AMIE and BE both are going to get you the job. Most of the BE is a good option because you can get hands on for most of the stuff under college. AMIE is more suitable if you're already working and just want the degree along with your job experience. If you are done with the diploma then the most obvious way to do things is finish with engineering. And then you can get campus placement. If you get placed this way the career is going to be set. You don't have to struggle in later part of the life. So I think you should go for BE only for the reason of campus placement which you may not be getting with AMIE most of the time. Also make sure you do Mtech if you didnt get the job after the AMIE degree or IETE degree.

B.Tech and AMIE are both the same qualification. I suggest you go for B.Tech course either regular or part time. In AMIE, one disadvantage is the hands on experience is not there or if there is any, it is not much. The industry generally prefers Engineering degree holders over the AMIE candidates. AMIE is useful if you are already employed and want to increase your qualification. My sincere advise for you is to go for a regular or part time B.Tech course.

AMIE and B.E./B.Tech. are equivalent degrees. B.E./B.Tech. are better than AMIE in case completed from a reputed institute. Merely managing to have a B.E./B.Tech. degree from any run of the mill private college by securing admission under management quota will not add much value to the credentials of the candidate in the job market. In my opinion, one of the better option is to find a job on the basis of completing diploma course and then do AMIE simultaneously.

The choice is yours. However, it would be better to persue for a regular BE degree from a recognised university. In case, you continue your studies with a reputed Engineering - college, you will avail of oppurtunity of Campus - placement from Multinational companies. So the success - rate for career - growth is substantially higher than doing a BE degree from an ordinary college. Moreover, you have to ensure a consistent performance in each semester with distinction marks. You have to develop your communication - level in English and must have a flair for solving the complex - issues arising out of the situation. You have to undergo through a screening - process where all your positive qualities will be analysed prior to selection.
In case, you get a job after your diploma, you can take up AMIE course which is at par at BE degree and is having recognition with ministry of HRD. You can clear the papers instalment- wise by studying the course in spare time. Such flexibility allows you to continue your job without a break in your service. Upon completion of AMIE degree, you may enjoy promotion in Executive - cadre in your existing company.

Even though BTech and AMIE are considered equivalent, corporates and government sector still gives more preference to BTech over AMIE. But there are reasons ofcourse!
An engineering degree curriculum includes theory and hands on practice. It is a skill based full time rigorous professional course including project work and even an internship to put the theory learnt to practice. This rigor is maintained in Btech/ BE course. But when it comes to distance learning BE/BTech or AMIE the focus on hands on practice is reduced. Hence corporates would prefer a full time BE/ BTech from a recognized university over other equivalent degrees.
You have a few advantages if you do a full time BE/BTech:
1. Placements are through campus
2. Good conducive learning environment
3. Bond with like minded friends and enjoy college life
4. Participate in competitions, exhibitions, and other activities.
5. After diploma you can take admission to direct second year. So save a year.
I have taught diploma and degree students for the past 23 years. From my experience I would like to offer the following advice:
Go ahead and join a full time college for a degree course.
