Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, popularly known as IP University, will open three study centres - one each for indigenous literature; film and culture; and development and planning.
Vice-Chancellor Prof Dilip K Bandyopadhyay announced this on Monday at the university's ninth convocation held on its Dwarka campus.
Bandyopadhyay announced that the university plans to set up a design institute on its east campus.
Delhi Higher Education Minister A K Walia praised the university for its efforts. "At a time when public-private partnership models were floundering in other countries, IP University has set an example of success," he said.
Lieutenant-Governor Tejendra Khanna, who is the university Chancellor, said academic ambiance and infrastructure have always played a vital role in the growth of an institution.
During the convocation, 15,945 students received their degrees, 67 of them were given gold medals for their academic excellence, while 15 were honoured for getting 90 per cent or more marks.
