India’s Top 50 Engineering Colleges Survey – 2019

One major skill that the engineers of today require is problem-solving. Engineers must constantly be on the lookout for a better way to do things; and this is not to increase their market quotient, but to operate within an increasingly complex set of constraints. With the resources of the world becoming increasingly limited, helping everyone on the planet to achieve an acceptable quality of life should be the number one priority for the engineers around the world. For this to happen, one needs to change what is being taught in the engineering institutions, ergo, change the curriculum and the teaching methodologies.

Just as how charity begins at home, a sustainable environment begins at the campus. When the students are taught to value natural resources, and are shaped to live in harmony with the environment, change happens. However, not all can pioneer this change. To be a change maker, an institution has to be strong footed, with a clear vision and mission.  These institutions should aim at producing holistic engineers instead of traditional engineers.

Age-old teaching methodologies have to be put away to make way for a more advanced approach where we can see a glorious fusion between technology and textbook. The institute should help students collaborate with their mentors and teachers, so that the four walls of the institute turn out to be an avenue that efficaciously facilitates free flow of ideas. An ideal college should also provide opportunities for realising these ideas, have a good leader, and above all, shape each student to be a beacon of hope and change for a better tomorrow. As poetic as it sounds, checking all these boxes is not an easy task. This is why we at the Academic Insights have taken it as a priority to call out these changemakers.

Thanks to our panel of experts, who laboriously studied, in detail, these colleges for their competence with respect to their performance in pedagogy, placements, research initiatives, and the quality of education, we have compiled a list of the “Top Engineering Colleges in India, Ranking 2018”. With unparalleled faculty, curriculum, courses, and research facilities, these institutes have maintained their level in the field of engineering education.

We believe that it is of paramount importance that these names be listed as they have successfully and consistently produced global players. Moreover, we hope to enlighten the upcoming engineering collages to evaluate themselves and take leaves from these seasoned institutes, as these institutions have become islands of excellence.
