Thank you for your query. I feel this should be you choice. But I will try to give the advantages of both the Air force and engineering options and you can choose which is beneficial for you to join:

Unfortunately you are not eligible for IAF AFCAT.
There is no post for candidates holding Diploma degree in Indian air force.For joining any post in Indian Air Force, one must possess a minimum of 60% marks each in Maths and Physics at 10+2 level. And a Graduation with a minimum of 3 years degree in any discipline from a recognized university with a minimum of 60% marks or a B.Tech degree.
I hope this helps.
