundation courses, this course requires students to take common papers in mathematics, communication, technology, language and culture. However, during statutory body meetings which were held to approve both courses, only a handful of members raised concerns on the manner of its curriculum formation. “We have raised apprehensions on these courses offered at CIC.
Even when the proposal to implement these courses had been tabled in the Academic and Executive councils, some teachers had … raised objections on the procedure of its implementation as the courses were not made by a department which was equipped to frame a BTech degree…,” Abha Dev Habib, a member of the EC, said.
“Since these courses were not introduced as part of FYUP, they have not been rolled back. However, the issues surrounding BTech courses under FYUP are the same for BTech in Humanities and BTech in Innovation. The university might make some changes in their terminology,” an official said.
