Diploma Engineering through Distance-Mode

Date: 31 Mar 2011    Group: Education    Category: Professional Courses   

I am from Kolkata,West Bengal.I am thinking of doing Diploma in Engineering from a local study center in my place .The diploma is being offered from EIILM University (Sikkim).
I am not sure about the recognition of this diploma or the EIILM university?
Can any of the Respected members of this forum please throw some light on these and tell me whether it will be wise to do diploma from such a private university from a study center outside the state of Sikkim?
I am also providing the website of the study center and the University for everyone's convenience.
Study center web address -
University webpage -
Another funny thing about the above university is that when you go to contacts They don't provide any telephone numbers!! Check here -
Only a email address is provided .I have written to that email about 3 weeks back and still got no response!!
Please guide me and suggest me whether these are all fraud?
I will be greatly obliged for any helpful suggestions.

If you are from Kolkata then it will be very easy for you to go through the selection test i.e. Joint entrance Examination for the Diploma Holders ( poly-technique) which is being held every year after the Madhayamik Examination (Std X).

Regarding your specified course check whether it is recognized by AICTE or by WBUT because if it is not so then it will be a trouble effort for you to get through a job by the certificates provided by them.

It is very strange to hear from you as an educated person your not even aware about the institution and the course in which you are studying is genuine or not. Well EIILM University is an UGC approved and recognized University and one of the finest University in India situated in Sikkim. It offers both regular and distance mode courses through various colleges and study centers across the country. The diploma courses offered by this University are also recognized by UGC. You can visit the headquarters of the University to clarify the further doubts and you can get necessary information form the study center at where you are pursuing the course. Here below am providing the website of the University's distance education.
