Engineering and Medicine are the top two domains that are most preferred by the students in terms of career. Out of the two, the former is the most preferred for the wide variety of courses and streams offered by the domain for each and every aspirant. Technical education in this field helps students to make stable careers in the field of technology and progress.
Talking about the country as a whole, India is the second most popular country in the world whose education and career system still works on “degree”. Keeping this in mind every second student in India wants to become an engineer because they will get a degree and technical education also. Almost every science student in Indian schools dreams of becoming a successful engineer one day. However, the struggle starts from the very first step itself, i.e. choosing the right engineering college best suited to one’s needs and requirements.
In the Indian education system, JEE exam is mandatory for students who wish to pursue higher education in the field of engineering. Every year lakhs of students sit in JEE exam hoping to clear it in one go. Due to less number of seats and high competition, very few students are able to crack the exam. Those who crack it search for ‘The Right Engineering College’.
Here, on this page, we have listed the Top engineering colleges in India based on NIRF’s ranking. The colleges are situated across the nation in all 4 zones. Students wishing for a career in engineering can have a look and can decide on the college that meets their required standards.
