DASA stands for Direct Admission of Students Abroad. It is a scheme of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India that aims to facilitate admission for Foreign Nationals, Persons of Indian Origin, or Non-Resident Indians for UG and PG Programmes in the fields of Engineering, Architecture, or Planning in Indian Institutes of Information Technology (IITs), National Institutes of Technology (NITs), Schools of Planning and Architecture, as well as other premier CFTIs (Centrally Funded Technical Institutions) in India.
India can claim itself to be in a really high position as one of the leading countries that provide affordable higher education to its people and to scholars and students from countries all around the world. Students are sure to experience rich traditions, heritage, and be exposed to a diverse culture which would enable them to get the necessary skills they would need to succeed in today’s global economy with ever-shrinking geographical barriers.
The CTFIs that are participating in DASA will have established themselves as one among the top-ranked institutions in India in both teaching and research and the graduates will be assured of a rewarding professional career. A degree from any of these institutions is one of the most competitive of its kind while pursuing an international career in engineering, technology, or architecture.
