Apart from the medical, engineering, charted accountancy, law and many such wonderful areas, diploma course in engineering are also very famous among the youth which involves subjects based on the fundamental engineering concepts quite different from the core engineering aspects focusing more on the practical knowledge. Diploma being a professional course is planned in such a way that students may get a job in the field of engineering after getting the degree for diploma. Those who couldn’t get an admission in B.E.or B.Tech programmes, get themselves enrolled in a Diploma of Engineering course, as it facilitates them a second chance to get transferred into the second year of the B.Tech or B.E course as lateral entry. This, in effect, means the student may not have to take the eleventh and twelfth class exams and they can join the diploma courses just after their high school examinations. So, instead of the last two years of school and four years of the degree engineering course (a total of six years), the same qualification is achieved in the same amount of time with three years of a diploma course and three years of the degree course after the direct transfer. Entry to these diploma courses are channeled through entrance exams like JEE Main (previously AIEEE)JEE Advanced (previously IIT-JEE), and individual state and college Common Entrance Tests can be bypassed and avoided.
