In the year 2009, I tried rank NIT based on Research and especially considered Computer Science and Electronics departments. Last whole year I spend in collecting data about NITs, like AIEEE opening and closing ranks, GATE cutoff scores faculty and placement statistics to make ranking as close as possible. I also made a list of Top AIEEE colleges exclusive of opening and closing rank in AIEEE, and hope this is useful for students preparing for counseling. You can refer to NIT Ranking 2012 for latest ranking.

There are another 10 new NITs announced and will accept admissions this year. I recommend new NITs when compared to old state universities. The reasons are same are I mentioned in New IITs Vs old NITs and universities.

If you have just passed 10+2, you may find Engineering Courses: Future, Prospects, Institutes and Studies in India, and Which is the best engineering course, useful. If you already graduated and looking for M.Tech you may find M.Tech colleges in India, M.Tech admissions 2010 and GATE 2010 Analysis useful. There are lots of other articles please use search to explore more.

This ranking is mostly influenced by AIEEE opening and closing ranks. I considered All India rank for open categories and for three different departments. Based on two simple mathematical formulas and took faculty qualification in two different departments. I feel placements are great in most of the NITs.
