Career diplomas are awarded for completing vocational or technical training programs at post-secondary learning institutions, such as Polytechnics in India. These diploma programs are focused on providing specific education for job opportunities or advancement. The objective of all diploma programs is to provide opportunities for employment in industry; the other option available to students after completing the diploma course is to get admission directly to the second year of a degree programme in the same stream. Most diploma programs combine traditional classroom learning with hands-on training, which is one of the reasons why industries prefer diploma holders. The three year post S.S.C. Diploma course in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering, which is offered by St. Xavier’s Technical Institute, Mahim, Mumbai, provides for work experience opportunities through in-plant training and also job placement assistance. The Government of Maharashtra has accorded Minority Status to this Institute as conducted by the Catholic minority; for Non-Minority candidates the admissions are done through Centralized Admission Process (C.A.P.), the details of which are available on the Directorate of Technical Education website www.dte.org.in.  

Globalization and liberalization have seen the entry of multinational companies into India in all sectors.

An ability to express oneself, perseverance and consistency are some of the other skills required. Throughout the duration of the engineering course students are required to put in long hours of study, work with tools and work in teams.
