    Yes, the distance education in respect of Mechanical engineering is possible through Andhra University, IGNOU, Thapar institute of distance education,Jawaharlal Nehru Technical University, Jain Viswa Bharati Instite etc.
    The eligibility condition varies from institute to institute, however the minimum Condition to be eligible for the course of distance education is a pass of class twelve from a recognized Board with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or should have obtained a diploma in the Mechanical engineering from a recognized Polytechnic.
    The practical portion in all the streams is amalgamated with the theoretical portions and for which due guide line is provided to the candidates.
    However, keeping in view of a large number of pass out from both private and Government engineering colleges, the employers of different organizations don't prefer the aspirants passing out of the distance education mode. Aspirants may take up AMIE course for acquiring higher knowledge and also it is a recognized qualification having its approval from the ministry HRD, Government of India.

    Yes there are universities in almost every state that are offering distance learning mode for the Btech degree. However the weight given to these degrees is not much based on the market research. For example IGNOU, YCMOU and few other Indian universities offering BTech degree may not have much credentials outside. You may however find that people who are doing the Btech degree from the following institution may have better options in terms of credibility.

    1. Insittute of Eneingeers (AMIE)
    2. IETE( Institute of electronics and telecommunication engineer)

    Apart from that there are some universities that offer part time Btech degree which can be useful for the people. Syllabus for those may be equivalent or less than the regular degrees. Do understand that though such degrees may be available not many MNCs prefer the candidate from such institution.
