Featured-Best Engineering Colleges in India

There is a proverb that often erupts around the IT corners. It says- ‘If engineering was a religion in India, it would be 5th most popular religion.’ India is a factory that produces about 1.5 Million Engineers every year, twice the total population of Iceland. It is, in fact, more than the total Engineers produced by U.S and China put together. In 2014, this figure surpassed those of people appearing in GMAT and GRE across the world. It’s even said that India’s coaching industry earns more than the lucrative Bollywood industry. And Engineering Coaching Institutes share a major part in it. Plus, the fact that a number of renowned Engineers in the Silicon Valley are of Indian origin also acts as a motivational magnet for the aspirants. Engineering today is offering students the opportunity to revolutionize the way we live our lives every day.

The most important decision in life is your choice!

Students who have just finished their 12th standard, often get confused when it comes to selecting an Engineering College. There is no doubt that better colleges have a better education system, infrastructure, better professors, and better classmates. It also offers a better resume value and better industry network.

How to choose an Engineering College?

The IITs are better than other engineering colleges in various academic aspects, whereas best state colleges (like COEP, VJTI, PICT) are better than the second-tier engineering colleges. According to a report by National Employability Report 2015-16, conducted by a job skills matching platform called Aspiring Minds 80% of engineers in India are unemployable. Most of these engineers come from average and below average Colleges. So, choosing a good institute paves the way to a good future. Hence, you should keep in mind all those parameters by which you can judge a good institute most suited to you.
