Hi readers! Are you looking for the list of best engineering colleges in India? Do you want to apply for B.E./B.Tech./M.E./M.Tech. admission in 2022? If yes, this post will be of help to you. Here, I’ve compiled a list of best engineering colleges in India.
Here, you will find the state-wise list of engineering colleges. Apart from the names of colleges, you will also find additional information such as – address, admission process, popular engineering courses and affiliation details.
Engineering education aspirants will benefit from this post. Engineering education is quite popular among Indian students. At UG level, a large number of 12th pass students (Science stream) apply for B.E. or B.Tech. admission!
The main aim of this post is to help you find a decent engineering college. Each year, hundreds of thousands of candidates apply for engineering admission (at UG and PG levels).
Engineering admission in India is facilitated through engineering entrance exams. These exams are conducted at college, state and national levels.
Come, let us take a quick look at the different types of engineering programs available in India –
Different types of engineering courses in India
Engineering courses in India can be classified into different types on the basis of factors such as – academic level and format of the course. For example, based on the academic level, engineering programs can be broadly classified into the following types – UG, PG and Doctoral Degree programs.
B.E. and B.Tech. – these are Bachelor’s Degree (Engineering) programs. These professional courses belong to UG academic level. UG stands for undergraduate level.
M.E., M.Tech. and PG Diploma (Engineering) programs – these advanced engineering courses belong to PG academic level. PG stands for postgraduate level.
Doctoral Degree programs (such as – PhD) are research-oriented engineering programs. These programs focus extensively on research work.
Let us talk about the format of the course now. Based on the course format, engineering programs in India can be broadly classified into the following types – Diploma in Engineering, B.E. or B.Tech., Dual Degree programs, M.E. or M.Tech., PG Diploma programs and Doctoral Degree programs.
Eligibility criteria and duration
Depending upon the format of the course, eligibility criteria and duration varies from one course to another. Diploma in Engineering course is three years long. On the other hand, B.E. or B.Tech. course is 4 years long.
If you want to apply for Diploma in Engineering admission, minimum educational qualification required is – 10th pass. In order to apply for B.E. or B.Tech. admission, one must have passed 12th Science with specified subjects (usually PCM subjects).
Generally speaking, engineering admission process is carried out on the basis of merit marks secured by applicants in relevant entrance exam. Engineering entrance exams are carried out at state, college and national levels.
UG and PG engineering admission – entrance exams facilitate both of these events. For example – JEE exam facilitates UG engineering admission process and GATE facilitates PG engineering admission process.
However, admission process may vary from one institute to another. Many colleges have seats reserved under NRI or management quota. These seats are also known as ‘donation based’ seats. Some colleges are also known to carry out direct admission process (due to large number of vacant seats in those colleges).
