Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College

Deen Dayal Upadhyaya College

Deen Dayal Upadhyaya is a constituent college of the University of Delhi. The Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi established the college in the year 1990 in Karampura. The college receives 100% grant from the Govt. of NCT of Delhi and is recognized under 2 (f) and 12 (b) of the UGC Act. We cater to the students of Delhi as well as neighboring states, particularly Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar. Recently we have shifted to our new campus in Sector-3, Dwarka.

We offer nine under-graduate Honours programes in Computer Science, Electronics, Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Mathematics, English, Commerce and Bachelor of Management Studies. Further, we also run bachelor’s programme in physical science, Life Science, mathematical science and Bachelor in Arts. We also offer Add-on courses in Russian Language and Effective Communication and Personality Development through Theatre (ECPDT) which are very popular amongst students. Recently, we have started a certificate course in French.

Teaching, Learning and Evaluation - Our faculty comprises the backbone of our curriculum delivery system. The college has 94 permanent and 35 temporary (ad hoc) teachers and 18 Guest faculty members. We are extremely cautious in recruiting our faculty. Three of our faculty members have received “distinguished teacher” awards. Each department keeps organizing talks by experts and distinguished resource persons. Our faculty members, including the Principal, have been members of the Academic and Executive councils, Boards of Research Studies, Departmental Committees of Courses as well as syllabi drafting committees. The student strength is 2531 of which 1422 male and 1109 females. Further, the implementation of various quotas ensures that our classrooms are fairly diverse and inclusive. A teacher-pupil ratio of 1:18 ensures that our delivery is interactive and learner centric. Whenever and wherever necessary, we do engage in remedial facilitation. Apart from class room interactions, the delivery of the curricula is reinforced by learner engagement in a plethora of activities like field visits, heritage walks, Conferences/Seminars/Workshops in concerned disciplines and also on issues such as Gender Sensitization, Women Development, Environmental Awareness. In sync with our commitment to value-based education, we also organize lectures/workshops on moral & ethical values from organisations like Art of Living (like Yes+), World Peace Foundation, Gandhi Bhawan, Vivekananda Kendra etc. We also provide our students an exposure to Indian Art and Culture through Spic Macay and Yoga Camps.

Research, Consultancy and Extension - Eighteen teachers have been involved along with sixty students in Innovation Projects sanctioned by the University of Delhi during the last two years. Many of them are Ph. D supervisors and supervising independently and/or jointly research scholars.  The college has created a space for setting up a multi-disciplinary research centre with financial support from UGC and other agencies and has space for dedicated research centres for each department.

Under the auspices of NSS, students participate actively in Civil Defence and Disaster Management programmes, election awareness campaign and creating tobacco free communities. In the outreach programme the college works for the benefit of under-privileged children from slum colonies by adopting a colony and also for the disabled including Visually-Challenged and Spastics. The NSS unit also organizes cultural programmes and sports events for differently abled.
