Updated on September 6, 2014

Here is a compilation of the best Engineering colleges which have been sorted state wise so as to give an detailed analysis of the tier-2 and tier-3 engineering colleges which are worth taking admission.

Which region has the best Engineering Colleges in India

Rajasthan is known for Color , Courage, valour, forts , palaces and tourism and the hospitality of its people who greet with a cheerful 'Khamma Ghani' .The state whose mottto is 'Padharo Mhare Desh' burst into the education scene quite recently. This can be gauged from the fact that the state has the third lowest literacy rate in the country. Nearly 28 new private universities are present in the state and students now have a problem of plenty. While some of the new universities are natural extensions of reputed local engineering colleges like JCERC many others are greenfield ventures.

Another hallmark of the state is the establishment of well funded high quality private institutions by established players. The NIIT University set up at Neemrana and the LNMIIT, Jaipur are good examples of the same. Both the institutions have attained a well deserved reputation for quality in a very short time. Though nothing can beat BITS, Pilani which is the best private engineering college in the country and the only Engineering college which is better than almost 10 IITs. Establishment of a new IIT at Jodhpur is the only recent Government investment in Education sector for Engineering field.

Gujarat is considered the hub for jobs in manufacturing sector. The state which contributes around 16% of GDP to the country figures some of the best business houses in the country. Though the state values Business more than a job, Management more than Engineering, best proof being IIM-Ahmedabad but still there are many valuable engineering colleges. One remarkable point is that for nearly 90 percent of institutes Mechanical has the best opening rank cut-off in Gujarat unlike Computer science or electrical in most of the colleges.

Unique engineering subjects such as Rubber Technology, Power Electronics, Biomedical Engineering, Textiles and Plastic Technology are also on offer for engineering giving them a new perspective and some fresh outlook from the cliched Computer science. Electrical mechnical branches. The private sector too is now catching up with institutions like DAIICT and Nirma evolving as very fine academic institutions. Technical education in Gujarat is on road to excellence. Soon centres of excellence will come up in various universities, colleges and institutes across Gujarat.The state government shall set up a committee of prominent academics from different parts of the state and country, including directors of some IITs to decide on the investment.

The state of Madhya Pradesh is the central most state of India. The "Heart of India" has a number of Top Engineering Colleges in its province.The state has a decent presence in technical education overall considering medical, mba, and engineering. While the old government institutions dominate the list, a new list of private sector entrants like Amity, Jaypee, ITM and RKDF are coming up in big way.

While the ABVIIIT at Gwalior and the new IIT at Indore have provided the state with the presence in the brand IIT/IIIT bandwagon, the old institutions like SGITS and IET Indore continue to dominate. Nearly half of the engineering schools have lower than the average quality, which means the regulators have a tough job to bring them on par with the good ones in the state and national level. But still the way the state has grown in the last decade to emerge from one of the backward states in terms of education in India is remarkable feat and is laudable.

  2. Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology, Bhopal (1960)
  3. Indian Institute of Information Technology and Management, Gwalior
  4. Indian Institute of Information Technology, Design and Manufacturing, Jabalpur

Note the 'OTHERS' category comes below the IITs and NITs which are the better colleges


Proximity to the National Capital Region is the predominant lead factor for students opting for colleges in Haryana, particularly in districts like Sonipat Gurgaon and Faridaba, . Another feature is the recent growth in number of private state universities, many of which were engineering institutes a few years back.Seems like UGC has been generous in awarding university status to the engineering Colleges. Good aspect but if done on rampant scale is bound to bring down on the quality standards.

NationaI Institute of Technology, Kurukshetra is among the most preferred institutions in the state and also one among the oldest. For budding aspirants, the most sought after disciplines of engineering are Mechanical, Computer Science, and Electronics & Communication. Among the unique branches, Haryana has colleges that offer degree in Chemical, Automobile and IT stand apart. Similar to the trend in other states, but a surprising fact is that IT is no longer the most preferred choice.

  • NIT, Kurukshetra
  • ITM Gurgaon
  • Panchkula Engineering College, Haryana
  • M.M. Engineering College, Mullana
  • University Institute of Engineering and Technology, Kurukshetra
  • Institute of Instrumentation Engineering, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra
  • Manav Rachna College of Engineering , Faridabad
  • Apeejay College of Engineering, Gurgaon
  • Vaish College of Engineering, Rohtak
  • B.M. Institute of Engineering & Technology
  • N.C. College of Engineering, Israna.

Punjab was home to one of the earliest entrants in the agricultural engineering domain. Well it also happens to to be the granary o the country. The best college within the state still remains the National Institute of Technology at Jalandhar. Thapar University has been one of the pre-eminent private sector university in the state that is host of other prominent private players like Lovely Professional University which claims itself to be the largest private university in India, and Chitkara.

The formation of Punjab Technical University as a state-level nodal university for affiliating technical colleges has led to certain amount of avoidable centralisation of technical education. But that is still a debatable point. A fine line is drawn which needs to be adhered to between centralisation and autonomy of education. The case in point for a disaster stands out to be the Four Year University Program launched by Delhi University. Where B.Tech Courses had to be removed after 1 year and converted into B.Sc, causing loss to eh students. The new IIT at Ropar is one of the newest initiatives by the state in this domain.

      Hi Kunal,

      For BITSAT, I remember reading on your blog that if we order the books from the link you have on this page then you will send material which will be useful for BITSAT. I don'e see this now. Is the offer no longer valid :-( :-( :-( BTW, you have nice info here and I did order the Arihant book from Amazon using the link from this page.
