The Diploma in Engineering is a technical degree below the undergraduate rank which aims to provide students with some basic knowledge of engineering, scientific computing, mathematical techniques, a sound knowledge of English to communicate in the job field and ability to apply the basic problem solving techniques. The duration of this course is 3 years. Many countries in the world recognize it as equivalent to Inter-Science or Pre-Engineering for further studies purpose.

After the successful completion of the course, students can either continue further Engineering studies in undergraduate level or get employment as supervisors, foremen, sales engineers, workshop technicians, draughtsman, service station managers, auto engineers, agricultural overseers, farm managers, junior instructors, workshop superintendents etc. So this has become a trend to undergo diploma courses after completion of secondary courses. This requires less investment in comparison to engineering course and easy for the parents to arrange funds for diploma courses in comparison to degree courses. Market demand is also much higher for diploma engineers in our country.
