There are lot of students in our country who wanted to become engineer. But some time due to JEE ranking or economic conditions or any other issues not able to do so. After that when they decided to do so they didn’t aware how to go ahead. Finally their dream not fulfilled due to not knowing of some information. If you are one of them then you should read this full article.

What is A.M.I. E?

AMIE stands for Associate Member of Institution of Engineers.

AMIE is a B.Tech level examination in engineering, recognized by all State Governments, Central Govt., AICTE, UPSC etc as equivalent to B.E/B.Tech. That means, those who pass AMIE examination will get equal opportunities for job as well as higher education in both Govt. and private sectors, 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 authority that prepares syllabus, conducts examination and issue certificates etc. of AMIE.

Engineering through Distance learning

The attraction with AMIE is that, it is a recognized engineering degree course that can be studied in distance education mode. Since this course does not demand any class room attendance, anyone who meets the specified eligibility criteria can become a graduate engineer in the least possible time and expense! Since few institutions arrange AMIE Postal Class, this course is especially suitable for employed person, as they can study this course without being interfering with their job, whether they are in India or abroad.

AMIE-Who is eligible?

Those who wish to do AMIE must have passed A recognized 3-year Polytechnic Diploma or its equivalent in any branch of engineering. Those who completed training from Ordnance Factory or Similar Industry are also eligible.

Any educational qualifications equivalent to the above, are also eligible to apply for AMIE.

Those who pursue AMIE after their Diploma course are usually known as Diploma Stream Students (Senior Technician members).

Branches Available:

Following engineering branches are available for study

1. Chemical Engineering

2. Civil Engineering

3. Computer Science and Engineering

4. Electrical Engineering

5. Electronics & Communication Engineering

6. Mechanical Engineering

7. Materials and Metallurgical Engineering

8. Mining Engineering

9. Production Engineering

10. Textile Engineering


The syllabus of AMIE is similar to B.E/B.Tech. 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 and clear all subjects in Section A. Based on one’s qualification, the total number of subjects in Section A varies.

After passing Section A, he should study Section B. The total number of subjects in Section B is 9.

Diploma holder should study just 13 papers to clear AMIE

In Section A we study 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 qualified graduate engineer.


The duration of AMIE is flexible. For completing Section A and B, maximum time allowed is six years each. (So total 12 years). Though this is the maximum allowed duration, a student who systematically studies the course can successfully finish the course in a shorter period. Generally students cleared it in 3 yrs.


The examinations are conducted in every June and December in all major cities in India. All enrolled studets can appear for examination in any center convenient to them.


The fees depends on the mode of your study.
