Two Decade Strategic Plan 2012-2031

The DEI Strategic Plan is comprehensive, bold, and action oriented. The plan embodies the spirit of “Why not?” It is a road map for providing an environment in which we will produce quality students who are well-rounded men and women ready to take on challenges and be leaders with a blend of top quality academics, work-experience, and a strong value system. It is a plan that will transform the institution by setting high goals, raising expectations, increasing accountability, and energizing the community.

Our plan is transformational.

Research and Technology Park (RTP)

With the recent establishment of the Quantum and Nano Systems Centre(2010), the Centre for Consciousness Studies(2011), and forthcoming Centre for Bio-Inspired Systems(2012-13), DEI has put in place the foundation for bringing together a strong trans-disciplinary research programme in these leading fields of research. The Centre for Bio-inspired systems will also act as a development and incubation facility for intelligent information processing technologies.  The RTP will also expand to include Centres in other disciplines such as agile manufacturing, hydrogen research, and green energy.

Collaborations and Connections

DEI firmly believes that quality education and research both receive impetus through collaboration with other leading institutions and for several years our MOU’s have reinforced this belief. These have provided opportunities for students through internships and advanced video-conferenced courses. Our present MoU’s with the University of Maryland, University of Waterloo, Michigan State University, University of Missouri, IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur, and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research will be strengthened in all aspects: teaching, research, and exchange of faculty and students. Other MoUs with Stanford University, MIT, and other IIT’s are on the anvil.

Outreach

In 2004, DEI launched a major social service initiative with an outreach programme that provides need based education and targets geographically remote areas and underprivileged and backward communities (particularly women). Our Distance Education Programme offers a wide variety of vocational training, diploma, and professional degree programmes at 76 locations in India. These programmes will be consolidated, updated and expanded. A bold new initiative slated for launch during 2012 is e-DEI-de (e-DEI distance education). This “Not-for-profit” modular on-line mentored programme will offer a variety of short 2-4 week Certificate Courses in diverse subject areas. In the plan, e-DEI-de will expand to provide opportunities for working professionals work towards obtaining diplomas or degrees after having completed the requisite number of Certificate credits. e-DEI-de will also open up for all on-campus students to provide them with new opportunities for skill-set enhancement and live training.

Critical Enablers for Implementation

Critical enablers of the plan will be the expansion and streamlining of the administration for efficiency and complete transparency, and the roll-out of a new ERP software that will encompass academics, administration and accounts. DEI has also mobilized complete support from its Alumni both in India and abroad. Continuous monitoring and feedback from our internal Academic and Administrative Audit Committee, as well as mechanisms for feedback from students, alumni, and employers are in place. Implementation of the plan will require the intense involvement of the entire University Community, clear partitioning of the proposed tasks, assignment of competent teams responsible for executing them, careful resource management, and the development of performance indicators.  Our plan addresses all these issues in detail.
