He said the intake capacity of seats for diploma engineering programme is around 60 students per branch.As of now the students of almost three batches are pursuing the said programmes."But these students are not provided the facilities which are given to other students in the university," they said.The students said the University administration has constructed around a dozen tin sheds which are used as lecture halls for diploma students."Till date the classes for diploma candidates are being taken in steel sheds. We are facing inconvenience in summers as well as in winters," a group of aggrieved students told KNO."We approached University administration with our request to shift us to a building but nothing happened till date," they said. The students enrolled in polytechnic college IUST accused the university administration of giving step motherly treatment to them."Few years ago two new academic blocks were made functional but we are attending our classes in steel sheds," they said.The students said the university administration in past years claimed to construct academic blocks for students and polytechnic students will be shifted to permanent buildings on priority."But it was mere an eye wash for. Few academic blocks were made functional but we were not preferred to be shifted there," the students said.
