Engineering – Digree vs Diploma . Which one is better and why ?

Nishant Chaudhary

First of all you have to understand the difference between a degree and diploma.Diplomas are similar to associate’s degree programs but they take less time because they doesn’t include general education courses which are present there in the degrees to support a more rounded education.Earning a degree opens up more potential doors to a student than a certificate or diploma. Many careers require that the applicant has earned at least a bachelor’s degree; several career options require more than this.
