is the Eligibility ?
A3. To be eligible
for a diploma in engineering, one must clear the 10th Std. board exam
successfully. Admission is based on marks scored in Std. X board exam.
To be eligible for bachelor's degree course, one must clear the 12th std.
board exam successfully in the science stream with Physics, Chemistry
and Maths as compulsory subjects. Several states and IITs have an entrance
exam for admission into engineering, colleges in other states grant admission
based on marks scored in 12th Std. exam, particularly in the subjects
of Physics, Chemistry and Maths. Diploma holders can also get direct admission
into second year of engineering in the same stream in which they have
completed their diploma. For a master's level course, one must complete
the bachelor's degree program successfully. Further Studies After graduating
students can go in for postgraduate studies in India or abroad that will

What are the Career Prospects After graduating in engineering ?
A4. Candidates can
either join the private sector, public sector or the government. In the
government engineers can appear for the "Indian Engineering Services"
exam conducted by the UPSC at the national level or join various departments
at the state level through their respective exams. The armed forces also
induct a number of engineering graduates every year. Other departments
such as the civil aviation department also recruit engineers. Engineers
can also join the Merchant Navy. Detailed career prospects are mentioned
in respective articles on various branches of engineering. Future Scenario
The reform process has seen India integrating with the global economy.
Globalisation and liberalisation have seen the entry of multinational
companies into India in all sectors . Due to the huge potential for infrastructure
development there is a good demand for engineers. Telecommunication, electronics,
computers and chemical engineers are likely to be in good demand. Mechanical
and civil engineers can also look forward to ample job opportunities.
