University officials said that the commissioner of DTE objected to Rs 1.2 lakh per annum fee for BE computing programme for a state-funded university. The faculty charges Rs 1,500 per annum for most courses offered by the faculty of technology and engineering (FTE). Already, 60 students have opted for the new programme.


The MSU had submitted a proposal to the DTE this year to begin two new courses under the FTE. While the textile engineering department will host a new BE course in textile processing, the MSU proposed to set up a new department in computing for the new BE course in computing. It proposed to set up eight research laboratories, begin three PG programmes in the department in coming years, and conduct research. “We have received a recurring grant of Rs 1 crore from the state government which we plan to use to establish the new department for computing. The decision to keep the fee high was because we will have to set up a department for the course” FTE dean AN Misra said.
