JEECUP or UPJEE Polytechnic is an annual state-level entrance exam that determines the admission of applicants to the participating public and private polytechnic institutes of Uttar Pradesh. The entrance exam, established in the years 1986 to 1987, grants student admission to diploma courses in management, technology, engineering (diploma equivalents to BE, B.Tech), etc. 

Once you complete your diploma in engineering, you can take a lateral exam and switch a degree program. However, if you want to enrol in an engineering degree program from the very start, we suggest you take up a B.Tech entrance exam and also make sure you fulfil the B.Tech eligibility criteria.  

On the official website of the JEECUP, the authorities will shortly release the brochure for the examination.
