Please guide me regarding my degree options. With this percentage, can I get admission into any part time degree course here, or an engineering degree in any other State?
One way of doing a degree is enrolling for Associate Membership of an institute, which offers engineering degree by an external examination system. These institutes, like Institute of Engineers and Institution of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineers conduct various examinations. After enrollment, you will have to study at home, and then appear for the examinations. On passing the examination, you will be offered an Associate Membership certificate, which is equivalent to a degree. For e.g., Associate Member of Institution of Engineers (AMIE) is equivalent to a degree in engineering and Associate Membership of the Institution of Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering is equivalent to a degree in Electronics and Telecommunication. Institution of Engineers offers membership in various branches in Engineering and Electronics & Telecommunication is one of the branches. However, to be eligible for enrollment, you have to hold an engineering job. For details, contact: Institute of Engineers 15, Haji Ali Park, Keshavarao Khadye Marg, Mahalaxmi, Mumbai - 400 034. Institution of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering Lokmanya Videsh Sanchar Bhawan, Ground Floor, Kashinath Dharu Road, Prabhadevi, Dadar, Mumbai - 400 028. With your marks, it is definitely possible to get admission in any part-time engineering degree course or into the second year of a 4-year degree course in colleges in other states, under management quota seats. For admission into a part-time degree course, you will have to be engaged in an engineering job. Course expenses for management quota seats in other states is very high. Admission fees could be a few lakhs of rupees and tuition and other fees would be around Rs 70,000 p.a. However, expenses in Government run engineering colleges are much less.
