AMIE - equivalent to B.E or B.Tech - no need to attend college

In this week i was searching for information about AMIE. I found information in pieces from various sites then i thought i should write one post to help people to understand this concept.

What is AMIE?

AMIE stands for Associate Member of Institution of Engineers. Simply speaking, it is an engineering degree course recognized by all State Governments, Central Govt., UPSC etc as equivalent to B.E/B.Tech. That means, those who successfully complete AMIE will get equal opportunities for job as well as higher education, just like a B.E or B.Tech holder. The Institution of Engineers (India), the largest multidisciplinary body of engineers in the country is the body that prepares syllabus, conducts examination and issue certificates etc. of AMIE.

In short you become member of IE(Institution of Engineers) India and start reading books for syllabus given by them then appear for tests they conduct every year June,December. You just have to clear few subjects in 10-12 years time and you will become equivalent to B.E/B.tech sitting at home or parallely working with some company as you do not have to attend colleges.

This course is especially suitable for employed person, as they can study this course without being interfering their job, whether they are in India or abroad .

Who Can Study AMIE ?

His/her age shall be 18 years or above

Those who wish to do AMIE must passes any one of the following qualifications.

  1. He /she shall have passed 3 year diploma in branch of engineering/technology
    or equivalent diploma / certificate like Polytechnic.
    (No marks restriction)

OR

  1. +2/HSC/PDC with Physics, Chemistry& Maths with minimum 45% marks.

If you possess any qualification equivalent to the above, still then you are eligible to apply for AMIE.

Those who pursue AMIE after their Diploma course are usually known as Diploma Stream Students, and others are known as Non-Diploma Stream Students


SYLLABUS OF AMIE :

The syllabus of AMIE is more or less similar to B.E/B.Tech. But the number of subjects in AMIE is very less. The AMIE syllabus has two parts:- Section A and Section B (similar to First year , Second year etc. of any formal degree course). Those who join for AMIE should first study Section A subjects, and after passing Section B he should study Section B. In Section A we study some subjects which are fundamental to engineering. In section B, we make specialized study in our chosen branch of engineering. When a student clears all subjects in both sections A and B. he is said to have passed A.M.I.E examination and becomes a graduate engineer.

Based on ones qualification, the number of subjects that a student studies in Section A varies. A diploma holder need to study only 4 subjects in Section A, while a non-diploma/+2 holder studies 10 subjects in Section A.

Following are the subjects in Section A

  1. Fundamentals of Design and Manufacturing

  2. Material Science and Engineering

  3. Computing and Informatics

  4. Society and Environment

  1. Mechanical science

  2. Engineering Physics and Chemistry

  3. Engineering Drawing and Graphics

  4. Electronics and Instrumentation

  5. Engineering Mathematics

  6. Electrical Science.

On completion of section A, a student takes admission to Section B. In section B, student is asked to select a branch of engineering. Following are the engineering branches available.

  1. Electronics and communication Engineering

  2. Electrical Engineering

  3. Computer Science and Engineering

  4. Civil Engineering

  5. Mechanical Engineering

  6. Production Engineering

  7. Chemical Engineering

  8. Materials and Metallurgical Engineering

  9. Mining Engineering

  10. Production Engineering

  11. Textile Engineering

  12. Architectural Engineering.

Of the above engineering branches available, a student can choose ANY branch as he wishes, without any criteria. This is one of the attractions of AMIE. For example, a student studied Automobile engineering in Diploma level can choose Computer Science or Electronics etc in AMIE !!!!

Both Diploma and Non-diploma holders should study 9 subjects in Section B. In order to impart practical knowledge, the Institution of Engineers has included project work and lab experiments as part of section B syllabus.

In short, a +2 holder can complete AMIE by clearing just 10 + 9 = 19 subjects, whereas for a diploma holder, the total subject is 4 + 9 = 13 only.

The project work may be done in the same firm/company where the student is presently engaged in. For carrying out laboratory experiment, the Institution of Engineers will contact the authorities of some engineering college/similar technical institution nearest to the location of the student and make necessary arrangement. For this, a nominal fee of Rs 1000/- will be charged from the student.

DURATION of AMIE :

The attraction of AMIE is its flexibility in completion time. Apart from conventional courses, the AMIE doesn’t have a fixed ‘completion time’. Normally 6 years are available for clearing Section A subjects and another 6 years for completing Section B.

HOW TO JOIN AMIE :

For appearing AMIE examinations, one should get membership with Institution of Engineers. In order to get membership you should apply in the prescribed application form.
