Top Engineering Colleges in India
In the year 2015, some of the universities based on their Rating and on the basis of the crowd the institute has and a combination of all other factors including engineering colleges’ research output, industry interface, referred publications and their academic productivity. Following are some of the names of Top Engineering Colleges in India which will bring you a comprehensive list of nearly over 600 best Engineering institutes existing across India. This annual target of rating top Engineering Colleges in India is mainly aimed at helping all the engineering aspirants to take informed decision required for their engineering admissions.
WHY RATINGS ARE CRUCIAL?
Because, the rating provides us an overall idea of where an institution stands in terms of position and power. Since we have given a very high percentage of weightage to cut- offs lists, institutions which are rated AAA and above would really mean that entry into them is not easy task for those with less than 80 percentage . Ultimately it has resulted in a very small number of colleges making the lime-light into the high tables just by the cut-offs they attract students as, with very little or even no research or publications.
RATING? HOW DO THEY HELP?
Ratings are not a direct indicator of placements. They have no absolutely mean to measure or verify the placement statistics and hence they cannot end up quantifying them. But, Generally, at least for the top 60 percentile of the student-class, a B.Tech from an AAA or above college will give you a very reasonable chance of securing good placements.
|AAAAA Rating||95 – 99 percentage of marks||Exceptional|
|AAAA+ Rating||90 – 94 percentage of marks||Outstanding|
|AAAA Rating||80 – 89 percentage of marks||Very Good|
|AAA+ Rating||70 – 79 percentage of marks||Good|
|AAA Rating||60 – 69 percentage of marks||Above Average|
|AA+ Rating||50 – 59 percentage of marks||Fair|
|AA Rating||40 – 49 percentage of marks||Average|
|A+ Rating||35 – 39 percentage of marks||Pass|
|A Rating||< 35 percentage of marks||Improve|
RATINGS, WHAT THEY DEPICT: AAAAA
- THE LEADS:
- One must know that only 5 colleges out of the total 3519 colleges which were surveyed could achieve AAAA rating.
- Without any doubt, all of them were well- established, e.g IITs from Kanpur, Delhi, Bombay, Madras, Delhi.
- Each one of them has their own paper- publications and above 1500 articles every year are published through them itself.
- Average citation figures surveyed are between 2.4-5.5.
- To one’s surprise none of the above IITs were either accredited or had any participants in the TEQIP programme
- All of the above are good at extramural research,
- IIT Bombay , IIT Madras :substantial reach and diversity.
- IIT Kharagpur: Look after topping in terms of academic productivity.
- IIT Bombay: manages to score on H-Index
- IITB : high on impact and effectiveness.
- In lane of IP: IIT Madras is lagging behind every other top player in this terms, university, though having best industrial interface.
- AAAA+: THE CHALLENGERS:
- Coming up best rating is gained by only 28 engineering colleges (0.81%) in India.
- Just it has one extra college than recorded last year.
- Last year this bundle of colleges was evenly balanced between public affiliated and shared between Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh.
- Karnataka too has come into the scenario with quite a few colleges of its own.
- Most of the colleges in this category have a quantified and diverse extramural funding and their ever-visible research output in terms of sponsored labs and publications is what makes them outstanding from the rest.
- Annual produce is uniform in this area and is relatively less for any private sector universities like VIT, Manipal, though VIT is slightly better.
- Majority of the members in the faculty in the private sector institutions begin to publish, their output and standing would take A HIGH- jump.
- What separates a college in this cluster of university is that it being dominated by IITs, Tier-1 NITs, and a few IIITs.
- AAAA: STRIVERS TO THE LAST:
- Any ever existing technical education expert who seeks to improve the quality of their respective engineering colleges must focus on these 58 colleges.
- These are the included colleges with true potential for excellence and expertise.
- The colleges in this category admit students who are in the 99 percent category, but their attraction in regarding to research and publish is still in the nascent stage.
- Amongst all the existing 372 institutions that are a part of TEQIP I and TEQIP II, this swamp has the largest number of awardees and most of them have funding coming in for their institution development.
- These universities are needed to focus on Industrial research more and more.
- AAA+:ANTS IN ALINE:
- The 100+ colleges in this group are what one would call very good teaching institutions.
- They have a reasonably good faculty group of members and some of them have even published occasionally.
- Out of the four parameters to be considered, they would mark up scores in at least two or three, but preferences by students is what they actually give priority to.
- This group is highly dominated by high-quality affiliated colleges, which are very fine in teaching and are making successful way into research activities also.
- This cluster of university also has a number of young fine universities which were fine teaching institutions previously.
- AAA:HAVING A MILESTONE TO CROSS:
- These are the 256 institutions form the base of the good institutions’ existing in the pyramids of history.
- They excel in just one of the four parameters.
- Most have performed very well with respect to student preferences and what they need.
- In terms of cut- off lists they are amongst the top 80-85 percentage with some inch closer to the 90 mark ones.
- Some young and not so doing well universities in this cluster have much better research output and industry interface.
- But their ever increasing high fee rule seems unattractive to top quality students.
