Admission will not be via the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Advanced through which IITs admit to its BTech programmes but the Undergraduate Common Entrance Examination for Design, or UCEED. Registration for UCEED 2022 has already started. Students can log on to the official website.
V Ramgopal Rao, director, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi said: “We are delighted about starting of this new Bachelor’s programme in design as this is the first time IIT Delhi would be admitting undergraduate students (BDes) from other than Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics.
