The erstwhile C.R. State College of Engineering, conceived by Haryana Govt. as a premier educational Institute of the region. Soon it made a mark not only in the field of engineering education (as evidenced in placement statistics) but also in Research & development, as evidenced in quality publications with citations numbering in hundreds. The self-fired faculty worked relentlessly not only to obtain a world-bank project (then TEQIP-I and now TEQIP-III), but also fetched grants and sponsored research and infrastructure projects form central govt. funding agencies. By 2006, it came to be known as a well-established Institute waiting in the wings to take the next leaps forward.
Keenly watching the Institute grow in stature, the State Govt. recognized it as a potential Institute for a higher role in Engineering, Science, Management & Architecture education. Thus, by way of enactment of a Legislative act-??, the State Govt. upgraded the Institute to Deenbandhu Chhotu Ram University of Science & Technology in 2006 and 3 years later, i.e., in year 2009, it was accorded the status of an affiliating Univ. Since its inception, the University history is replete with examples of unprecedented growth in multiple dimensions – ranging from growth in state-of-the-art infrastructure to globally acceptable parameters of cutting-edge research, such as h-index, etc. Besides actively engaging themselves in research in diverse areas, the faculty is not only credited with publications in International & National Journals, but also has delivered key-note addresses, invited talks and Expert Lectures and chaired Technical Sessions at different fora in India and abroad. Of course, organization of Short Term Courses and Conferences for Faculty is a regular feature of the Univerity, keeping the campus alive and kicking with academic fervor.
The faculty has rendered useful services in the shape of Consultancy to Industry / Public sector undertakings. The Faculty has also been on the Advisory Boards / Committees of several National & International fora and involved in reviewing Research Papers. Faculty has won acclaim by winning several awards at the National level.
All departments have well-equipped and spacious laboratories with all modern facilities for experimentation at U.G., P.G. and Ph. D. levels, with all major items of software and equipment. Hostels are hubs of activities, co-operative learning and responsible living. Sports arenas find huge sports activity in the evenings.
The curriculum is periodically revised, with electives providing additional orientation, & the Projects offering opportunities to apply the design skills & knowledge to practical real-world problems. Certain batches have had almost 100 % placement. Students too bag prizes & awards at National and International fora.
