Eligibility for Diploma


In order to get admission into the diploma stream the minimum qualification required I to clear the tenth standard/Secondary School Leaving Certificate (SSLC) or an equivalent examination, with not les than 35 percent in subjects including Science and Mathematics. The examination to enter the Diploma section is conducted by various private as well as government Polytechnic Colleges.

After getting the Diploma degree a student is entitled to take direct admission in the second year of B.Tech as lateral entry. This fast-track admission is possible only after writing the LET, the Lateral Entry Test. If you do well on this test, you can apply to B.Tech / B.E programmes. 

B.Tech./B.E. programme and diploma programme have almost the similar content but the level of syllabus content is higher in the latter. However, diploma students may have an advantage in terms of the number of government jobs in the various departments like water board, irrigation, PWD and many other. They also have a strong fundamental base of the course over the students pursuing regular B.Tech/B.E students who directly enter after their twelfth grade.
