From the Acting Director’s Desk….
Welcome to the Institute of Home Economics, a premier college of the University of Delhi! The college offers a bouquet of courses and is firmly committed to creating an interface between academics and research on one hand and community on the other. We are proud to say that every course offered at the college has a component of extension activities carried out in the form of public campaigns, collaborations with organisations, literacy programmes, advocacy and product development. The students are also encouraged to take up research projects in collaboration with other departments under the guidance of their teachers as a conscious step towards building a wider, global perspective.
In addition to the strong practical component to each course of study, the students are exposed to emerging trends and developments through seminars, workshops and lectures by experts in their respective fields. Field trips, study tours and internships are important and conscious elements of course design.
Institute of Home Economics strives to cultivate a scientific temperament with a strong focus on research culture and aptitude among its students. It aims to provide students with a repertoire of knowledge and skills that will help them to develop as professionals to meet the current and futuristic needs of society. The Institute continues its onward journey to excellence as it completes sixty years of its existence in 2021. We at IHE look forward to a future committed to keeping pace with fast changing technological developments and at the same time being fully conscious of ethical codes and human values.
Come! Join the IHE family and empower yourself with holistic education and academic excellence.
