What you will study here?


The Institute of Home Economics offers courses related to Food and Nutrition, Food and Technology, Fabric and Apparel management and other Science related courses. Also, if you want to pursue a Ph.D in the courses mentioned, IHE is the best institute to study in.


Our generation, even now, is inclined towards the off-stream courses of Home science where they can learn how to establish and maintain a balance between personal and professional life. The course not only teaches ‘How to get the balance’ but also about Human Development, Child Psychology which includes education about the psychological aspects of humans, logical and analytical abilities and everything that tells about the three – what, why and how of individuals in life and certain situations.  



Being one of the four colleges of Delhi University that offers such courses, Institute of Home Economics is quiet favorable among female students, and the top reasons being the options of study, practical labs and metro connectivity. After all commuting facility is a must, especially for girls.

Institute-of-Home-Economics-1The Advisory System

We might have heard about the open door policies between Principal and students, but the policy is not applicable here. It’s not like that the students are not allowed to talk to their Principals; rather a communication system has been initiated by the college where one Teacher is responsible to have a periodic meeting with students. In these meetings students can share their views, have discussion or even talk on any pros and cons of college too.


The student-teacher interaction develops a rapport which helps students to talk about all their problems, no matter how personal they are. The initiative is as better as anything else can be, is open, acceptable, and perfect for a college to have.  


Institute-of-Home-Economics-2Life at IHE

With monthly magazine- Surbhi, newsletters and other club activities, life at IHE is happening. The new building which is almost ready to welcome fresh UG students who would be taking admissions via Delhi University Admission Process, here undoubtedly will have quality education, fun and memorable graduation days.


With courses which are focused on practicals, IHE provides opportunity for experiments with equipped labs in the new building. Girls, in the new building have already found their corners or so called Masti-point.


We asked Sanchita, student of IHE about her favorite ‘after the class place’, she mentioned, “Our group loves to sit in the new amphitheatre. It is in the new building and a perfect hide-out.”


The Institute provides every facility, both academically and non-academically, for students to learn, have fun and achieve their career goals.

If I want to get admission in BSC honours in mathematics in Delhi University on the basis of percentage scored in class 12th , then what all subjects can I register for the calculation of percentage to be written in Merit list ? Can I register with Mathematics, computer and chemistry ?

Apurv 16th Oct, 2019

Hello Anurag, Yes these three subjects are fine but you need to add one more subject in order to complete the best of four percentage. The rule is that you need one subject related to the course you are applying for, one language course(most of the students have english) and other two courses you can select as any two subjects with maximum marks.
