Engineering college rankings are my great interest, as I studied from a private college and ended up finishing my PhD in IIT. Since 2005 I see ranking by different agencies and magazines, which never presented it from a students’ perspective.

Most of the ranking are based on some assumption and after a listing they again release revised list modifying some ranks.

Here I present a list for top ranked Engineering schools in India based on Student quality and preference, Faculty, Infrastructure and Industry interface or placements. This Top Engineering Colleges in India 2009 ranking will definitely help students to decide their career paths. Also to help with engineering courses a good analysis of each engineering course with future scope is given at Best engineering courses.

A genuine effort to find is made to find Top Private Engineering Colleges in India and also tried Ranking of NITs in India to help students find right place for their career. The list of Top NITs in India is a good resource for M.Tech and AIEEE admissions.

If you have any question, suggestions or need more information, please don’t hesitate to drop a comment. I will get back with more information within a week time.

I kept new IITs up in the ranking even though they are quite new because of quality of students joining and IIT Hyderabad little up in ranking because a lot of students from Andhra Pradesh make into to IITs and they prefer IIT Hyderabad over less rank IITs.

For a detailed post on why new IITs are top ranked check this.

In few days do not forget to check ranking of private engineering colleges in each state..
From 49 – 55, these are private universities and are added because of student diversity. These universities have students from all over India. On the other hand there are few better government institutes at each state than the above said private universities.
