Diploma Programs

The diploma courses are categorised into two broad categories of National Diploma and Higher Diploma. Both National Diploma and Higher Diploma Courses are offered for a duration of 2 years. However the National diploma programmes provide the basic knowledge and skills whereas higher diploma programmes are a head up as regards to education.  They provide an indepth training with broader and intensive coverage equivalent to that of an associate degree. For instance, a student of Mechanical Engineering at National Diploma will study Basic Mathematics rather than Advanced Mathematics offered by a student of Higher Diploma in Mechanical Engineering.
