It is not easy to get into DCE. In the entrance exam, 85% of the seats are reserved for Delhi based candidates. The remaining 15% seats are for the rest of India. It has been noticed that in the last few years, students have been flocking to schools of Delhi NCT for their 10+2 to compete for the 85% reserved seats. No entrance examination of India has such a peculiarity.
Delhi Technological University (DTU) is located at Rohini in the far Northwest region of Delhi. It is at a distance of 35 km (approx.) from the international airport of New Delhi.

Delhi residents can reach the university by bus and metro.

Faculty and Attendance
The faculty is highly experienced and knowledgeable. The core branches like electrical, mechanical and civil have a great set of professors who are masters in their field.
With respect to attendance, the university is strict during the first two years of engineering. Students have to maintain 75% attendance compulsorily, failing which strict action is taken against them. In extreme cases, students stand a chance of losing a semester.
