Hundreds of B.Tech students of Delhi University had staged a protest outside the HRD Ministry and submitted a representation demanding that the four-year B.Tech course should not be scrapped.
They said their course should not be converted to B.Sc as it would not hold any value for them.
“We don’t want Delhi University to scrap the B.Tech course. If B.Tech gets scrapped, our future will get destroyed. We will not sit silent till our demands are met,” Rajesh Choudhary, a protester.
A 12-member committee of Principals formed by DU vice chancellor Dinesh Singh for admissions would also submit its recommendations by this evening.
Under pressure from UGC to act on its directive, DU yesterday scrapped its four-year undergraduate programme (FYUP) and reverted to the previous 3-year structure.
