Diploma in Engineering deals with skills-oriented training, focusing primarily on technical expertise and engineering skills. It is a technical degree taken up at the undergraduate level. Candidates who wish to pursue the course can take up the course after completing class 10. Candidates should score at least 50% marks in the last qualifying exam from a recognized institute with physics, chemistry, and mathematics subjects as compulsory subjects.
The DE syllabus consists of all the DE core subjects for various specializations, DE subjects for labs, DE subjects that are common for the specializations, and subjects that are elective. The same has been discussed in the following piece for the candidates who are willing to pursue a DE course and are wondering about the DE subjects and DE syllabus.
Candidates who wish to pursue the course can check the Diploma in Engineering syllabus on the basis of the Semesters.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for the first year has been listed in the pointers below on the basis of Semester 1 and Semester 2.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for the second year has been listed in the pointers below on the basis of Semester 3 and Semester 4.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for the third year has been listed in the pointers below on the basis of Semester 5 and Semester 6.
Since the Diploma in Engineering course revolves around several specializations which have been divided into the subjects that are taught in the course duration. Candidates are advised to check it based on their preferences. The same has been listed in the table below.
|Specialization||Diploma in Engineering Subjects|
|Electronics & Communication Engineering|
Diploma in Engineering subjects is divided into core subjects and elective subjects. Core subjects are the subjects that are compulsory and candidates will have to study them. However, on the other hand, candidates can choose some subjects in their entire course structure that are called elective or optional subjects. Apart from the elective and the core subjects, candidates are also required to practice the lab subjects. Lab subjects are important as they help the candidates to get shaped according to industry standards.
During the course of study, institutes aim to offer varied knowledge to candidates pertaining to different fields. Candidates who are aiming to pursue a diploma in engineering have to study certain common subjects in all years to have a better hold and understanding of a specific field.
Along with core subjects, candidates are always given the option to choose from a list of subjects during the course of their study. In simple words, optional subjects are the subjects that the candidates can choose from all the list of subjects. The optional subjects are usually scoring in nature and yield high scores to the candidates. Since a diploma in engineering has lots of specializations that can be referred to, therefore we have listed optional subjects of some of the major diploma in engineering courses.
Since a Diploma in Engineering is more on the technical front, some institutes, along with core and optional subjects, aim to provide hands-on experience of theoretical knowledge through lab subjects. The lab subjects vary depending upon the Diploma in Engineering course type, institutes from which the candidate is taking up the course, optionally selected by the candidates.
Candidates who are willing to pursue a diploma in engineering course will have to choose a specialization to pursue the course specializations play a vital role in the course life of the candidate. Specialization increases productivity and provides a comparative advantage for a company or economy. Therefore candidates should check the list of specializations based on their preferences.
Candidates who are willing to pursue a diploma in engineering course and not able to pursue it through offline means can opt for the course through distance learning mode. Distance learning platforms serve the same purpose and motive to the candidates as same as who are willing to pursue the Diploma in Engineering course through offline mode. The examinations are taken on the basis of Semesters and the duration lies 4 years.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for Distance Programs in the first year of the course has been listed in the table below divided into Semesters 1 and Semester 2.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for Distance Programs in the second year of the course has been listed in the table below divided into Semester 3 and Semester 4.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for Distance Programs in the fourth year of the course has been listed in the table below divided into Semester 5 and Semester 6.
The Diploma in Engineering syllabus for Distance Programs in the fourth year of the course has been listed in the table below divided into Semester 7 and Semester 8.
The admission into Diploma in Engineering course is done on the basis of merit as well as entrance exams. Candidates who are interested in taking admission into the Diploma in Engineering course through an entrance examination that includes Delhi CET, JEECUP, BCECE, AP POLYCET, Jharkhand PECE, TS POLYCET, etc. candidates can click on the listed exams below to check the detailed syllabus of the respective exams.
Some of the topics that are important for the entrance examinations of the Diploma in Engineering course have been listed below.
Candidates who aim in pursuing a diploma in engineering course are advised to check the important reference textbooks as given in the table below based on the preferences. It is advised to the candidates to refer to those textbooks that cover the full syllabus of the course and are written by registered authors.
