  • Technology as a Force Multiplier

DIT University has a clear-cut vision to be a technologically advanced campus and implement IT-based tools in all its operation. Primarily a Technical University campus with over 80% of students pursuing higher education in Science, Technology, and Engineering & Management (STEM) based programs, it becomes imperative to put best practices in place to make stakeholders tech savvy. In today's world, our firm belief is that appropriate and contemporary use of technology shall provide impetus to the future growth of DIT University. Considerable investment has been made in this direction in the last five years.

The deployment of IT resources ensures utilizing resources optimally for academic Curriculum Design and Delivery, research as a mode of knowledge creation, office functions (administrative and logistics), and green initiatives. The application of Technology at DIT is best demonstrated in the following areas on campus:-

Technology in Academics

Technology in the Academic environment has positively impacted Teaching & Learning, Assessment & Attainment Process.

We understand that in the contemporary education system, the focus from Guru-Shishya parampara on the teaching, learning, and evaluation process has shifted to Outcome Based Education (OBE). A Learning Management System (Initaially Moodle, and then MSTeams) along with an ERP system has been implemented to evaluate PEOs, POs, PSOs, and COs and measure the desired attainment during class participation.

Technology in University Governance

DIT University has moved its operations into a robust ERP system. Initially installed through SAP, it was recently moved to ‘Academia’. Currently, all the University's major functionalities, viz. Student life cycle Management, HR practices, Examinations, back office operations, hostel and transport management, infirmary, feedback, and documentation management is being maintained through the ERP system. This has provided a lot of transparency in the process and build stakeholders' trust. The University is able to manage its data and records in a much more effective and efficient manner.

One significant achievement after the ERP implementation was integrating students' merit cum means scholarship with admissions and its timely disbursement. The parents/guardian can monitor their ward's performance remotely.

Technology Incubation

DITU’s endeavor to promote research and development needs viable technology support. Initiatives have been taken to set up research laboratories and Centers of Excellence in niche areas to create knowledge, Product Design & Development and provide training in advanced technologies. The centers are established is in collaboration with industry and academic partners. Support has been received from DST, SERB, DRDO, UCOST, and others to strengthen it further. The foundation for the expansion has been laid through the Centre of Innovation, Incubation, and Entrepreneurship & Start-up (CIIES), to encourage innovations and startups among stdeunts & Faculty, and technology transfer to industry for commercialization can be supported.

Partnerships with IBM, Oracle, Coursera etc. has been built to enrich the curriculum and for faculty development in advanced technologies.

Technology in Campus Management

DIT University is conscious of national priorities of the environment & its sustainability. The University has installed Sewage Treatment Plant on campus to ensure zero discharge. The initiatives for energy conservation include Solar Panels for Electricity, Solar Water Heating systems, and the use of LEDs. Most viable technologies are in place for a clean & green campus in line with Swachha Bharat Abhiyan. This has resulted in energy savings of almost 54%.

Knowledge Resource Facilitation

The University avails the National Knowledge Network connectivity such as NPTEL, Virtual Lab, etc. The latest version of Libsys 10 software, an Institutional digital repository using open-source software called DSpace, has been installed for developing an electronic database on theses, dissertations, and faculty publications, Audio Visual Lab (Media Centre) for preparation of Teaching & Learning content. Archival and Retrieval of Reference material. Computerized Library with Library Software, Online Public Access Catalogue (OPAC), CAS & SDI Services, Institutional Repository• DSpace, and Online Readers Advisory Services-SAP are a few facilities where technology is at the forefront. Technology to promote ethical practices is ensured by the use of"Turnitin Software for plagiarism checks and monitoring. All project reports, dissertations, and thesis at the UG, PG, and Doctoral levels are checked to maintain ethical standards. In addition, the University has invested in keeping a connection with its Alumni through Almaconnect, a web portal.
