B.Tech - Computer Technology
The primary intention of this department is to inculcate entrepreneurship skills, qualities, motivation, managerial skills required to run the business/enterprise. Accordingly, the program has been designed to explore entrepreneurial theory and experience through mentors.
Addressing to a crucial requirement of the present times, DSU is offering an exclusive program, a one of its kind, leading to B.Tech in Computer Technology with a focus on Entrepreneurship skills. This would give the students an option to think innovatively to identify ideas that could be converted into a product. To inculcate entrepreneurship skills, the seminar-based curriculum would be more of doing and learning rather than traditional class-room learning. Further, the teaching-learning would have more industry inputs. Evaluation processes would be to assess and ensure the student’s continued ability to apply knowledge to a real product that should go to market. The student would be directly interacting with working professionals and Visiting Faculty / Professors on a regular basis. These professionals would be mentoring the students on individual basis in converting their ideas into a product. In this sense, this program is very different over the traditional Engineering courses offered at DSU or elsewhere.
Every idea would have a team of 3-5 students; team members are chosen by the original owner of the idea or by the Chief Mentor. The criteria for students to be in a team would be originality, technical skills, entrepreneur ability, interpersonal skills, leadership, ability to learn more than one domain- for instance in addition to core Engineering, also master concepts in Design, Marketing, Finance, Logistics and other related fields that could be requirements for any independent individual project.
A good part of the 4 lakh sq.ft space in DSU’s Campus 3 - located on Hosur Road near Kudlu gate, (12 minutes’ drive from Silk Board) has provision to accommodate about 200 enterprises offering all the needed support and facilities for an idea to be translated into a product. This one of its kind initiative aims to become a prototype to be replicated nationally. A young individual now has the option to enter the portals of DSU to be trained as a professional Engineer in a selected domain or opt to become an Engineer-cum-Entrepreneur.
