Top 50 Government Engineering Colleges


Note: This is a follow-up post of earlier post on Top 50 private engineering colleges in India

In 2007 we had published the Outlook India survey of and , but this time around Outlook has skipped the survey.

However, Mint has published a survey ranking Top 50 Government & Private Engineering colleges as well on exact same parameters that Outlook had done earlier, so the comparison between the rankings can be justified.

Following are the parameters on which the rankings have been done:

  • Intellectual Capital
  • Pedagogic systems (the art or science of teaching; instructional methods)
  • Industry Interface
  • Placements
  • Infrastructure and Facilities

I am giving here the cumulative scores and not broken down on the parameters given above. You can find complete breakdown of scores here.

Unlike the Private Engineering Colleges, this list is seeing lot of shuffle in the top 10 ranking. IIT Kharagpur was at the top spot in 2008, whereas it has fallen to 4th position. IIT, Mumbai which was at third position last time has taken the top position, followed by IIT Kanpur & IIT, Delhi.
