Plz tell is dtu also had good placement for production engineering ?? And why is the difference b/w evening and morning batch ?

05 Dec, 2019 23:40
Shobhna Chaturvedi

Hi Aman, as it is known, DTU has exemplary placement records for all the courses being offered. Thus, a candidate need not worry regarding placement while being in DTU.

Difference between morning and evening batch is only of the timings. Rest of the things are same for both the batches. However, academic calendar may somehow vary for two of the batches.
