Career Question and Answer- Distance Engineering Degree

There are many people who are wondering whether distance learning engineering courses are available or valid in India and my this blog post I am specifically focussing on this particular thing.

Question 1.
Are engineering programmes (Diploma, Degree and masters ) available in distance mode at India and is it valid?
Answer: No. Few years back, YCMOU (Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University), IGNOU (Indira Gandhi National Open University), Thapar Institute of Engineering (now a deemed University), KSOU (Karnataka State Open University) and few other deemed universities offered distance learning engineering courses. However AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education - who maintains standard of engineering and management education in India and approves courses and institutes ) prohibited to offer any engineering programmes in India under distance mode. Hence, no Diploma BE/B.Tech. can be offered in distance mode by any institute or university. However AICTE is framing a guideline and on the basis of it soon engineering programmes will be available under distance mode.
Question

 2: I have completed my ITI/ 10+2 with physics chemistry and mathematics/ Diploma in engineering and working now. I cannot leave my job and do a full time course. What alternatives I have.
Answer: yes, there is an alternative. In India, Chartered engineering courses are available and prevails for many years. These chartered engineering courses have equivalent status of bachelors of Engineering/ Bachelor of Technology courses. You have to pass section A and Section B of these examinations. It is exactly like Chartered Accountant system.

Question 3: Which are those approved Chartered Engineering degree institutes ?
1. Institute of Engineers.
This offers more than 13 stream of engineering from civil to mechanical to various other disciplines. However it is open only for Diploma in Engineering degree holders. You need to enrol for AMIE (Associate Membership in Institute of Engineers). After passing both section A & B which takes around 2 1/2 years, you get AMIE which is equivalent to degree in engineering.

2. IETE (Institute of Electronics  and Telecommunications Engineering), Delhi
It offers DipIETE I e. Diploma in electronics and Telecommunications Engineering which takes around 3 years to complete and it is equivalent to to regular full time polytechnic Diploma in engineering.
It also offers AMIETE which is equivalent to BE/ B.Tech.
A SSC pass can do DipIETE and a 10+2 Diploma ITI holders can do AMIETE

3. Indian Institute of Industrial Engineers (IEEE), Belapur, Navi Mumbai
It offers AMIEE which is equivalent of B.E. in industrial engineering. 

4. Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IME), Mumbai
It offers both Diploma and graduation level associate chartered engineering degree.

5. Indian Institute of Architect
It offers Diploma and Bachelors level engineering chartered programme in Architecture which is equivalent to B.Arch (Bachelor of Architecture).

6. Indian Institute of Chemical Engineers (IIChE), Mumbai
It offers Associateship which is equivalent to BE in Chemical engineering. Only B.Sc.(Chemistry) and Diploma in engineering holders can pursue this programme.

7. AeSI (Aeronautical Society of India)
Aeronautical Society of India offers associate ship in engineering degree in aeronautical and aerospace which is open for people employed in similar sector. Today many private institute offers training programme and exam from this and making lot of money from students.


Question 4: Does it has acceptance and approval in India and abroad ?
Answer: As far as recognition concerned yes, ministry of HRD has approved all of the programmes mentioned above. After passing associate ship from these institutes you may apply for competitive exams of UPSC (Union Public Service Commission ) like IES (Indian Engineering Services ) CSE (Civil Service examinations ) , CDS (Combined Defence Services) and also of state services. Even IIT and other universities accept these qualifications for higher studies. There is no discrimination done. In private sector you may face problem but it depends. I think it is responsibility of the government and these institutes to spread awareness. For higher education and job abroad - It may or may not be accepted.

Question 5: Is it easy to pass these degrees?
Answer: Not really. It is as tough as a CA exam.

Question 6: How much these cost?
Answer: Much less. In less than 40000 you can complete your entire education

Question 7: CMJ University Meghalaya is offering industry integrated engineering distance bachelors and masters degree. This is a private approved university. Is it valid?
Answer: No. CMJ is just selling degree. AICTE has prohibited offering any engineering distance learning programmes. It is violation of the rule and also in private sector and for job as well as higher education abroad they mostly prefer NAAC accredited A level university. Don't go for easy and short cut way it is not good.
All valid questions and comments are welcome.

Hi Friends,
Although the above qualification are valid as equivalent to engineering degree, still AICTE is reviewing their programmes and the recognition is on gold for current year till further notice
please refer


Still, all the qualification upto June 2012 stands valid and will stand valid in future too

      Yes, it is valid but if you are in government sector you must ensure that:
      1. It has AICTE approval
      2. It is approved by DEB
      3. It is awarded without violating territorial jurisdiction
      In that case, all the 3 universities are worst to be selected. You should prefer IGNOU

    1. the certificate they are showing is of a charitable society. Even you can register it by spending around 3000 Rs. Can you establish a university in Rs. 3000?
      A university can be established only by the government. even if a private person invest money such law related to the university should be passed in the parliament.
      About ISO, even a panwala can get ISO certificate.
      NCODL is not an approved body only DEB of UGC can approve a university.
      You can send an email to Delhi police under the Information Technology Act for online fraud and check law in UAE. You should have pursued degree from AIOU (Allamma Iqbal Open University)
      http://www.aiou.edu.pk/
      They offer
      Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com)
      B.S (Chemistry)
      Bachelor in Mass Communication
      Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA)
      Bachelor of Library and Information Sciences
      Bachelor of Dars-e-Nizami
      Bachelor of Science (Computer Science)
      Bachelor of Arts (General Group)
      B.S (Micro Biology) 4 Years

      You first send them notice through email and ask them to refund money else tell them that you will file a police complaint. Let me know if you need any help from me

    I usually read many of your views and comments and I appriciate that you are doing a great job on guiding students and working professionals like me.

    I'm presently working in govt. sector and i'm MBA-IT from SMU but for promotion I need MCA so pls guide me about this.

    I have two suitable universty learning centres near by i.e. Guru Jambheshwar University of Science & Technology and 2nd is SAM HIGGINBOTTOM INSTITUTE OF AGRICULTURE, TECHNOLOGY & SCIENCES” (Formerly Allahabad Agricultural Institute), (Deemed-to-be-University).

    I'm little confused about their reputation and MCA degree validation in govt. sector so pls guide me about this.

    Although i checked their UGC and DEC approval it seems to be ok but you better know.

    Aside this i read on internet that "Sam Higginbottom Institute of
    Agriculture, Technology & Sciences- Deemed University Approved by Joint Committee of UGC-AICTE-DEC, New Delhi
    Formally Allahabad Agricultural Institute – Deemed University
    Established under Section 3 of UGC Act 1956, NAAC B++"

    But on its regular website "http://www.shiats.edu.in/aboutus.asp" i found "Being a Deemed-to-be University, SHIATS does not require any approval from All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) for technical and Management courses and is empowered to award degrees as specified and notified under section 22 of University Grant Commission (UGC) Act 1956 (Notification No F.2-1/2006 U.3(A) dated 7th April 2006) issued by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Department of Secondary & Higher Education, Govt. of India, New Delhi."

    1. Hi,
      Ministry of HRD had asked all institutes including institution of engineers (AMIE) and institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers (AMIETE and DipIETE) however the matter went to court and it is subjudice, till now, the court has asked to continue with the recognition.
      IETE does not offer any full time course. It is a chartered engineering courses same as CA / ICWA
      IETE has exam centre abroad and you may do the course from there. Further, you need to check in the country where you are working and whether they are accepting this qualification as equivalent to Diploma in engineering or BE/ B.Tech
      Please refer following link
      http://iete-elan.ac.in/elan/recognition.htm

      http://www.iete.org/statusRecogn.htm


      As of now IETE is not offering any courses outside India and exam centres are available in India only.
      The courses is in distance/ online mode, you need to come down for exam only. You may utilise your annual leave to appear for exam in India which is available in all major cities.

      Alternatively you may pursue AMIE which is more stringent and has more value. It has exam centres in Abu dhabi, Bahrain, Doha and Kuwait. It is also recognized in UK, USA, Australia, Bahrain and Canada
      Please refer
      https://www.ieindia.org/RECOGNITION.aspx
      https://www.ieindia.org/PDF_IMAGES/ACADEMIC/exam_centres.pdf

      Another alternative is BS from BITS Pilani which does not have government recognition but acceptable by most of the companies for private sector jobs. The course it bit costly and you can do it from your work It is WILP (Work Integrated Learning Programme). It is engineering programme but not an engineering degree.

  31. Hello Govind,

    I am having almost 4 years of experience while working with an MNC in technical Domain. I recently completed my MBA from Pondicherry University(twinning programme). I now want to change my career path from technical to Managerial. Can you please let me know the following:
    1. How should I go about in making this career shift? What would be your suggested approach?
    2. Now that I wish to switch from technical to managerial will my 4 years of technical experience become irrelevant?

    1. I do not know what has been your work profile. Can you please check with HR department of your organisation and ask the career change you want to make.
      Not really, in many organisation, there is a role change happens with the time and in fact in few roles, technical experience also preferred for managerial roles.
      Part time MBA may or may not work when you do a complete career change, it majorly depends upon your organisation to evaluate and accept it. For the lateral hirings (i.e. experienced hiring, in most of the cases, a part time or full time MBA becomes irrelevant.

  32. Dear Sir,

    I have 3 years diploma and working in Saudi Arabia , I want to study BCA or Bsc-IT / Bsc-CS in distance mode from Here ,Kindly suggest to me the valid state/private universities offer these programs in Saudi Arabia those universities are fulfilling the Guidelines of UGC ( As in your blogs not violating Territorial jurisdiction , Own employed staff and Study Center rules) I gone through SMU 's and KSOU's Website and found that they are offering these programs in Saudi Arabia but not sure about their recognition and study center status

    About IGNOU's Study center they offer these courses through Partner Institutions or private agencies like "Educational Consulting and Guidance Services" (ecgservices.net) So please confirm me study through these partner institutions from abroad are valid in the case of IGNOU

    Thanks & Regards

    1. better opt IGNOU do not opt any other institutes as government has not authorised them to offer courses outside India, in fact UAE governments have also started crackdown on such centres.

      Well, you should opt an institute in India and appear for exam at the end of each year or all three years together at the end of 3 year. This will be more valid and cost effective too
      You may opt University of Madras, Annamalai University, Bharati Vidyapeeth etc

    1. Hi,
      The institute is good, reputed however, the BITS is not authorised to offer such programme. The programme is very costly and if your organisation really do not need an engineering degree you may opt other available option.
      You may also opt AMIETE which is equivalent to bE/ B.Tech

  54. Hi Govind,

    We are really proud on your initiate to provide best guidance to our society.

    I can't understand the concept of our GOI to promote technical or management courses through online. Most of the person facing same problem for their development like poor family background during schooling or university time and after that we don't have any platform to do online approved courses.

    I was surfing on Google and found:

    http://nptel.ac.in/

    I believe it is already being approved and having good recognition.

    Anyway Please post something If have an option for ONLINE ENGINEERING DEGREE COURSES from India.

    God Bless You !!!
