Top Engineering Colleges in India 2017

by Ankita Sabharwal

This article lists the Top Engineering Colleges in India and also the number of seats that are available along with the fee structure. Engineering as a career option is chosen by many, and thus there is a huge demand for Engineering Colleges in India. In India Engineering is a four years course which leads to a B.Tech or BE degree and is considered a professional technical course. The college is listed as a top engineering by a combination of factors like the faculty, student-teacher ratio, the learning environment of the Institute

Total Number of Colleges: There are around 3500 engineering colleges in India and close to 16 Lakh Engineering seats which are filled via various Engineering Entrance Exams that are conducted by CBSE, State Governments, Private Colleges and Universities. All Engineering colleges are 

For the academic session 2017-18, AICTE has decided to cut 60% engineering seats to maintain the quality of Education as well as to do away with the problem of Vacant Seats in these Engineering Colleges. The seats in Top Engineering colleges are filled right away, and the issue of empty seats is with the less popular Engineering Colleges.

We have given the ranking of Top engineering colleges in India as per India Today & Nielsen Survey which was conducted from February 2015 to June 2015, and the final ranking was available in July 2015 so that students could get some help in deciding which college to opt in.

IIT Bombay & IIT Delhi are not in the Top Engineering Colleges list as the survey has dropped colleges from ranking which failed to provide the factual data for determining the ranking.The Ranking given above is only indicative, and students should keep in mind other factors as well in deciding the college.

Important Points to keep in mind while choosing a college

One should always keep in mind the below-mentioned points while choosing a college amongst the Top Engineering Colleges in India:  

1. Rank of the college in India.

 2. Branches available and which you can get there.

 3. Placements details of the college and the branch you are aiming for in particular.

 4. Details of research lab and facilities available if you are interested in research.

 5. (Last but not least) Geographically Remote to your hometown.

About IITs and NITs 

 

IITs & NITs are the Government funded institutes and are also considered the Top most engineering colleges in India. Given below is the list of IITs, NITs including other government colleges in India with a brief information. Most of the engineering colleges are AICTE approved. The list contains all IITs, NITs including other government colleges. The order of the list doesn’t imply its rank or credentials.

IIT and ISM Dhanbad Seats and Fee Structure

 

Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) is a renowned group of autonomous and the Top Engineering Colleges in India. The first IIT in India was set up in May 1950. The IITs award degrees ranging from B.Tech to PhD. All IITs have a common admission process for undergraduate admissions known as JEE Advanced. The IITs all over India receive comparatively higher grants as compared to any other engineering colleges in India. There are 16 IIT's located across the Nation.

  •  Type of Institutes: Government
  • IIT Admission 2017: Based on JEE Main 2017 & JEE Advanced 2017

NIT Seats and Fee Structure

 

The National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are a group of public engineering colleges of India. When they were established, they were referred to as Regional Engineering Colleges (RECs) and were governed by their respective state governments. During 2007, the Indian government declared these colleges as Institute of National Importance. The NITs offer degree ranging from B. Tech to PhD. All NITs are set up independent institutes which enable them to set up their curriculum. The NIT's have a common admission process for undergraduate admissions known as JEE Main. There are 31 NIT's located across the Nation.

As per NIT Council Decision Tuition Fee for all NITs has been revised to Rs. 1,25,000 from the academic year 2016-17. Until last year the tuition fees was Rs. 70,000 per annum, However, other components may vary across all NITs. This increase in the tuition fees is subject to the following safeguards for protecting the socially and economically backward classes:

  • The SC/ST/ PH students shall get the complete fee waiver.
  • The most economically backward students whose family income is less than Rs 1 lakh per annum shall get full remission of the fee.
  • The other economically backward students whose annual family income is between  Rs. 1 lakh to Rs. 5 lakh shall get remission of 2/3rd of the fee.

The revised fee would be applicable for students taking admission starting from academic-year 2016 - 2017 onwards. The students who are currently studying in IITs got admitted before academic session 2016 - 2017 would continue to pay the existing rates.

Kindly Note: As per the official Brochure of 2013 released by CSAB, total numbers of seats offered are given below. But, Out of the total Seats offered, 50% seats are under Home State Quota.
