2 www.dtutimes.org words of wisdom 17th edition et me begin by extending my very best wishes for a happy peaceful and professionally enlightening new year 2012 to all the members of faculty staff and students of the delhi technological university as also to the alumni of this great institution former members of the faculty and staff and all those who have supported the growth of this great institution during its long professional journey spanning over 70 years l celebrating 70 years of excellence the illustrious march on the path of excellence of this premier institution began in 1941 at kashmere gate when the founding fathers of this great institution put together the concept of a model institution of higher learning in which engineering and technology excellence would flourish in a seamless environment of arts and sculpture town planning and architecture commerce and management and pure and applied sciences such was the conviction of the founding fathers that all these streams of learning and scholarship flourished under one roof enriching a fuller understanding of engineering as a multifaceted discipline supported by a rich and profound understanding of humanities social sciences business and management and together serving the interest of the society and nation through applied engineering applied arts planning and management delhi technological university since 2009 its predecessors delhi college of engineering 1965-2009 and delhi polytechnic 19411964 have provided to our nation and world at large some of the best and finest engineering and technology professionals who have led with distinction great enterprises and corporate houses in india and abroad brought immense glory to their alma-mater while at the same time enhanced the pride of the profession of engineering by their distinguished services performed with utmost sincerity and commitment the long list of distinguished alumni of this great institution which includes vinod dham 1971 ec the designer of pentium chip raj soin 1969 mech chairman soin international ohio usa k.l chugh 1960 mech former cmd of itc ajoy choudhury 1958 architecture eminent architect dr durga das agrawal

embassy tokyo japan and many more is a matter of great pride and honour for this mother institution of iit delhi school of planning and architecture college of arts and it may not be wrong if we add to this premier league the famous faculty of management of delhi university and shri ram college of commerce both having been nurtured by the initial genes from the then delhi polytechnic of government of india at kashmere gate on this occasion when we celebrate 70 years of excellence our of this great institution let us get a renewed inspiration from our distinguished alumni and also from all those who have provided this institution the vital strength to stand among the tallest in the community of engineering institutions in india and have enabled us to earn a high recognition and repute abroad and let this inspire us to march forward on the path of professional excellence and scale new frontiers of engineering technology education research in the years to come to some extent by adding polymer science and technology in 80 s at the master s level by that time the delhi college of engineering at kashmere gate was already offering master s program in 7 other disciplines including thermal production controls and instrumentation electronics and communication hydraulics and flood control environmental engineering and structural engineering a master s program in computer technology and application was also added in the 90 s to strengthen the mathematical base of modern computing as also to produce industry-relevant manpower for the computer and software industry the development of the new campus at bawana road on a plot of 164 acres provided a unique opportunity for innovations and design of the institutional campus and to create an environment in which education research and innovations could flourish in a largely residential campus where the students and teachers would have hours of interaction beyond the working hours and motivated to return to their laboratories and library after a short break in the evening and on holidays a major fillip to the expansion of educational and professional activities took place once the college shifted to its new campus from august 1996 onwards the under graduate intake which was at 320 at kashmere gate prior to shifting to the new campus rose to 670 in 2008 with the addition of new disciplines of information technology bio technology and polymer science and chemical technology at under graduate levels it is all the more a matter of great pride that the magnificent new campus was designed by one of our illustrious alumni an eminent architect shri ajoy choudhury 1958 architecture who has excelled globally for his architectural design innovations the campus was constructed under the professional command and quality supervision of our country s one of the most illustrious technocrat shri bhishma kumar chugh known for his missionary zeal and firm resolve for excellence who later rose to the eminent position of the director general of cpwd and currently working as special advisor on innovative technologies and systems for government of nct delhi the construction work of the new campus was also supported by a number of eminent alumni which included chief engineer shri i.m singh shri p.s chadha project manager who later became additional director general cpwd shri rajesh banga and shri gajendra kumar young assistant engineers at that time i had the privilege of being associated from conceptualizing the design to its final implementation and shifting the institution from its kashmere gate campus to the lush green magnificent new campus designed for innovation and energy efficient building designs prof j.n mudgill the doyen of technical education who himself has been the toughest principal of dce and the man who planned and built iit delhi was also associated in finalizing the designs and supervision of the construction work along with senior members of the faculty of the institution namely prof m pal das former principal and professor of civil engineering prof y.v.s.r it is also a matter of great pride that the famous delhi polytechnic within the same campus had a technical school to sensitize and nurture that vital engineering and technology instinct in its budding engineers while providing the thrill and excitement of india s rich and profound heritage a legacy of excellence in design and town planning as was kashmere gate and the old delhi area then being the hub of india s great magnificence no wonder this institution produced some of the tallest personalities in engineering and technology commerce and management arts and sculpture and town planning and architecture the only institution in the neighborhood at that time was the thompson college of engineering at roorkee together these two institutions in the northern india were the torch bearers of india s excellence in engineering and technology education the historic campus at kashmere gate bore testimony of india s great heritage of education and scholarship it is the same kashmere gate campus which was the home for the famous st stephen s college and hindu college this historic campus has witnessed the epoch-making events such as the rise of iit delhi at hauz khas school of planning and architecture at i.p estate near i.t.o college of arts at tilak marg opposite supreme court of india and later the rise of delhi institute of technology which later became nsit the transformation of delhi polytechnic into delhi college of engineering in 1965 was a historic event when the institution became a college of engineering under the then delhi administration the academic programs were affiliated to delhi university ever since 1952 this historic change was made to provide the necessary vertical growth in engineering and technology education by offering degrees at the level of degree post graduate degree and later at the doctoral level the core disciplines of engineering namely civil mechanical and electrical were further added by newer disciplines such as electronics and communication in the 70 s and computer engineering in the 80 s having transferred the textile technology and chemical engineering to iit delhi with lockstock and barrel faculty technical staff books and laboratory equipments the institution was feeling a vacuum in respect of these applied engineering disciplines this was later bridged
