List of Engineering Courses after 12th


After 12th you have the option of pursuing either a Diploma Program or a Bachelor’s Degree course. For most of the Engineering courses at Bachelor’s level, candidates have to appear for an entrance exam to secure a seat in an Engineering college. Most engineering colleges, including the IITs and IIITs, have JEE Main and JEE Advanced exams as their criteria for admission.

IIT admissions are done on the basis of JEE Advanced and IIIT admissions are done on the basis of JEE Main. JEE Main was conducted by CBSE once a year till 2018. From 2019, the JEE Main exam will be conducted by the NTA twice in a year – in January and in April. JEE Main admit card for the January session will be released in December and for April exam will be released in March. NTA will announce JEE Main Result for January exam at the end of same month. Result of April exam will be announced in the end of the same month, as well.

Here are the degree and diploma course in engineering after 12th:

Bachelors in Engineering / Bachelors in Technology

These are the four-year Bachelor Degree Program for student after class 12th. Most institutes invite for an admission process, including written test, for qualification. Writing the National Level Joint Entrance Exam – the JEE Exam – is the most rational choice.
