By: Archana on October 21, 2018

Engineering without a doubt is one of the most common higher education and career choices in India and significantly high number of students taking admissions in the different streams of engineering is a clear indication of the same. The number of colleges offering engineering degree in India is also very high in ratio comparing with colleges of other courses.

Top engineering colleges in India 2018

The popularity of course and college is also very significant from the number of registration taking place every year in the national level engineering entrance exams like JEE Main, JEE Advanced, BITSAT, VITEEE, WBJEE, and others.

Interesting facts about Engineering in India

  • As per the studies were done in the past few years, the result shows that every year India produces 1.5 million engineers from approx. 4000 institutes and surprisingly it is more than the engineers of USA and China combined.
  • Every year around 1.2 to 1.5 million candidates appear for the JEE Main, scores of which are valid for taking admissions in all other Engineering Colleges of India.
  • 2, 20,000 candidates in the year 2017 qualified JEE Main to appear for the JEE Advanced.

Top 10 Engineering Colleges of India 2019 by NIRF Ranking:

Before we go ahead to check the list of top engineering colleges in 2018 it is important to know what is NIRF and the parameters on which the colleges are ranked for better clarification on why a particular college is allotted the respective rank.

What is NIRF?

NIRF is abbreviated for The National Institutional Ranking Framework which came in existence from September 29, 2015, approved by Minister of Human Resource Development. The NIRF give rankings to the colleges under various categories like top 100 engineering colleges in India or top MBA colleges in India, the ranking is done on basis of some pre underlined parameters which we are going to discuss in details further.

NIRF Ranking Parameters:

List of Top Engineering Colleges of India:

On basis of the above-mentioned parameters of ranking, every year since 2015 NIRF releases a list of top engineering colleges of India to help students self-analyze everything and choose the best college for themselves. The higher the ranks the better the college is. For example, in the year 2017, the engineering college topped the list was IIT Madras followed by IIT Bombay and IIT Delhi. Similarly, a list is released for 2018 also after evaluating and analyzing the colleges on the said parameters.

Here are the top 10 engineering colleges in India for 2019:

  1. Indian Institute of Technology Madras:

    IIT Madras like last year again standing strong in the 1st position with an overall score of 88.95.
