Department of Distance Education, Thapar University (DDE), Patiala was established in 2007. It is approved by the joint committee of AICTE-UGC-DEC. Thapar University launched B.Tech programs through distance education. These programs judiciously combine the flexibility and ingenuity of the distance mode with the features of the on campus education system. With advances in multimedia and communication technologies, distance education is being adopted by corporations as well as universities.
DDE applies especially to potential students who are motivated and committed but work bound, as well as students who find it extremely difficult to fit their family and work responsibilities into a traditional academic schedule. The objective of this department is to enable working professionals keep pace with the changing technology paradigm and open new carrier options. The mission of the department is to cater to the need of increasing demand of technical man power in a step towards the human resource development.
