Dear aspirant

Thank you for approaching counsellors at Mera career guide. You can very well do a Diploma in Mechanical engineering after 12th class and that from your background with Science, maths, and computer science. Traditionally students choose to study Diploma right after their 10th class so that they dont tend to study 11th and 12th class usually. This was because after studying a three year diploma most students will either start working at a company or instead go into engineering colleges to study Engineering through lateral entry system. lateral entry system means if you have completed a three year Diploma already then you can join second year of an Engineering directly and finish this Engineering degree within three years. Students with a BA/ BSc background also take this lateral entry route to study Engineering. Similarly, if you have plans to do an Engineering degree in future, a Diploma is of very help.

Therefore you can very well choose to study a Diploma after 12th standard maths science and computer science subject group and it is necessarily not that students should take only the commerce group. In fact students from a commerce group are mostly not preferred for certain types of Diploma programs like mechanical, electrical or electronics. This is mainly because as they have not studied physics and chemistry they cannot understand certain technical concepts especially when they study material engineering subject as part of their Diploma program. However they can choose to do other types of Diploma. So be relaxed that with your subject background at school, you can very well start Diploma in mechanical Engineering.

I can give you some of the top institutes list for Diploma in Mecahnical Engineering
1. Indian Institution of Engineers IIE, New Delhi
2. Sharda polytechnic institute, New Delhi
3. Dr K.N. Modi University, Jaipur

11. Delhi polytechnic institute Government institute, New Delhi
12. Theerthanker Mahaveer University, Moradabad
