What to do after diploma in mechanical engineering?

Diploma in Mechanical Engineering
What to do after diploma in mechanical engineering? This is the question which every student has in his/her mind after graduation. On my previous website, a student asked me the same question in following manner:

"Hi friends, I am going to finish my diploma in mechanical engineering in a few months. I really don’t have any idea of what to do next? Should I go for job or should I continue to study and register myself for mechanical engineering degree? Can you please suggest me that what should I do after diploma in mechanical engineering. I have some financial issues as well, so I cannot continue studying without proper scholarship from some organization or college. These are hard times. Not only me but all my friends are also so confused at this stage. No one knows what to do after completing diploma in mechanical engineering. Some friends and family members suggest finding some good job while others suggest continuing studying further. Is there any benefit of continuing education after diploma? As you all are mechanical engineers so you might have some better ideas and suggestions for me. Kindly reply. I will really appreciate your help.

Kindly reply with all possible options and paths we can choose after completing diploma in mechanical engineering. Also please tell me the courses which i can choose after diploma. Thank you."


Here is my opinion on this topic:

I suggest you to continue education by either choosing the option of engineering degree, B Tech or any other post diploma courses. Engineering sector is all about personal growth, knowledge and experience. The more experienced and educated you are in your field, the more bright chances will be waiting for you in future. Don’t think of doing a job at this stage. Your educational qualification is not as good as it needs to be for a dream job at this stage.

As far as courses are concerned, you may choose any courses of your interest for engineering degree or B Tech. After getting degree in mechanical engineering you will have many options for jobs. You can get job offers from mechanical, production, automobile, food,  construction, power plant or cement industries etc.

  2. Try for a job in Reputed Organizations. in there you 'll have job growth.. (Don't matter about the starting salary). if not BE mech may be your right choice... But you said about your financial Problem..,, better you join a job, and you can do your BE Mech at Part Time... Now Part time BE's are available...

Dear neha i think this question is very common for all diplomatic student i'm also confuse about that but you told about some financial problem then if you got above 60% in your diploma than you get admission definitely in some of any government or self finance collage in your state but don't do job after finishing your diploma.and after or in running B.E you please do some good drawing class it is good for your career. :)

  27. Best advice is to join a job. you can continue your studies by part time in a AICTE approved college/universities.... Dont spare your money by doing regular B.E or B.Tech degree.
