AMIE vs B.Tech. or BE

A Fact that if AMIE is to be De-Recognized then almost 85% of the Engineering Colleges must be Shut down and De-Recognized prior to that , After reading the following I think one will be able to take proper decision.
 AMIE Civil Engineering
1) In AMIE one has to write a paper of Full Paper of 100 Marks in 3hr There is no Internal Marks, and Pass Marks 50
In BE/B.TECH. one has to write a paper of 70 Marks, 30 Marks is of Internal Assessment of the College, Pass Marks is 40 out of Total 100 (70+30), In Most of the Colleges one can easily get 20 out of 30 even without writing anything in the Internal, that means they only need 20 Marks out of 100 Virtually to pass a Subject.2) In AMIE Question Standards are much much tougher than BE/B.TECH. as most of the papers are set by prominent Professional and Person from Reputed Institutions/Universities . It is very hard to even get pass marks. All questions are in depth and unified all over the country.
In BE/B.TECH. questions are set by different universities, questions not being uniform all over the country. If the Question Standards are compared with that of the AMIE , BE/B.TECH Questions will fall as sub-standard.3) In AMIE one has to give exam not at Home Centre, so there is no chance of Cheating and Getting Marcy, hence the Exams are Clean, and the marks secured by students are due to their own knowledge, not by copying or cheating
In BE/B.TECH. one has to give exam in the Home Centre, and lots of Cheating in the Exam Hall goes on, and as the students are of their own college they tend to Marcy them and even allow them intentionally, hence most of them have High Marks but Shallow Knowledge on the Subjects.
Advantages of AMIE over BE/B.TECH.4) In the case of the most of the Diploma Engineers who are employed in different Companies and Government Sector they are not able to Pursue Degree in regular B.E./B.TECH. due to their Day Job can Carry on their Degree through AMIE, if AMIE. is De-recognized then the Diploma Engineers will not be able to further Study and it will void the Fundamental Right of “Right To Education” of Indian Constitution.

5) AMIE can be done only by the person who are employed in the Engineering Field, hence an AMIE passed Engineer will have a Degree backed up with Years of Experience, which makes them much more Industry Ready, than fresher BE/B.TECH. with No Experience.

6) The Total Cost of completing AMIE at the present day will be less than Rs. 25000/- whereas that for BE/B.TECH. is about Rs. 4,50,000/- at minimum.

7) The quality of AMIE student and Studies can be judged by an practical example that most of the Government Engineers in various sectors are from reputed Institutions like IIT’s, IISc, A.M.I.E. and NIT’s , percentage of BE/B.TECH. in Government Job other than that from reputed institutions are very less. Government Engineering jobs are very hard to get and Recruitment are highly competitive and this tells the all story of the Quality of the AMIE

8) Indian Engineering Degrees was not recognized in other countries like USA,UK etc. before the Indian became a member of Washington Accord recently, but AMIE was recognized from the very start in all other major countries like UK, USA etc.

9) Institution of Engineers (India) has got members who are of Top Class in their Field, and that is why Quality in Technical Knowledge is always maintained to a High Standard in AMIE

Misconception about AMIE

1) AMIE is Distance Education – Not True, AMIE is a Degree provided by Professional Society

2) There is No Practical and Laboratory Experiments done in AMIE– Not True, In AMIE there are 12 Laboratory Experiments covering all subjects feasible to done Laboratory Experiments each containing at least Three to Four Sub Experiments, that means it is equivalent to about 40 Experiments of BE/B.TECH. including Surveying also. There is also Project Work.
