14

Its been long time since we have published any of the top lists – Trak.in used to see a lot of them in 2008, somehow it went down in 2009. But 2010 promises to be different. We will be making concentrated effort on bringing you various Top Lists ( They serve as a good reference point, and they are good for building blog traffic as well :)

top  technology Colleges in India

Coming back, IDC, one of the leading research firms in association with Dataquest, recently released list of “Top 20 Technology Colleges in India”. Here are some of the highlights of that survey.

IIT Kharagpur was adjudged the best Technology School followed by IIT Delhi and IIT Madras. Infact, 6 out of top 10 Technology colleges featured IIT colleges, which is why IITians are so highly regarded, not only in India, but across the globe.

BITS Pilani, which I regarded quite highly is placed at number 8. Somehow, I always thought that BITS was one of the top 3 technology schools in India !

How top Technology Colleges fared in Placements in 2009

We all know 2009 was not a good year for placements – Total placements fell to 73% from 84% the previous year. However there were 16 out of top 111 Technology colleges that managed to get 100% placements.

One would imagine that these 16 colleges would be similar to the list given above. After all, better colleges get better placements. But that does not seem to be so. There were a few colleges who did not figure in the top 20 technology colleges list, but managed to attain 100% placements. Really commendable, I must say.

Here are the 16 colleges that attained 100% placements:

  6. Arun Prabhudesai says

    I have now updated the post to reflect that IIT Mumbai has not participated in this survey !

  7. rahul dev says

    hiiiiiiiiiii………….. i think it waz joke dat iit bombay and ism dhanbad is not present in this damed list ?????
    so plz update dat list as soon as possible ????????
    not only but also many of us never belive in such kind of ranking…….

  8. BigAdda says

    This is a joke. IIT Bombay is absent and is arguably the number 1 tech school in India by far!! Such obvious omissions mean the list has no credibility.

  9. Navin Kabra says

    Somebody looking at this list is going to assume that IIT-Bombay is not one of the top 20 schools in India. Which is completely stupid, because the reason IIT-Bombay is not there is because it “did not participate”. So what else is missing from the list? There’s no really good way of knowing, right?

    This, and other such methodological issues are a HUGE problem with such lists. (Just like the top MBA schools list without ISB in it.)

  10. Ashish says

    what happened to IIT mumbai ?

    I think they missed it :)

  11. Aswani says

    Thanks for the information. very useful.

  12. Ankur Verma says

    Was with a current Amity Noida BTech student yesterday – he mentioned that the 100% placement claim by Amity is misleading – this number apparently include people who have decided to skip the job hunt and move onto higher studies (mba, ms etc). For the genuine placements, the packages are nothing to rave home about.

    1. Deepak says

      Dear Ankur,

      People who go for higher studies are not called as unplaced. They are unplacd by their own choice

  13. Vishal Sanjay says

    Thats a good list!! Surprising to see no tech college in Bangalore is in the list. Anyhow I’m not the one who is interested in technology as an higher education. I was expecting IIT to make the top of the list, the graduates there are geniuses. I also wanted to know on what basis are these schools ranked.
