Advantages of pursuing further studies after Polytechnic Diploma

B.Tech Lateral Entry Scheme

The most popular option for Polytechnic Diploma holders, especially those from engineering domains, is to take up B.Tech or B.E. For this, candidates need to appear for the respective Engineering Entrance Test for the college and course they want to join. Many engineering colleges offer lateral entry to Engineering Diploma holders. Lateral entry means you can join the engineering program directly in the second year or the third semester of B.Tech / B.E. program.

AMIE Certification: Another option for Diploma holders from engineering background is to take up the AMIE Certification Course. A.M.I.E (Associate Member of the Institutions of Engineers) certification is a professional certification equivalent to B.E. Degree. The candidates who complete the AMIE course are awarded AMIE certificate by the Institute of Engineering, India. The AMIE exam consists of two sections and it takes around 4 years to complete the program. However, Polytechnic Diploma holders do not need to appear for a few papers from Section A, i.e., Project Work. Therefore, they can earn the AMIE certification in mere 3 years.
