|Since you had completed your diploma in mechanical you might be knowing both the fields as well. Production engineering is basically derived from mechanical engineering here you learn only about production in industries and your jobs will only confined to industries but if you go furthur in mechanical b-tech you will be having lots of oppurtinities both in industries and outside you can also join in civil fields since you will be in core branch.|

|There is not a big difference between production and mechanical engineering.|
Production branch is a subset of Mechanical branch. The syllabus for both the branches is almost same.

I am a Bachelor in Industrial and Production Engineering. My passion was to do Mechanical Engineering. But due to non-availability of seats at a convenient Colleges, i settled for I&PE since it is equivalent. After joining the course, I made a quick and thorough check for difference between Mechanical and Production Engineering. Production Engineering derives Core and applicable subjects from Mechanical Engineering and includes relevant Management subjects to make the course suitable for people who in fact can work in Manufacturing / Industrial environment as application Engineers. Whereas Mechanical Engineering is a Core subject and its applicability is virtually vast.
But nevertheless, when it comes to specific to your case, choosing the Engineering subject is largely dependent on your career goal. But Remember, I have a saying from myself - "Study the Best Subject, If not, Study best the Subject".
All the best.
