Top Indian Private Engineering colleges of 2008


Outlook India recently released the top 35 Private Engineering Colleges of India. As this blog is visited by lot of students, I thought it would be very helpful for them.

I had also published the Top 50 Private Engineering colleges of 2007, so students can also compare which colleges haves risen in the ranking and the ones that have not done well.

The change in rankings is mainly due to the change in Weightage for various different parameters, like Infrastructure this time is has been given a Weightage of 650 which is much higher than the one given last year.

methodology for rankings remain the same like last time. Here are the meaning of abbreviations.

  • IC: Intellectual Capital (600)
  • PS: Pedagogic systems (200)(the art or science of teaching; instructional methods)
  • II: Industry Interface (300)
  • PP: Placement Performance (300)
  • I: Infrastructure and Facilities (650)
  • GT: Grand Total (2150)

  22. rock says

    Worst most Engineering college is AMACE at Vadamavandal near Kanchipuram.Here seperates diploma students and regular students seperately and harrazes the diploma students. No care on students. Especially in ECE. No HOD. All saturday holiday. No proper classes. Strikes regularly.

    Miss. Shyamati, Miss Sulochana, Mrs Malashi, Mrs Girija were the lectures mainly craeting problems. Most of the students were also not willing to study. Trust is not at all calling parents meeting or such activities.
    Trust wants money only.They are not interested about students.
    Humble request to the diploma students: Dont select AMACE for your higher studies, because it is a worst college.

  23. akriti says

    i am very confused which college is the best coz im unable to know about the placements of tamil nadu colleges. which one is the best college in tamil nadu? last year it was satyabhama and this year its not in the list so what should i do now ? should i choose coll from the given list or should i choose it from the comments written below?

  24. Rahul k.B. says

    pls do  refer this link—>

  26. Rajesh Kumar T says

    Rajesh Kumar T Sona college is not so good as how it is ranked. it is the one of the worst college in tamil nadu. I have one friend (Ravi Kumar P) who did his B.E(Mech) in SONA.
    he even does not know what Newton’s third law is. it clearly shows the quality of teaching in SONA.
    I dont agree with this survey. It would be acceptable if sona is not ranked among top 35.Your comment is awaiting moderation.

  28. parikshit singh says

    itm is one of yhe the best college in ncr and improving dayby day with a excellent placement record during last years

  29. ARJUN says

    Last year Sathyabama University was ranked at 21 & this time its not even in this list of top 35 inspite of it being accredited with B++ grade by NAAC (Which is the highest grade given to private engg colleges by NAAC).

    I think Sathyabama University should be in the top 10 colleges in the country as it is the best engg college in Chennai city & comes within top 5 in South India.
