What is an Engineering Course?

Engineering is an application of math and science to solve problems. It involves designing, testing, building machines, and other useful items that make life easy and more sustainable. While the aspirant who wants to pursue a career in engineering has to opt for different engineering courses depending on their education.

Basic Eligibility and Course Duration for Engineering Courses/List of Engineering Courses

Depending on your education qualification, you can opt for a diploma, graduate, post-graduate degree, and even a doctoral course as well. In India, there are a lot of institutes like ITI Colleges, Polytechnic Colleges, IIT, NIT, IIIT, State and Central Universities, and some private colleges and universities are there from where you can pursue these courses.

Here is a list different engineering courses:

Engineering Courses Qualification Duration Course Fees
Diploma in Engineering 10th / 12th 3 Years INR 10,000 – 2,00,000
