The Diploma in Engineering or Diploma in Technical Education or Technical Diploma is a program focused on practical and skills-oriented training. It is a technical course that only covers the essentials when ranked with an undergraduate engineering degree. It aims to provide students with industry or job related basic engineering knowledge, scientific skills, computing and analysis, mathematical techniques, a sound knowledge of English to communicate in the field and ability to apply problem-solving techniques. Its duration is minimum 3 years. Many countries in the world recognize it as equivalent to pre-engineering or bridging course when considered for continuing studies in engineering related bachelors or associate degree programs. After successful completion of diploma in engineering course, students can either continue further engineering studies in undergraduate level or get employment as technicians, technologists, supervisors, superintendents, foremen, machinist, workshop technicians, draftsman, station technicians (energy, thermal, aeronautical), automobile technicians, maintenance and service technicians, equipment mechanics and technicians, CAD/CAM programmer, agricultural overseers, instrument technicians, junior instructors, manufacturing, tool and die designers, electricians. There are numerous opportunities available to students after high school. Some people prefer to travel overseas, while others would rather study at home. Whatever one chooses, if earning a diploma is your aim, there is a good likelihood that you will choose from the few possibilities that the entire globe has to offer.
The mission of the Department of Diploma is to provide quality education to prepare nationally competitive undergraduate and post graduate student students for a successful career in Diploma; to provide advanced skills and knowledge in state-of-the-art research and design in sub-areas of Diploma for graduate and post graduate students; and to provide service to the university, engineering profession, and the public.
