Have you ever heard someone saying something known as IETE? Well, the phonic would have sounded “IIT” though with much uncertain “ehh, did he mean IIT?” Better late than never. Started in the year 1953 in New Delhi, IETE is abbreviated as Institution of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers. IETE is also termed Scientific Industrial and Research Organization (SIRO). It is the national apex body in the field of communications and information technology for creating smarter engineers who can put pieces together. A small pool of youngsters saw a need for establishing a benchmark platform for those blessed with lateral thinking ability for engaging on research and development. Just like any other engineering admission process, IETE employs procedures for enrolling students through its chapters located in major cities and geographically vital locations. The basic requirement for enrollment into their various programs is Standard X for Diploma in IETE, and respective XII for graduation in IETE (Grad, IETE).

In India, more importantly in the southern region, more number of engineers prefer joining a ITES organisation as it’s attractive with its global view and instantaneous monetary benefits. This is evident from the fact that even a undergraduate in Electrical Engineering expresses keenness for a career in programming. ITES success story in attracting students from all branches goes to relative ease one can find in computer science when other core subjects are compared. Thanks to recession (for every good reason), techies employed in heavy weight corporate firms have realized the importance of nurturing themselves in diverse applications and in learning conventional cross domain knowledge. We shall now see what every student of Mathematics and Physics has to have to be conferred a bachelor’s degree in engineering science.
a) knack of practicing methods of mathematics, processes of science and engineering;
b) skill to invent and conduct experiments, and to interpret data using simpler calculations;
c) high quality observation to prepare a system, its components, and therefore a procedural legacy to meet desired needs for generations to come;
d) proven zeal to function in inter-disciplinary environments, such as space operations and military engineering;
e) to visualize depth of engineering problems;
f) thorough understanding of social responsibility;
g) to communicate well in order to make his sub-ordinates understand the requirement;
From the above, it’s obvious that while an engineering student is identified as the summation of analysis and computation, it’s the responsibility of institutes which impart technical education to inculcate those in curriculum rather than to simplify syllabus and/ give less importance to those areas left out of the influence of globalization and liberalization. This is where the IETE assumes significance as it has best curriculum and well established Regional Examination Boards (REBs) to conduct practical lab examination to test a candidate’s (student member of IETE) level of understanding and demonstration.
For those who want to mentor themselves and who are vexed with institutional rote learning, for which admissions are usually held through ranks in respective entrance tests, IETE appears cut above the rest. A student member, after due process of appearances and clearances in the theory and lab examinations, is officially acknowledged with Associate Member of IETE (AMIETE) which is generally referred to as Graduate in IETE. This is equivalent to normal University Engineering College degree, and is recognized by IISc, IITs, BARC, DAE units, ISRO, UPSC, and other state public service commissions, for requirements.
