Top Engineering Colleges in India based on India Today and Outlook MDRA surveys

World is getting more and more competitive with each progressing day, irrespective of field of sector either it is job sector, education or any other related field. However, there are ups and downs in every field. Sometimes information technology is more in demand and it is business management on other occasions. However, quality counts everywhere.Faculty, infrastructure, quality laboratories, financial supports etc., adds value to the education depending on the institution. Engineering education was in great demand few years back and recession affected it recently. One should always exercise great caution in selection of an institution since engineering education during degree courses costs heavily. As per the reports, approx. 8.0 lakh students are graduating in India every year in engineering and 2.0 lakhs are said to possess employable education. This has resulted in closure of many private engineering colleges due to plenty of seats remaining vacant. There are reports that non-employable graduates experience lot of problems in getting jobs and they are mostly underemployed in majority of instances.If information from unconfirmed and personal sources is to be believed, such graduates receive a meager amount in return to their services that is insufficient to meet their routine expenditure.Hence, engineering course aspirants and their parents should cautiously select a college and branch and research about the placement prospects.
A comparative list of Outlook MDRA Survey of Engineering colleges in India and India Today for 2012 is provided here. Institutes' ranking for a particular survey is shown by a '-' if institute could not be ranked due to non-participation or other reason.
