Gurukul Darshan IIT Delhi

IIT Delhi is one of the finest Engineering Colleges of India. It is always among the top choices of every IIT aspirant in the country.

The History of the institute dates back to the British Rule, here is the history:

The Government of India negotiated with the British Government for collaboration in setting up an Institute of Technology at Delhi also known as IIT Delhi. The British Government agreed in principle to such a collaboration , but were inclined initially to start in a modest way. It was therefore agreed that a College of Engineering & Technology should be established at Delhi with their assistance. A trust called the Delhi Engineering College Trust was established with the help of the UK Government and the Federation of British Industries in London. Later H.R.H. Prince Philips, Duke of Edinburgh, during his visit to India, laid the foundation stone of the College at Hauz Khas on January 28,1959.  One may find more info on
